We have devoted much attention to the useful properties of grapefruit and diets with it. But, despite the huge amount of useful and nutritional properties of this fruit, grapefruit has harmful qualities, and hence contraindications to use.
Remember that one should be very careful including in the diet a grapefruit. There is a category of people who should give up fruit. And next, we will explain why.
- Do not eat grapefruit those who take statin drugs to lower cholesterol, as well as in the use of drugs, regulating blood pressure. The enzymes in the grapefruit can neutralize the effect of the medication.
- You can’t eat grapefruit with liver problems, stomach ulcers and duodenal ulcers. Acid fruit can cause worsening problems with the gastrointestinal tract.
- Do not eat grapefruit if taking birth control pills since the citrus can destroy their action.
- More amount of acid in the fruit also has a destructive effect on tooth enamel, so you should always rinse your mouth with water.
- It is impossible to wash down medicines with grapefruit juice, as it can reduce or even neutralize their action.
- But if you consume a grapefruit with your mind (and if there is no personal contraindications), the fruit will be a great help in losing weight, boosting immunity and health of the organism as a whole.
