New Roots Grapefruit Seed Extract Liquid
Grapefruit seed extract (GSE) contains mainly polyphenolic compounds, including quercetin, hesperidin, campherol glycoside, neohesperidin, naringin, apigenin, rutinoside, poncirin, etc. The polyphenols themselves are unstable, but are chemically converted into more stable substances that belong to a diverse class of products, called quaternary ammonium compounds. Some quaternary compounds—benzethonium chloride and benzalkonium chloride, for example—are used industrially as antimicrobials, but are toxic to animal life; hence, we don’t find them in detectable amounts in our GSE. The B vitamin choline is also a quaternary compound, but is nontoxic and even essential for maintaining healthy neurological function and fat metabolism.
