An important metabolic study

An American study has just been published about some artificial sweeteners. They impact the way the body metabolizes several drugs like antibiotics or antidepressants. Some of these artificial sweeteners would have the ability to disrupt the function of a protein. This would manifest itself in particular in the liver, which helps to eliminate toxins and body medications.

On average, nearlyone out of two French people takes a medicine daily. Despite everything, it is very complicated to follow the instructions for medication to the letter, especially in terms of food. As with these artificial sweeteners, other foods are prohibited due to drug use.

Among the best-known foodsabsolutely do not consume while taking medication, these are grapefruits. This citrus disrupts the absorption ofat least 85 different drugs. An extremely acidic product that can cause more damage than repair after taking medication. There is also dairy products such as yoghurts or cheeses to be limited when taking antibiotics.
