# 4 Grapefruit Seed Extract: Updated 1/13/2008

Grapefruit Seed Extract not grape seed is the product. First time I went to buy it , store clerks kept showing me grape seed , which is not the same stuff.

I came across this product a few years back . It has lived up to everything that was written about it . It is bitter tasting , a bitterness like a mix of lemon, lime and grapefruit. Used internally I mix it with plain water. ( 1/8 cup ). While I use it straight with-out diluting on toe nails , its too strong for the skin , unless mixed with a bit of extra virgin olive oil.

Product is listed as "broad spectrum antimicrobial" and from my experiences in using it , it actually works . Queasy stomach, brown toe-nail, skin torn by a rose bush thorn, scratchy throat out comes the GSE . Will also make " unsafe undrinkable water " , into " safe drinkable water ".
( GSE = grapefruit seed extract ) Nutribiotic Inc, is the company that makes the brand of GSE that I use.

Guess this GSE is like the Super Tonic I make and use. A " Universal Remedy " is what GSE is called, and also is what I call the ST ( ST = Super Tonic ) .

Check out " The Healing Power of Grapefruit Seed " by S. Sharamon and Bodo J. Baginski.
ISBN 0 - 914955 - 27 - 6 . Has 150 pages of info on use for people , plants and pets.

I use the liquid, but it also comes in tablet form.

Grapefruit Seed Extract: Efficient DisinfectantAugust 18th, 2004 · 5 CommentsGrapefruit Seed Extract is a powerful disinfectant. It can be used to disinfect wounds, sterilize fruit and vegetables, purify drinking water, sanitize dishes, countertops and cutting boards and inhibit bacteria growth in pools and spas. The active ingredient of grapefruit seed extract is synthesized from the seed and pulp of certified organically grown grapefruit. The process converts the grapefruit bioflavonoids (polyphenolics) into an extremely potent compound that kills Strep, Staph, Salmonella, E. Coli, Candida, Herpes, Influenza, parasites, and fungi.
Research indicates that GSE appears to disrupt the cytoplasm membrane in such a way that the organism is unable to uptake necessary amino acids. While researchers do not yet fully know how GSE works, they do know that it is effective against an overwhelming number of pathogens.
In numerous tests it has shown to have no side effects and is non-toxic to humans and animals. It also environmentally friendly and biodegrades.
It is especially useful for sterilizing baby toys, bottles and clothes because it is non-toxic and harmless to babies. Only the undiluted extract will irritate eyes and skin.
For more information on laboratory studies on Grapefruit Seed Extract (or GSE) see: this Intelihealth page or The Healthing Power of Grapefruit Seed by Shalila Sharamon and Bodo Baginkski. Other books with further information are: Nature’s Antiseptics: Tea Tree Oil and Grapefruit Seed Extract by C.J. Puotinen and The Authoritative Guide to Grapefruit Seed Extract by Allan Sachs.
Abstract of one study can be found here.
Stephen Harrod Buhner, author of Herbal Antibiotics says “The exact manufacturing process [of Grapefruit Seed Extract] is a closely kept secret, and there some (disputed) evidence that the commercial process involves more than a simple extraction procedure. It is unknown whether simple home extraction processes will produce the same efficacy as the commercial extract. The seeds, peel, and leaves may all be used.”
Commercial extracts suitable for disinfection are NutriBiotic� or Citricidal�. These products are available from health food stores.
