I don't understand the science behind why certain things like grapefruit juice or pepper make supplements stronger in the body? my doctor warned me about taking either with my medication and now I read that supplements are the same way. it just makes no sense to me.

Both black pepper and grapefruit help absorption. They dont make the supplements stronger but they help you absorb more supplements if that makes sense.

It's simple - they increase absorption.
