Caprylic acid may be contra-indicated with NSAID's (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and certain blood thinning medications. Bromelain may be contra-indicated with blood thinning medications and certain antibiotics. The capacity for grapefruit seed extract to produce drug interactions remains unknown. Human pharmacokinetic studies have that established that two furanocoumarins, bergamottin and 6,7-dihydroxybergamottin (DHB), are primarily responsible for drug interactions with grapefruit juice. HPLC analysis has revealed no detectable bergamottin in Pure Encapsulations grapefruit seed extract. DHB is present at a concentration of 3 ppm, providing <1 mcg DHB per 6 capsules of A.C. Formula II. This is <0.1% of the DHB dose obtained from a single 8-oz glass of grapefruit juice. Furthermore, the DHB content of our grapefruit seed extract is below that detected in the furanocoumarin-free grapefruit juices used as negative controls in studies. Like all botanical products, grapefruit seed extract is a complex material with numerous phytochemicals that remain largely uncharacterized with respect to drug pharmacokinetics. However, the absence of bergamottin and low concentrations of DHB in the seed are consistent with a chemical composition distinct from the pulp and juice. Our findings indicate that Pure Encapsulations grapefruit seed extract is exempt from bergamottin mediated interactions and carries a low likelihood of DHB-mediated interactions.
