GRAPEFRUIT SEED EXTRACT SIDE EFFECTS
As long as suggested serving size is adhered to, Grapefruit Seed Extract powder is perfectly safe to use. However, it is possible that this supplement can result in a host of unwanted drug interactions. While most effects will likely be minor, it is always best to talk about this supplement, or any supplement, with a doctor and obtain their opinion on it before use.
Grapefruit Seed Extract and Grape Seed Extract should not be confused. One is derived from actual grapefruit, whereas the other is sourced from red grapes.
Most people find it preferable to take grapefruit seed extract in capsule form, as this will get rid of any bitter taste.
