How Do We Deplete Our Nutrients?

Below is a list of various nutrients and the corresponding substance(s) that deplete the specific nutrient from your body. The list doesn't mention that these nutrients are for the most part water-soluble meaning that every day they need to be replaced to keep a sufficient amount of nutrients for us to survive.

Is it any wonder that after we indulge in certain foods, drinks, and drugs, that needed nutrients are depleted to such a sufficient amount that our body systems become compromised.
