Nature's Way Grapefruit Seed

Grapefruit Seed is rich in free-radical eliminating antioxidants called bioflavonoids that support intestinal health and protect against intestinal parasites. One of these bioflavonoids called hesperidin is well-known for its abilities to stimulate and boost immune system functions. Studies on Grapefruit Seed suggest its effectiveness against numerous disease-causing microorganisms.

  • Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) exhibits cleansing benefits for the intestines. Based from scientific studies, experts claim that the bitter substance in Grapefruit Seed has broad spectrum anti-pathogenic effects that protect against the most common intestinal parasites. They also suggest that GSE may enhance the effectiveness of anti-parasitic medications for the treatment of intestinal parasitic infections caused by ancylostoma duodenale entamoeba histolytica, enterobius vermicularis, giardia lamblia, and necator americanus.
  • Because it is high in bioflavonoids (plant antioxidants), Grapefruit Seed is suggested to help prevent the formation of stomach ulcers related to alcoholism and stress. It appears that GSE help reduce the production of tissue damaging free radicals and the increased antioxidant activities helped in healing existing ulcers faster. Scientists also attributed the presence of bioflavonoids, limonoids, and naringenin in Grapeseed Extract may offer the same protection from aspirin-induced gastric ulcers.
  • Grapefruit Seed Extract demonstrated protection against elevated blood sugar levels in animal studies. In a study conducted on diabetic rats, GSE was able to reduce blood sugar levels, reduce harmful LDL cholesterol, and increase beneficial HDL cholesterol. These mechanisms are all beneficial for diabetic management and prevention of cardiovascular complications of diabetes mellitus. The scientists concluded that this is possibly due to high levels of flavonoids and cardiac glycoside in Grapefruit Seed Extract.


Grapefruit seed is the seed of the grapefruit (Citrus x paradisi), a subtropical fruit that originated in Barbados. It is a round, dimpled, citrus fruit that is said to be a crossbreed between a pomelo and the sweet orange. The fruit is called grapefruit for the way they cluster like grapes in the trees. The seed produces Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) in liquid form that is rich in broad spectrum active ingredients that support digestive health, antioxidant protection, cholesterol balance, cardiovascular health, and diabetes management.

The health benefits of Grapefruit are due to the presence of a powerful class of plant antioxidants called bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids exhibit very powerful free radical scavenging activities that it is able to help prevent the formation of gastric ulcers related to alcohol use and chronic stress. Grapefruit seed is also well-known for its intestinal benefits through its natural anti-pathogenic properties. These bioflavonoids together with cardiac glycoside can aid in maintaining blood sugar levels within normal range to prevent symptoms of diabetes and the progression of diabetic complications.
