We have been using this for a long time, and have managed to avoid all sorts of viruses, colds and flu's. Treated as soon as you feel the 'scratchy throat', prevents the virus from going onto the chest, and the first symptoms of a cold only last a day and then it's gone.
Fantastic for food poisoning - even when it is well on and the patient is in delerium, alternating hot sweats and cold fevers, vomiting and cannot retain or take fluids.
Noticeable recovery within half an hour.
I recommend that you purchase a book about grapefruit seed extract in order to use it to its fullest, and to learn the dosage.
Will never ever have any antibiotics again.

A natural remedy to disinfect on the inside and outside - should in my opinion be in every household. A real treasure that nature gives to us for our health. I never want to be without grapefruit seed extract. It is very useful to have the books relevant to the use: The Miracle in the core of the grapefruit and Healing with grapefruit seed extract."

I always avoided salads, ice creams and cooked food that wasn't piping hot on holiday and yet I was always ill. Then myself and friends were extremely ill in Turkey in 1994. The following year I was going to Cairo and was very apprehensive, but I read an article on Citricidal so I bought some from Higher Nature and took it every morning and I was one of only 3/15 who wasn't ill. I have taken it every day on every holiday since then to a variety of places such as Egypt, India, Tunisia and Morocco and I haven't been ill since. My advice is down it in a small amount of liquid each morning as a preventative - don't wait until you are ill. It doesn't taste nice, but it's worth it.

CITRICIDAL Grapefruit See Extract. My wife and I have been using this extract extremely successfully for approximately 15 years, ever since I read about it in the book "The Miracle at the Heart of Grapefruit" (literal translation of "Das Wunder im Kern der Grapefruit"). I haven't come across a better home remedy. In my opinion the discovery of this ingredient is worthy of the Nobel prize.

I have used this product for years and find it very effective as a mouth wash and so many other things.
