Grapefruit seed extract

Grapefruit seed extract or GSE is also known as citrus seed extract. Grapefruit seed extract is a liquid derived from the seeds, pulp, and white membranes of grapefruit.
Some alternative medicine practitioners have stated that GSE possess antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties.

The extract has been recommended by some nutritionists for the treatment of candidiasis, earache, throat infections, and diarrhea. GSE has been marketed as being a safe, natural, and an effective preservative. Self-made pure GSE processed without solvents is prepared by grinding the grapefruit seed and juiceless pulp, then mixing with glycerin.

A natural antibiotic that is made from grapefruit seed extract is called Citricidal and was developed after the observation was made that something in grapefruit (though not in other citrus fruits) keeps bacteria at bay for extended periods of time. Various research has been done on the antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiparasitic properties of GSE.

Whether or not Grapefruit seed extract will help cure swine flu is questionable. However, it could be helpful as a preventative measure. Care should be taken as grapefruit can have a number of interactions with certain drugs, increasing the potency of many compounds.
