No To Juice

How do you take your medicine for allergy? Do you take it with water or juice? Experts advise to take it water because flavonoinds in the juices block the drug from entering the bloodstream. Scientists have discovered that juice from apples, oranges or grapefruit can reduce the body's absorption of fexofenadine, an anti-histamine, making it less effective. Next time you have an allergy, take your meds with water for best results.

Definitely water! It's the only way to go. I'm getting more healthy as I get older, and my kids are benefiting!

Great piece of advice. Personally, I had never heard that before. It just goes to show that we never get too old to learn. Well done.

Happy trails.

Thanks for sharing that. Good thing I don't really drink juice when taking meds. Yay for water~ :D

I normally do take meds with water, but it is good to know that juice has a negative affect on their potency. Is there a time frame before or after that juice can be consumed?
