Benefits

According to The Analyst, an online diagnostic resource, grapefruit seed extract is a powerful natural antibiotic, antiviral and antifungal treatment. Grapefruit seed extract can be used to treat bacteria, yeast, some viral infections and parasitic infections. However, though alternative medicine proponents touts its benefits, a study in 2001 by chemist G. Takeoka found that many grapefruit seed extract products also contained preservatives and other disinfectant ingredients. As a matter of fact, the grapefruit seed extract solution that had no other ingredients showed no antimicrobial benefit.


According to the National Center of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, grape seed extract is often used to help treat conditions of the heart, such as atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, poor circulation and high cholesterol. Grape seed extract may also be helpful in treating diabetes and vision problems. In addition, the National Cancer Institute is currently studying whether grape seed extract prevents or treats cancer.

To use grapefruit seed extract internally to treat chronic infections, take it three times a day, but don't exceed 1500 milligrams.
