    Hello folks,

    I looked at the back of my grapefruit seed extract and it mentions it contains a chemical called citricidal. This is created by a biochem company.

    I read up more on it and it appears that this is a potentially toxic substance and wanted to share with you some information about the chemical.

    Here are some warnings about how toxic pure citricidal is:

    Here is some information from the drug manufacturers about citricidal:

    and another article:

    What do you guys think, something to be worried about? I sorta want to chuck this stuff across the room right now!

    This is one of the antifungals I rotate (i’m currently taking it at the moment in fact), I would be very interested in what others thought?

    Are you going to bin yours Raster?

    I rotate this too, this is what I get the skin rash from on my face everytime I take it. Maybe my body was telling me it’s not really that good for me. Maybe too powerful.

    I think this is one of those substances that everyone has to make up their own mind about taking or not. I found this quote:

    “Citricidal® is synthesized from the polyphenolic compounds found in grapefruit seed and pulp. Numerous reactions are involved, including distillation, catalytic conversion, and ammoniation.
    Every batch of Citricidal is tested and certified free from chemical and heavy metal contamination. And in an attempt to further improve the product, a source of grapefruit seed and pulp from Certified Organically Grown grapefruits has been secured.
    To further show the safety of Citricidal, an Acute Oral Toxicity Study was performed(see Northview Pacific Labs Report No. X5E015G, dated 7/6/95). Results showed that Citricidal is considered non-toxic by oral ingestion with an LD50 of over 5000 mg/kg of live body weight. This is the equivalent of a 200 lb. person drinking close to 1 lb. of pure Citricidal daily for two weeks, before risking a 50% risk of fatal poisoning. (There are close to 20,000 drops in one pound of Citricidal liquid. The recommended adult dose is 5-6 drops at a time.)
    According to the Association of Poison Control Centers, the AMA Physician Reporting System, and the Journal of Emergency Medicine, there have been no reports that Citricidal has ever harmed anyone. In fact, there are thousands of clinical and anecdotal reports that Citricidal has helped many, and enjoys a safety record going back more than 30 years.”

    Raster,
    Citricidal isn’t the problem. Citricidal is in fact the first name of GSE. I know the issue of contamination of GSE since long time but I can not post it here in this forum because people first reaction is to judge me as the forum enemy. The problem with GSE is it is contaminated or mixed with BENZETHONIUM CHLORIDE, a chimical that is very dangerous for health.

    If I bring this information to the forum, I am seen as the protocol enemy.
    GSE also enhances some drugs absorption and slows the liver P450 detox pathway.

    Jorge.

    Ive known this for some time and there are lots of studies showing that it may be the contaminates killing pathogens etc and not the grapefruit. I finnally did chuck my bottle. I bet there might be a pure form but how do we know who makes it?
