safetyGrapefruit is known to interfere with the absorption of many medications and is associated with drug interactions, such as rapid heart rate, respiratory distress or stomach bleeding. This is due to the presence of a class of compounds called furanocoumarins, which inhibit the P450 enzymes necessary to metabolize many kinds of pharmaceutical drugs. This can lead to a decreased absorption of the medication and its benefits, or high levels of the drug remaining in the bloodstream because it cannot be broken down. In addition, note that grapefruit is toxic to cats, dogs and horses.
