Can Consumption Of Young Coconut Meat Reduce The Effects Of The Drug?
, if consuming coconut water can reduce the effects of medicine ,, how about young coconut meat … is the effect different from the water ??? Thank you
Hello Mastain, thank you for asking.
Coconut water has a composition of water, protein, carbohydrates, ions, and minerals. Its composition is said to be similar to blood plasma, although of course it is not exactly the same. When compared with the composition of drinking water, coconut water is certainly different. Until now there have not been many studies that discuss drug interactions with coconut water or coconut meat, so the truth cannot yet be proven.
Basically, a drug is a collection of chemicals with different purposes, depending on the class of drug. Taking drugs with liquids other than water, or taking drugs together or close to eating any food, basically certainly has the possibility of drug interactions. However, this depends on the type of medicine and the type of food and drink. Not all types of drugs will have interactions with all types of food drinks. You can try to find out the composition of the drug you are taking, then search online for trusted pages, is there any possibility of drug interactions with certain beverage foods. For information, drug interactions can mean:
Drug effect increases.
Drug effect decreases.
The risk of side effects increases.
Therefore, you should take medicine with water, and give a distance between eating and taking medicine. Hopefully this answer is useful for you. Regards.
