More Than 100 Groups Support ABC-AHP-NCNPR Botanical Adulterants Program

The herb skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora), has been used as a mild sedative for more than a century, but, in the early 1980s, it became erroneously implicated as a possible source of liver toxicity, likely due to adulteration with or substitution of American germander (Teucrium canadense).

The third feature in the series is The Adulteration of Commercial "Grapefruit Seed Extract" with Synthetic Antimicrobial and Disinfectant Compounds, written by John H. Cardellina II , PhD, and published in HerbalGram #94. A popular ingredient in natural products, grapefruit seed extract (GFSE) has appeared in cosmetics and dermatological preparations as well as dietary supplements. The article reviews 10 published analytical studies published in international journals demonstrating that samples of GFSE were adulterated with various synthetic chemicals, including the disinfectant triclosan. The article concludes that a significant amount of GFSE is adulterated, or at least was at the time the 10 analyses occurred over a 20-year period, and that GFES's promoted antimicrobi
