How Grapefruit Seed Extract Works

Grapefruit seed extract is a widely researched extract derived from Citrus paradisi, a bitter citrus. Grapefruit seed extract has been demonstrated in clinical research to support healthy immune function and a healthy gastrointestinal tract by providing potent antioxidants and a unique profile of bioflavonoids, notably hesperidin, naringin, and naringenin.t1,2 Hesperidin has been studied for its effect on balancing and nourishing the gastrointestinal tract and microbiome in humans.t3,4 It is known to have antioxidant properties and promote healthy inflammatory markers.t5,6 Hesperidin has been widely studied for its support of healthy endothelial function and its ability to support healthy blood pressure levels already in the normal range.t7,8 The bioflavonoid naringin is found in high concentrations in grapefruit seed extract. Naringin has been shown to support cardiovascular health, bone health, cognitive function, and healthy metabolism.t9,10,11 It also has powerful antioxidant properties to support immune health and promotes healthy inflammatory markers.t12,13 Naringenins main function in the body is as an antioxidant, whereby it helps to promote healthy oxidative stress responses by stopping free radical reactions.t14 This process includes the molecules superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase, which gives naringenin its powerful health benefits.t15,16

Why We Love this Grapefruit Seed Extract product

There are several reasons why we love this Grapefruit Seed Extract product, but we will highlight the top two.
First, grapefruit seed extract, the ingredient, has been shown in research to be an effective broad-spectrum antimicrobial that can have impact on several different microbes. This can be useful against microbes like candida (or other forms of yeast), bacterial overgrowth and has even been shown to have inhibitory effects on certain viruses.
Second, this Grapefruit Seed Extract product has been tested thoroughly to confirm that it does not contain any dangerous contaminants. You will commonly read about grapefruit seed extract as being a potentially dangerous ingredient because it can be contaminated with triclosan, benzethonium chloride and benzalkonium chloride. Our Grapefruit Seed Extract has been tested over and over to confirm it is free from these contaminants.
