Metabolic food-drug interactions occur when the consumption of a particular food modulates the activity of a drug-metabolising enzyme system, resulting in an alteration of the pharmacokinetics of drugs metabolised by that system. A number of these interactions have been reported. Foods that contain complex mixtures of phytochemicals, such as fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices and teas, have the greatest potential to induce or inhibit the activity of drug-metabolising enzymes, although dietary… CONTINUE READING
