Activated carbon(?) bad for plants?

Are filters with activated carbon(?) bad for planted aquariums? I read somewhere that they retain a lot of nutrients from water and therefore are not suitable for planted aquariums? Anyone got ideas on this? And what kind o filter would be more suitable for this kind of aquarium?
