Grapefruit Seed Extract

Grapefruit Seed Extract
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Dose: Refer to label instructions
In one study, grapefruit seed extract improved IBS symptoms in 20% of people taking the liquid, while all of the patients taking capsules noted definite improvement of constipation, flatulence, abdominal discomfort, and night rest. (more)
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Dose: Refer to label instructions  

A preliminary trial investigated the effectiveness of grapefruit seed extract in people with eczema and symptoms of IBS.1 Participants received either 2 drops of a 0.5% oral solution of grapefruit seed extract twice daily or 150 mg of encapsulated grapefruit seed extract three times daily. After a month, IBS symptoms had improved in 20% of those taking the liquid, while all of the patients taking capsules noted definite improvement of constipation, flatulence, abdominal discomfort, and night rest. These results need confirmation in double-blind trials.

  • Orally. Adults, mix 5-15 drops of NutriBiotic GSE in a glass of water or juice (5 oz. or more), 1-3 times daily, with or without meals. Children (5 years and older), mix 1-3 drops in a glass of water or juice, 1-2 times daily. Or, use as directed by a healthcare professional. Do not use full strength in mouth.
  • Throat Gargle. Stir 3 drops of NutriBiotic GSE into a small glass of water (3 oz. or more). Gargle several times. Use as often as needed. Always dilute.

External Use: (Never use full strength)

With hands still wet, apply 2-3 drops of NutriBiotic GSE to fingertips and gently massage facial area with circular motions. Rinse thoroughly with cool water and pat dry. A tingling sensation may follow. This is an indication of the deep cleansing properties of NutriBiotic GSE. Always dilute.
