Winter season is the best for citrus - shops are full of tangerines, oranges, lemons, kiwi and grapefruit. Containing many vitamins, these fruits are great to eat right through the winter. There are cases, however, where some fruits are not good for the body - consider what should not be mixed with grapefruit and for what health conditions it is not a good idea to eat it.
Grapefruit is useful because of the huge amount of vitamin C it has, which works very well for the skin and is recommended when carrying out a diet. It is further alleged that it works very well in conditions such as atherosclerosis and hypertension.
You absolutely must forget about grapefruit or the juice of this fruit, if you have stomach problems, ulcers, gastritis, or pancreatitis. Because of its peculiar bitter-sweet flavor, it is not recommended with any stomach problems, since it will most likely irritate the stomach lining and will "unlock" the problem again.
In addition, grapefruit juice slows the liver, it is better to mix it with any medication, and should not be taken if you have any kidney disease. Although it is full of useful substances for the body, it actually has states in which it can seriously harm you.
There is a study that was published in the medical journal of the University of Rochester Medical Center, which proved that mixing grapefruit with 50 different types of medications can be deadly. Among these drugs are some painkillers, contraceptives, antidepressants, anti- allergic medicine, Viagra and any other tablets with the same effect as Viagra.
We can protect ourselves if we are suffering from the above diseases, but if you do not know how to use certain types of drugs with this citrus fruit, hopefully your doctor will inform you that it should not be mixed with them, or at least it should be written on the label of the drug.
