Works For Me Wednesday: Grapefruit Seed Extract

Pin It Now! Since I am right in the middle of battling a cold/sore throat, I thought I would take a moment to share a wonderful, natural product that I use instead of antibiotics.

For a couple of years now, I have been using Grapefruit Seed Extract for the whole family. Mostly I use it when someone is sick, but I have used it as a preventative also. I have even added a few drops to water and used it as a multi-purpose cleaner. After doing quite a bit if research, I have found many other uses for it, too. Here, is where you can take a moment to read about Grapefruit Seed Extract.

The actual brand that I buy is NutriBiotic The Original GSE Liquid Concentrate.
This link will take you to the home page. It is easy to spot this stuff in a white bottle with a red cap. I buy it at my local health food store, and a 4 FL. OZ. bottle costs around $20.00. It lasts a long time, though. I have had the same bottle for over a year. It just takes a few drops, and there are about 4000 drops per bottle. We take ours in a little bit of orange juice instead of water since the taste is quite horrible!!!

I just found out that Elijah Wood uses this product as well. Now I really feel special!!

Anyway, I make sure that we never run out of this amazing formula--it has definitely worked for us!

I went to the store just the other day to get some GSE for my pesky sinus infection. The 'Help' talked me into getting Oregano Oil instead. I have been really impressed with the Oregano Oil. I have tried just about everything out there for sinus crud and this was the first time something over the counter/herbal really offered some relief.

I like using Airbornne and was so excited to see a generic form of it at the store the other day.

You asked how it comes. The Oregano Oil comes in a capsule form. You can see the oil and air bubble thru the shell. I swear that with an hour of taking my first dose, I felt the crud breaking up almost like when you breathe menthol vapors.

I still plan to try the GSE. Maybe as a preventative? Do you think it might help prevent all the winter crud going around?

Have you tried Elderberry Syrup? That stuff is amazing too and it tastes really good!

I have been using this for about a year now - and now EVERY single time I feel a sore throat or stuffy nose coming on, I dilute a little in water and use as a gargle and for irrigating my sinuses. I have not had a bad cold or sore throat since beginning this amazing stuff.
I even use a drop in my dog's water.... ;-)

It's AWESOME and whenever I travel on planes - this stuff comes along in my purse!

Does anyone know where the video is of Elijah endorsing it? I saw it once before....but cannot find it anywhere now.
