Grapefruit juice improves drug absorption in cancer patients

Many of you know to avoid grapefruit juice while taking blood medications because it thins the blood.  It also does an enormous amount of good ironically…

Grapefruit is a superfood
Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice is one of the only foods that do not require stomach acid for digestion with its living enzymes delivered directly into your intestines.  It has antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal properties and is the only liquid in the plant kingdom that will break down the same amount of oil.  This is just one of the reasons it should not be taken with blood medications as it literally makes them far more effective.  A grapefruit a day is a preventative against the heart problems that you need blood-thinning drugs for…

This latest study
Researchers at the University of Chicago increased drug uptake with cancer patients by 350% and lowering the necessary doses from 90mg per week to between 25 and 35mg per week.  This could lead to cheaper, lower-dose cancer treatments (being delivered by grapefruit juice) and of course, the real bonus – far less side effects. 

Grapefruit has a miriad of health benefits that I talk alot about in our health mentoring programme.  It is just a stunning superfood and most people will give it away!  The only side effects grapefruit has is that it makes you healthier.
