Nutribiotic - High Potency Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) 125 mg. - 90 Capsules
NutriBiotic GSE CapsulesPlus contain Citricidal (grapefruit seed extract), a natural quaternary compound synthesized from the seed and pulp of certified organically grown grapefruit. The process converts grapefruit bioflavonoids (polyphenolics) into an extremely potent compound that has been proven highly effective in numerous applications. This unique formulation combines Citricidal, echinacea, and artemisia annua and is used by healthcare professionals worldwide as nutritional support for individuals with certain health concerns.
GSE CapsulesPlus are used internally to support a wide variety of ailments. The product is easy to swallow and eliminates the problem of bitter or unpleasant taste. Each capsule is equal to 12-13 drops of GSE Liquid Concentrate.
How can the product be non-toxic if it is so potent?
Extensive testing done at independent laboratories and universities around the world has proven the concentrate to be safe for human consumption. It is effective against pathogens because it belongs to a family of compounds known as quaternary compounds. This family is best known for benzylkonium chloride and benzylthonium chloride as well as the infamous Quaternium group, a very toxic antimicrobial preservative used in the cosmetics industry. While Grapefruit Seed Extract is molecularly similar to these compounds, there are some profound differences in structure and function. Studies done to date indicate that there is little danger in either short-term or long-term internal use.
What about using it for my pets?
Since the concentrate is safe for consumption, it is well suited for animal uses. The capsules can be added to the animal's food.
I heard that Artemisia, an ingredient in CapsulesPlus, is toxic. Is this true?
The type of Artemisia in our product is a non-toxic member of the Artemisia family. While its cousins mugwort and absinthe can be toxic, the Chinese wormwood is not. This is similar to a comparison between potatoes and deadly nightshade. Both are related (the nightshade family), but potatoes are not poisonous.
Since you already have the Grapefruit Seed Extract Tablets and Capsules, why did you formulate the Grapefruit Seed Extract CapsulesPlus? Don’t the Grapefruit Seed Extract Tablets and Capsules work?
The CapsulesPlus are a very different product than the Grapefruit Seed Extract Tablets and Capsules, although there is some overlap. With the addition of Echinacea and the Artemisia in CapsulesPlus, the effects of the Grapefruit Seed Extract are greatly enhanced.
The NutriBiotic Story
In 1980, after nearly ten years in the nutritional supplement industry, NutriBiotic was founded based on the principle that everyone deserves good health. Inspired by the research and recommendations of the world's only two-time Nobel Laureate, Linus Pauling, Ph.D., they began work on development of a variety of forms and dosages of Vitamin C and other nutrients. They felt that the public should have the best possible variety of the best possible nutrients at the best possible price, and their initial successes with their family of products showed that you thought so too.
Soon after NutriBiotic began filling the need for quality nutritional supplements, they found another need - the need for high quality, nutrient dense protein in a hypoallergenic form for the chemical and food sensitive individual. Their Rice Protein powder meets that need without soy, milk, egg, wheat or yeast.
In 1987 NutriBiotic pioneered the process and use of grapefruit seed extract. You will find the fruits of their labors in their range of products containing Citricidal, including their skin cleansers, shower gel and bubble bath, dental gel, deodorant stick, foot powder, multi-purpose liquid concentrate, CapsulesPlus, and more.
The folks at NutriBiotic stand committed to providing the very best for you and your family and are pleased to be able to offer you an ever-expanding range of quality nutritional supplements and personal care formulas developed with the intent of protecting and enhancing your health.
