Grapefruit Seed Extract Uses

The following information was previously provided to Whole Approach by the manufacturers of ProSeed Grapefruit Seed Extract. Though we loyally supported their product for many years, it was discontinued and we have replaced it with Nutribiotic Liquid. This is an excellent product by a company with high quality standards.
