Health Notes

Grapefruit Seed Extract

Grapefruit Seed Extract
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Dose: Refer to label instructions
In one study, grapefruit seed extract improved IBS symptoms in 20% of people taking the liquid, while all of the patients taking capsules noted definite improvement of constipation, flatulence, abdominal discomfort, and night rest.(more)
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Dose: Refer to label instructions

A preliminary trial investigated the effectiveness of grapefruit seed extract in people with eczema and symptoms of IBS.1 Participants received either 2 drops of a 0.5% oral solution of grapefruit seed extract twice daily or 150 mg of encapsulated grapefruit seed extract three times daily. After a month, IBS symptoms had improved in 20% of those taking the liquid, while all of the patients taking capsules noted definite improvement of constipation, flatulence, abdominal discomfort, and night rest. These results need confirmation in double-blind trials.

      Comments about Nutiva® Chia Seed - Black:

      I have always been a big fan of chia seed. I have used it in fruit bars and health bars before. Now I add a tbsp to my total lean shakes in the morning and it works great. It gives some substance to the liquid shake and also helps curb my appetite. I am a big fan of this product.

                I mix 1T with my morning and evening protien blend to add more protien and Fiber. It has a pleasant taste. The texture may be difficult for some. It is like a tiny seed inside a small gelatin ball after soaking. I love the almost effortless way to get my daily fiber within gas and bloating,

                  Chia is an odd tasting seed that once wet swells to several times its dry size. The seed according to some reports are high in nutritional value. I will continue to add chia seeds to my daily meals.
