I had one viewer tell me that they were taking 300 drops of grapefruit seed extract (GSE) per day. Three hundred drops a day is an awful lot. My question is whether there was any stool testing pre- and post- GSE?
It’s possible to damage your gut if you take too much GSE. I would never keep a patient on 300 drops a day of GSE for more than a few days. Even then, only at their own peril. Even a week is too long.

I never recommend more than 40 to 60 drops per day of GSE. I do have some patients who take “crazy” amounts of GSE who take the high doses because they feel so desperate about their symptoms.
The brand and quality of the GSE impact its effects. Also, your diet and other supplements you are using will influence the impact of GSE.
My main message about GSE is that overly high doses can do more damage than good. Pre and post stool tests are crucial for determining if you are taking too much of a good thing.
