Strawberry (Fragaria spp.)



Interactions

Strawberry/Drug Interactions:
  • AntibioticsAntibiotics: Based on in vitro studies, strawberry may have antibacterial properties (5; 4).
  • Antineoplastic agentsAntineoplastic agents: Based on in vitro studies, individual compounds in strawberries have demonstrated anticancer activity in several different studies, blocking initiation of carcinogenesis, dose-dependently inducing apoptosis, and suppressing progression and proliferation of tumors (1; 8; 9; 10; 11). Based on in vitro study, strawberry extracts may be cytotoxic against leukemia cells (16).
  • Anticoagulants and antiplateletsAnticoagulants and antiplatelets: Based on in vitro studies, strawberry may have antiplatelet properties (6; 7).
  • Iron saltsIron salts: Based on a study of parous women, strawberry (Fragaria spp.) may have a mild to moderate enhancing effect on iron absorption (2).
  • Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents (NSAIDs)Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents (NSAIDs): Based on an in vitro study, strawberry extracts may inhibit COX enzymes (1).
  • Oral drugsOral drugs: Based on in vitro studies, strawberry extract may inhibit intestinal P-glycoprotein-related functionality and interfere with gastrointestinal absorption of drugs (44; 45).
  • SalicylatesSalicylates: Based on tests performed in allergic patients, there may be a connection between acetylsalicylic acid intolerance and strawberry sensitivity (31).

Strawberry/Herb/Supplement Interactions:

  • Anti-inflammatory herbsAnti-inflammatory herbs: Based on in vitro study, strawberry extracts may inhibit COX enzymes (1).
  • AntioxidantsAntioxidants: Based on human, animal, and laboratory studies, strawberry may have antioxidant properties (40; 41; 42; 10; 43; 13).
  • IronIron: Based on a study of parous women, strawberry (Fragaria spp.) may have a mild to moderate enhancing effect on iron absorption (2).
  • Oral herbsOral herbs: Based on in vitro studies, strawberry extract may inhibit intestinal P-glycoprotein-related functionality and interfere with gastrointestinal absorption of herbs (44; 45).
  • Salicylate containing herbsSalicylate containing herbs: Based on tests performed in allergic patients, there may be a connection between acetylsalicylic acid intolerance and strawberry sensitivity (31).
