Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) is a broad spectrum, non-toxic and environmentally safe, antimicrobial product. Its made, only from the seeds and pulp of grapefruit.
In test tubes and petri dishes, GSE, has undergone hundreds of laboratory tests, which demonstrate its ability to kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi and viruses.
For many years, Herbalists and Naturopaths have used GSE as a replacement for antibiotics and antiseptics. Most importantly, there are no side effects and it is dramatically less expensive than existing treatments.
Grapefruit is naturally bitter because of the bioflavonoid concentrate it contains, and its this bitterness, that is the main source of antioxidants. To combat the bitterness, we mix concentrated Grapefruit seed extract with vegetable glycerine and purified water. A lot more palatable.
Besides Vitamin C and E, it also contains Sterol’s, Limonoids, Citric Acid and trace minerals, all in their natural forms. Its all of these, that contribute to its fungi, virus and bacteria fighting properties.
