While pomegranate juice can interfere with ACE inhibitors, grapefruit juice has been known to interfere with statins.

The British Heart Foundation says: “If you’re taking simvastatin or atorvastatin, avoid grapefruit and grapefruit juice as they can increase your risk of side effects.

“If you take another type of statin, limit your intake of grapefruit juice to very small quantities or you may want to avoid it all together.”

As a result, it is recommended to avoid grapefruit juice while taking statins.
