Grapefruit Seed Extract Powder
- Powerful Antioxidant
- Prevent Contagious Diseases
- Fights Gastrointestinal Disorders
Grapefruit Seed Extract abbreviated to GSE, is a supplement which is known for its ability to act as an antioxidant. The seed of a grapefruit has components that make it up at a molecular level, including flavonoids (the chief source of the antioxidant properties that Grapefruit Seed Extract has), sources of Vitamin C and E, limonoids, sterols, citric acid, and various minerals. Flavonoids are particularly useful here because they are able to neutralize free radicals that roam throughout the body doing harm to healthy cells.
GSE came to prominence as a supplement during the eighties, when the existence of Proanthocyanidins became known to scientists and nutritionists. There are special types of flavonoids that are of significant use to the body because of their properties as antioxidants. This extract was first created by Jacob Harish, a German physicist and researcher who was using it in order to stop the growth of mold on various vegetables and fruits via organic means, rather than using inorganic compounds and chemicals. Not only has it been found useful for these means, it is now utilized by farmers in order to stop mold from becoming prevalent on machinery and tools. It is even used by makeup manufacturers to keep their products well preserved.

Grapefruit Seed Extract Powder Solubility

Most find it preferable to take grapefruit seed extract in capsule form as this will get rid of any possibility of experiencing the bitter taste of Grapefruit Seed Extract. However, to make it more acceptable for the taste buds, this powder may be mixed with fruit juices. While there is not much chance of this powder losing its potency fast, it is still best to make sure to store it in an area that is free from light, heat, or moisture; elements which may cause supplements to lose their potency.
