Have GERD so take PPIs (pantoprazole) daily. Will this affect my absorption of vitamins and nutrients? if so, should I take supplements? Thanks

In brief: Theoretically

IRON is best absorbed in an acid environment and taking a tablet of Vitamin C if you are taking Iron supplements may be helpful!


Hope this is helpful!
