Grapefruit and Drug Interactions
Check with your healthcare practitioner about consuming grapefruit juice if youre taking pharmaceutical drugs. Certain pharmaceutical drugs combined with grapefruit juice become more potent. Compounds in grapefruit juice, including naringenin, slow the normal detoxification and metabolism processes in the intestines and liver, which hinders the bodys ability to breakdown and eliminate these drugs.
