Ginseng

Dr Bets, net ' n verdere vraag oor ginseng. As dit die lewer ensieme verhoog en die pil se werking aantas, het dit dan nie dieselfde uitwerking met byvoorbeeld cholesterol medikasie en antibiotika ook nie. My man drink elke dag ' n vitamien pil met ginseng saam met sy cholesterol pille (en antibiotika as hy siek is). Dankie vir die hulp.

Hallo Anonymous
Die pil se opname is baie meer sensitief as sommige ander pille, omdat ons die minimum dosis gebruik. Ginseng kan wel die opname en effektiwiteit van ander medikasie beinvloed - hier is 'n lys:
"blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), MAO inhibitors (e.g., furazolidone, moclobemide, phenelzine, procarbazine, selegiline, linezolid), antipsychotic drugs (e.g., phenothiazines such as chlorpromazine), other stimulants including caffeine-containing products (e.g., coffee, cola), corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone), anti-diabetic medicines, "water pills" (diuretics such as bumetanide, ethacrynic acid, furosemide). Check all nonprescription medicine labels carefully, especially appetite suppressants and cough-and-cold preparations, since many may contain stimulants (e.g., phenylpropanolamine, pseudoephedrine). Consult your pharmacist.
