Dieters' Vitamins

The Claim: Low-carb dieters need a special supplement to make up for missing vitamins and minerals.

The Big Picture: Women on strict low-carb diets may benefit from formulas with added B vitamins (found in whole grains) and vitamin C, lutein, lycopene, and beta-carotene (for those limiting fruits and certain vegetables), says Andrew Shao, PhD, vice president of Scientific and Regulatory Affairs for the Council for Responsible Nutrition in Washington, D.C. A supplement that contains zinc, iron, and calcium, often found in dairy and whole grains, may also prevent the loss of nutrients, because those food groups tend to be shunned by low-carbers.

Bottom Line: If you're on a diet, talk to your doctor about whether you need to take a supplement.

Drugs that deplete vitamins When taken regularly, some frequently prescribed medications can diminish or deplete your body's stores of important vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. If you take any medications, talk with a nutrition-oriented medical professional about whether you should add certain supplements to your daily regimen.
