Grapefruit juice could be taken along with medication: the nutrient-drug reaction uncovered!

As previously thought and followed that patients on medications for blood pressure and cholesterol were not allowed grapefruit juice could change soon. Those affected can now safely consume grapefruit juice- which has lot of benefits as a breakfast regular.// The ban on this juice for some was due to some studies that have shown it can lead to possible overdoses and dangerous side effects. The answer has been found by scientists who have discovered the active ingredient that caused the reactions. As thought the reason being flavonoids which give the juice a bitter taste are no longer seen as the culprits. The reason is a group of chemicals called furanocoumarins. US scientists carried out tests with felodipine, a blood pressure drug known to interact with grapefruit juice. the tests made a comparison between the ability of whole grapefruit juice to affect the absorption of felodipine with that of furanocoumarin-free juice. According to lead researcher Professor Paul Watkins, "We found that removing the furanocoumarins from grapefruit juice entirely got rid of this interaction. It should now be possible to market the furanocoumarin-free grapefruit juice to patients who would otherwise need to avoid grapefruit." Thus, there is no need to fret, indulge in grapefruit juice to your hearts content and follow medical advice.
