  • Your intestines are an important part of your digestive system‚ but you probably don’t give them much thought when they’re working properly. However‚ when diarrhea‚ gas‚ and stomach pain occur‚ they become all you can think about. If you have frequent intestinal issues‚ the balance of bacteria in your GI tract may be the problem. Everyone has both “good” and “bad” bacteria in their intestines: normally‚ the good bacteria keep the bad bacteria in check‚ preventing an overgrowth of the latter. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)‚ Crohn’s disease‚ and the flu‚ or any other conditions that cause diarrhea are among the factors that can throw off the bacterial balance in your intestines; this can cause a chain reaction where the excess of bad flora continue to spur diarrhea‚ and vice versa.

    Pure Encapsulations’ Grapefruit Seed Extract may help restore a healthy bacterial balance in your intestines. Grapefruit seed extract combats bacteria and fungus‚ allowing the good bacteria in your intestines the chance to multiply. Once the balance of bacteria is restored in your intestines‚ your symptoms of diarrhea‚ gas‚ and stomach pain should lessen drastically. If they continue‚ see your doctor‚ because there may be another cause for them.

    This supplement provides you with 250 mg of natural grapefruit seed extract in order to fight bad intestinal bacteria. It also contains vitamin C in the form of ascorbyl palmitate due to its antioxidant properties and ability to help the intestines absorb iron.

    One bottle of Grapefruit Seed Extract by Pure Encapsulations contains 120 vegetable capsules‚ and will last you from one to four months‚ depending on your dosage. The recommended dosage is one to four capsules daily‚ divided into equal doses with meals and taken with a glass of water.

    Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypo-allergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women. At this time‚ there are no known side effects or precautions. Consult your physician for more information.

Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
The capacity for grapefruit seed extract to produce drug interactions remains unknown. Like all botanical products‚ grapefruit seed extract is a complex material with numerous phytochemicals that remain largely uncharacterized with respect to drug pharmacokinetics. Human studies have established that two furanocoumarins‚ bergamottin and 6‚7-dihydroxybergamottin (DHB)‚ are primarily responsible for drug interactions with grapefruit juice. An 8-ounce glass of grapefruit juice contains typically contains 1-2 mg bergamottin and 2-3 mg DHB.

HPLC analysis revealed less than 0.1 mg/g bergamottin and 2.99 mg/g DHB in Pure Encapsulations grapefruit seed extract. The effective dose range for the seed in promoting microbial balance is 250-1‚000 mg‚ which yields 0.75-2.99 mg DHB and less than 0.025-0.1 mg bergamottin per day. Therefore‚ 4 capsules of our seed extract falls below the range associated with bergamottin-mediated events‚ but is within the range of DHBassociated drug interactions. The negligible bergamottin suggests this extract does not recapitulate completely the negative effects of grapefruit juice and should be regarded as a distinct seed material. Consult your physician for more information.

    Standardized Grapefruit Extract

    I have taken liquid GSE for years to control outbreaks of Candida. My ND recommended taking this form because it is standardized and each cap contains a set amount. Ive been using it for several months. I find that the liquid has a faster impact on my symptoms at this point however I think this form is good for maintenance.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
