What do you use GSE for?

What a great product. grapefruit seed extract = GSE

reading through the reviews on amazon gives lots of ideas on uses http://www.amazon.com/Nutribiotic-Gse-Liquid-Concentrate-liquid/dp/B000M7OOPS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1320670784&sr=8-1

We use to to wash pesticides off fruits and veggies, sanitizing cutting boards, and general kitchen cleaning.

in the bathroom we use it for teeth brushing (not straight - mixed with tooth powder) and have successfully cleared up two cases of 10+ years toe nail fungus problems that nothing else touched.

Also great for yeast issues - we've used it for both female and pet. Dogs that have yeast ear issues can benefit from diluted daily cleansing as well as a few drops in water bowl.

How do you use GSE?

"Second response" isn't a good way to refer to it, since responses get shuffled around based on upvotes, and sometimes also at random. This answer is referring to the answer by tempomat.

I used it topically after feedings. The bottle says to dilute it, but I didn't. It's kind of nasty tasting, so I didn't bother trying to swab Baby's mouth. He didn't object to the treated nipple.

I've had bad experiences with nearly untreatable thrush in breastfeeding as well, and expect it might be a problem again in the near future. Could you tell me if you used it topically or took it internally, or both, in order to treat the thrush?

I have chronic year round allergies. Do you think its safe to use all year round, for long term use?

I took mine orally for allergies. 8-15 drops in a glass of water. Worked great :)

For cleaning: cutting boards, fruit/veg, etc. and also have diluted and used for little rashes and such - nice antibacterial properties.

The good news is that GSE works as it acts both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. I have personally used it for a sinus infection and oral cleanse and it did a very nice job.

Now the bad news:

GSE works only because the dangerous preservative benzethonium is added. Benzethonium is considered a poison in Switzerland. As you can imagine, they skip this in the ingredients list of the different GSE products, but these products are not medicine so they are not regulated by governments. Many products have been tested by independent labs and only the ones with benzethonium work. Therefore, I would use GSE products only topically, if at all. Please check the following links for more details.

Stuff like this makes you reconsider a lot of "natural" or homeopathic cures. They might work, but at what cost?

GSE cured a nasty bout of breastfeeding thrush I had with my last baby. We tried conventional antifungals, and gentian violet to no avail. By the time we tried GSE I was so cracked and sore I was actually crying out in pain every time he latched. It worked almost immediately.

At second answer, that's BS. Pure GSE blended with vegetable glycerine has been proven to work in clinical studies. The brand most commonly available in the US- Nutribiotic- contains only these 2 ingredients. Take your lame spam-butt elsewhere!

I've heard people use it for allergies. I'm not sure if it's in their own homemade nasal sprays or in the Neti pot. I've been wanting to experiment with it in my own Neti pot but am not sure what the long term effects are.

Whats the origin of using GSE for medicinal or household uses? I'm curious if it's like Ayurvedic, or Traditional Chinese Medicine or something else.
