Juice and Medicine Don't Mix

Grapefruit juice and medications don’t always get along. Now, a new Canadian study, suggests that other common juices may not be medication friendly either.
A new Canadian study suggests that juices like grapefruit, apple and orange consumed with medication, could limit the body’s absorption of the medicine.
According to the study these common juices interfered with certain anti-cancer medications, beta blockers, antibiotics, and allergy medications just to name a few.
The study results need to be confirmed but, for now, the smartest option is to take all your medications with a full glass, not a sip, of cool water. A full glass of water will help the medicine dissolve better.
