Since you already have Grapefruit Seed Extract Tablets and Capsules, why did you formulate the Grapefruit Seed Extract CapsulesPlus? - The CapsulesPlus are a very different product than the Grapefruit Seed Extract Tablets and Grapefruit Seed Extract Capsules, although there is some overlap. Grapefruit Seed Extract Tablets and Capsules are simply grapefruit seed extract at 125 mg and 250 mg respectively, while CapsulesPlus contain 125 mg of grapefruit seed extract in addition to echinacea and artemisia annua.
I heard that Artemisia, an ingredient in CapsulesPlus, is toxic. Is this true? - The type of Artemisia in our product is a non-toxic member of the Artemisia family. While its cousins mugwort and absinthe can be toxic, the Chinese wormwood is not. This is similar to a comparison between potatoes and deadly nightshade. Both are related (the nightshade family), but potatoes are not poisonous.
