    Grapefruit Extract Pills

    I found these grapefruit extract pills at the store and I have been taking them for a few weeks now. You eat one before each meal and it is supposed to help burn fat. The original idea is that you eat 1/2 a grapefruit before each meal, but I'm assuming the extract pills do the same job.

    Has anyone had any experiences with these pills or know any hard facts?

    Grapefruit is good for you, nonetheless, so I guess I'll keep popping these suckers.

    The only hard facts I have are these:

    The FDA and Federal Trade Commission have ongoing investigations into the safety and efficacy of diet pills and programs and how they are promoted in advertising. The FDA has banned 111 ingredients in over-the-counter diet products, including amino acids, cellulose, grapefruit extract and kelp. None of these substances has proved effective in weight-loss or appetite suppression.

    GSE is a useful product; it's used by hospitals to sanitize wards, it's quite effective at killing mold and mildew.

    It can help kill bacteria on foods when washing them; in specific concentrations it will even kill Salmonella.

    Re: Grapefruit Extract Pills

    Do you think that since they kill bacteria on foods they could destroy intestinal bacteria and, in turn, be bad for your health/digestive tract?

    Re: Grapefruit Extract Pills

    I honestly don't know - there hasn't been much research on this. I did notice the warnings about eating grapefruit with certain meds is also being given for the GSE.

    Sorry I can't be of more help.
