Can nutritional enhancers interact with prescription medications?


Yes, nutritional enhancers can interact with prescription medications. Some nutritional supplements and foods contain compounds that can interfere with the absorption, metabolism, or effectiveness of prescription medications.

For example, grapefruit juice can interfere with the way certain medications are metabolized, leading to higher levels of the medication in the body than intended, which can increase the risk of side effects. St. John's wort, a popular herbal supplement used to treat depression, can also interact with many prescription medications, including antidepressants, birth control pills, and blood thinners.
