Is Nighttime Grapefruit Bad?

If you consume grapefruit before night, you may encounter some unpleasant side effects

Citrus fruits, particularly grapefruit, are acidic and may cause heartburn, according to WebMD.

Especially if eaten empty. Heartburn worsens at night because food can't fully exit the oesophagus and enter the stomach when laying down, says Livestrong.

Grapefruit before bed causes more than heartburn. Grapefruit inhibits the body's capacity to metabolise and absorb medicines

Grapefruit interacts with cholesterol-lowering, blood-pressure-lowering, and infection-fighting drugs. Your doctor may identify any contraindications.

If none of the above is true, eating grapefruit before bed may help your sleep, reports Epicurious. Grapefruits contain lycopene, which aids sleep.
