GSE Liquid Concentrate Frequently Asked Questions
What is the pH of this product?
The Original GSE Liquid Concentrate has a pH of about 3.8 and the Maximum GSE Liquid Concentrate has a pH of about 2.2, which are both very acidic. This is why we recommend you dilute Grapefruit Seed Extract before use. We do not know if the product becomes alkaline when ingested the way orange juice and other citrus foods do.
What about the "grapefruit juice effect"?
There is a phenomenon known as the "grapefruit juice effect." Two components found in grapefruit juice, naringin and naringenin, inhibit production of an enzyme in the intestinal tract, thus increasing the rate of absorption for certain classes of drugs (including some antihistamines, birth control pills, anti-epilepsy medications, and some antibiotics).
In some instances, as in low dose birth control pills and some uses of antibiotics, this may be a good thing because the net result is "more efficacy, less drug." In other cases, especially for anti-seizure medicines, blood levels have to be monitored and maintained very carefully. You would be well-advised to check with your doctor or pharmacist to see if there is any interaction between your medication and the naringin and naringenin.
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., NutriBiotic began work on development of a variety of forms and dosages of Vitamin C and other nutrients. NutriBiotic 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. NutriBiotic 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.
At NutriBiotic, they 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.
