Drugs That Can WRECK Energy #shorts



🚨DRUGS THAT CAN WRECK ENERGY🚨⁠
.⁠
Yesterday I shared things that can boost mitochondrial function AND hopefully boost your energy⁠
.⁠
Remember — mitochondria are the powerplants of ur cells that make ATP⁠ (aka energy)⁠
⁠.⁠
And if they don’t have the nutrients they need or they get damaged, mitochondria can’t produce energy like they’re supposed to⁠
.⁠
U should know that certain things CAN damage them⁠
.⁠
👉Specifically — certain drugs💊⁠
.⁠
Now taking any of these drugs doesn’t automatically mean ur mitochondria are wrecked⁠

But it’s a good time to think about your level of exposure to them because some of these are heavily used for pretty much any ache + pain 😬⁠
.⁠
💊 DRUGS THAT WRECK UR MITOCHONDRIA 🚨⁠
.⁠
1. Tylenol (acetaminophen)⁠
.⁠
2. Certain antibiotics – especially in the Fluoroquinolone (ie. Cipro), aminoglycosides + β-lactams⁠
.⁠
3. AZT – HIV antiviral⁠
.⁠
4. Illicit drugs like cocaine + methamphetamines⁠
.⁠
5. Griseofulvin – antifungal ⁠
.⁠
6. l-DOPA ⁠
.⁠
7. NSAIDs + Aspirin + Indomethacin⁠
.⁠
8. Statins – depletes CoQ10 which u know from my posts is vital for mitochondria to make energy⚡⁠
.⁠
9. Anti-diabetic drugs – Metformin + Actos are 2 problematic ones⁠
.⁠
.⁠
If u are taking any of these drugs, have a convo with ur doctor about ur concerns.⁠
.⁠
🙅‍♀️Never just stop taking prescribed meds without ur doctor’s guidance!⁠

It’s critical to have conversations about drugs + their side effects so that u can make the most informed decisions for ur body + health⁠
.⁠
👉Were u aware that drugs can damage mitochondria?⁠
.⁠
👉Which of these REALLY SHOCK you?⁠
