The gastrointestinal tract plays an essential role in overall wellness. It's responsible for digestion‚ the process that allows your body to properly absorb and utilize the nutrients found in the foods you eat. In addition‚ the GI tract also helps remove waste products from the body. Finally‚ your gastrointestinal system also plays a role in promoting immunity.
For GI tract comfort‚ a healthy balance of bacteria and fungi is essential. Otherwise‚ you may experience inconvenient or painful symptoms such as constipation‚ gas‚ bloating‚ irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)‚ or diarrhea. The good news is that grapefruit seed extract may help you feel better.
Grapefruit Seed Extract by Pure Encapsulations is a convenient way to experience the benefits of this fruit‚ without the messy preparation or worrying about whether grapefruits are in season. It can help promote healthy ecology in the gut by supporting an environment hospitable to a variety of microflora and fungi.
This supplement has been standardized to provide 40 percent flavonones and flavones. As a result‚ it may block the formation of potentially harmful intestinal organisms like Giardia lamblia (which can interfere with the absorption of lipids and fat-soluble vitamins); at the same time‚ grapefruit seed extract can maintain existing levels of healthy bacterial flora. Unlike some other grapefruit seed extracts on the market‚ Pure Encapsulatins' Grapefruit Seed Extract Capsules do not contain the contaminant benzethonium chloride.
Take one to four vegetable capsules daily‚ in divided doses. Take it with meals and six to eight ounces of water per serving. At the recommended dosage‚ each 60-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Grapefruit Seed Extract should last from 15 days to two months.

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.
