Does/can KT interfere with the absorption of antibiotics?From: Colleen Allen <email@example.com>
The destruction of certain antibiotics are accelerated by the increased acid content in the stomach from acidic foods. Of course Kombucha falls under that category too. So it would be a good idea to take your antibiotic a couple hours before, or a couple hours after eating or drinking acidic food.
The information source for the following is: The Drug and Food Interaction [NMSU College of Agriculture & Home Economics] Guide E-507 by Alice Jane Hendley, Diet and Health Specialist.
EFFECTS OF FOODS AND NUTRIENTS ON DRUGS
If you take antibiotics be careful with acidic foods such as caffeine, tomatoes, fruit juices. Acidic foods can increase destruction of the antibiotic in the stomach.
