Grapefruit Seed Extract
The liquid extract of grapefruit seed is crafted from an extract with a high proanthocyanadin content, ensuring quality.
Grapefruit seed extract (GSE) is rich in polyphenolic compounds, including quercetin, hesperidin, campherol glycoside, neohesperidin, naringin, apigenin, rutinoside, poncirin, and more. Although the polyphenols themselves are unstable, they undergo a chemical conversion into more stable substances belonging to a diverse category known as quaternary ammonium compounds. Certain quaternary compounds, such as benzethonium chloride and benzalkonium chloride, are industrially used as antimicrobials but are toxic to animal life. Therefore, these compounds are not present in detectable amounts in our GSE. Choline, a B vitamin and another quaternary compound, is nontoxic and essential for maintaining healthy neurological function and fat metabolism.
GSE combines the benefits of grapefruit-derived quaternary compounds, exhibiting broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity without the toxic side effects of chemically derived quaternaries. Independent laboratory testing on "Acute Oral Toxicity" indicates that it would require at least 4,000 times the normal dose of GSE to have a 50% chance of causing poisoning (LD50).
Grapefruit seed extract has been successfully used in both humans and animals to eliminate various types of internal and external infections caused by parasites (single- and multicelled), viruses, bacteria, and fungi. It naturally detoxifies, enhances, and supports the immune system, proving highly effective in numerous applications.
High levels of vitamins C and E, along with bioflavonoids, are present in grapefruit seed extract. These essential substances exhibit antioxidant action, neutralizing free radicals that damage cells and contribute to various illnesses.
