What is Citricidal?
Citricidal is a standardised extract of grapefruit. It is a non-toxic, non-metallic, and environmentally safe organic antimicrobial compound. The liquid extract comes from ground grapefruit seeds and was discovered about 30 years ago by a Yugoslavian physicist.
Citricidal is an extremely potent and effective alternative to the toxic and environmentally harmful chemicals used in a diverse spectrum of both consumer and commercial applications.
Citricidal is currently used in international markets as a sanitizing and disinfectant agent, as a fungicide, antibacterial, antiparasitic, antiviral and preservative in food and cosmetics.
Citricidal has been tested in accordance with the techniques specified in the Regulations for the Enforcement of the Federal Hazardous Substances Act (Code of Federal Regulations, Title 16 Chapter 11, 1976).
Based on these results, Citricidal is classified as non-toxic by oral ingestion and isn’t skin irritant or corrosive material.
Doctors with a focus on Natural medicines are discovering the benefits from prescribing the grapefruit seed extract to their patients who suffer from various intestinal problems. Dr. L Galland of New York says "In the treatment of Candidacies, it (NutriBiotic) appears as effective as many of the other prescription antiprotozoal drugs. These drugs are generally so toxic that they cannot be administered for prolonged periods of time, whereas NutriBiotic can be administered for weeks or months; prolonged treatment is essential for the cure of chronic protozoan infection."
Type of Flavonone Bioflavanoid.
Health Benefits of Hesperidin
Hesperidin prevents infection from and suppresses some Viruses: Herpes Simplex Type I Virus
These Substances Enhance the Function of Hesperidin
Hesperidin is a Glycoside of Citrin.
Grapefruit Extracts have Hesperidin
Also known as: Flavanones
Group of Bioflavonoids.
Flavonones are often colorless. The "4" carbon position of Flavonones possesses an Oxygen atom. Removing the double-bond between carbons "2" and "3" of the Flavone structure produces a Flavonone.
Type of Flavonone Bioflavonoid that is composed of Glycosides of several other Flavonones.

Soluble Polysaccharides composed primarily of "uronic acids" such as Galacturonic Acid.
Health Benefits of Pectins
Pectins lower total serum Cholesterol levels by binding to and causing the excretion of Cholesterol.
Pectins help to suppress the Appetite (by delaying the emptying of the Stomach).
Pectins bind to Bile Acids in the Small Intestine and facilitate their elimination from the body.
