Default Yeast Nutrient and Salt Additions

Question, do you consider the affects of adding yeast nutrient to the boil when adjusting water chemistry?

No. There aren't significant amounts of important brewing ions in yeast nutrient. RDWAHAHB.

I use Wyeast which is:

A blend of vitamins, minerals, inorganic nitrogen, organic nitrogen, zinc, phosphates and other trace elements that will benefit yeast growth and complete fermentation.

Using 2.2 grams seems like a tiny amount even if it was all salts so I don't consider it at all.
