FOOD - FOOD INTERACTIONS

We have heard about many types of interactions such as Drug-Drug Interactions, Food-Drug interactions, Herbs-drug Picture1Interactions etc. But Food – Food Interaction is a serious but not much alerted one. Most of these food food interactions are harmless but it is always better to know about some of them.

What is Food-Food interaction.

The unwanted side effects caused inside the human body when two or more types of foods are consumed together. Such reactions can be less important and but on long term, it can be  fatal upon precipitating serious side effects .

Green Tea/Black Tea and Milk

Tea contains flavonoids called catechins, which have many beneficial effects on the heart. When you add milk to tea, then a group of proteins in milk, called caseins, interacted with the tea to reduce the concentration of catechins. So avoid Tea and Milk together.

Milk and Yoghurt Interaction:

As you know consuming both together can precipitate milk inside the stomach that may irritate and induce vomiting. So avoid milk and Yoghurt together.

Chamomile Tea and Garlic

Chamomile contains anticoagulant compounds called coumarins. When combined with Garlic ( that also has anti-clotting properties), they may increase the risk of bleeding . So, better to avoid Chamomile Tea and Garlic together.

Mushrooms and Red yeast rice

Mushrooms are excellent sources of vitamin B3 ( Niacin ) and high Niacin supplements may increase the risk of myopathy if combined with red yeast rice.

Pomegranate juice and grapefruit juice

Pomegranate juice and grapefruit juice, are both known to block the cytochrome P450 3A4 enzyme systems in the intestines and increase blood levels of many medications you are taking. Taking these two juices together may synergize the above action.

Unripe (green) tomatoes/Potatoes and Alcohol

The unripe green tomatoes contain huge amount of solanine which may interact with Alcohol. You may feel more sedation if the intake is more.

The list is not complete. we are collecting similar AFR ( Adverse Food Reaction ) report from many scientists, biotechnologists and some research institutions. As soon as we receive trustful reports, will publish those here. My readers may please inform us about any such experiences that you suspect as Food-Food interaction.
