Why would I want to use the Liquid Concentrate? - As a natural, non-toxic compound our Liquid Concentrate has many uses. Internally, the concentrate is useful as a supportive treatment for a wide variety of ailments, including Candida infections, sore throats, intestinal upset, etc.
How can the product be non-toxic if it is so potent? - Extensive testing done at independent laboratories and universities around the world has proven the concentrate to be safe for human consumption. It is effective against pathogens because it belongs to a family of compounds known as quaternary compounds. This family is best known for benzylkonium chloride and benzylthonium chloride as well as the infamous Quaternium group, a very toxic antimicrobial preservative used in the cosmetics industry. While Grapefruit Extract is molecularly similar to these compounds, there are some profound differences in structure and function. Studies done to date indicate that there is little danger in either short-term or long-term internal use.
What is the pH of this product? - The concentrate is about a 2.2, very acidic. This is why we recommend that you dilute it before use. We do not know if the product becomes alkaline when ingested the way orange juice and other citrus foods do.
Is this product safe for use with children?
Yes. The extract is frequently used in pediatric medicine in applications such as diaper rash, ear infections, abrasions, etc. Common sense will indicate using a very dilute solution on an infant.
What about using it for my pets? - Since the concentrate is safe for consumption, it is well suited for animal uses. The extract can be added to the animals water or food.
What about the "grapefruit juice effect"? - There is a phenomenon known as the "grapefruit juice effect". Two components found in grapefruit juice, naringin and naringenin**, inhibit production of an enzyme in the intestinal tract, thus increasing the rate of absorption for certain classes of drugs (including some antihistamines, birth control pills, anti-epilepsy medications and some antibiotics.)
In some instances, as in low dose birth control pills and some uses of antibiotics, this could be a good thing because the net result is "more efficacy, less drug". In other cases, especially for anti-seizure medicines, blood levels have to be monitored and maintained very carefully. The customer would be well-advised to check with his doctor or pharmacist to see if there is any interaction between his medication and the naringin and naringenin**.
**NOTE: Nutribiotic grapefruit extract contains only 0.1% of these compounds.
Is there anything I cant use the concentrate for? - We do not recommend using it in your eyes, even in a dilute form . We also advise users to dilute the extract before use. If you place a drop of the product on your tongue, it will burn. Sensitive skin areas also will end up with an unpleasant irritation if the concentrate is used full-strength.

Shipping Issues, Delays, Lost Parcels etc.
At MandiMart we pride ourselves on our same-day dispatch and fast delivery. We are constantly on the lookout for ways to improve our delivery service and avoid delays for our customers.
It is your responsibility as the customer to ensure you have entered the correct shipping address. When you place an order, you will be sent a confirmation email confirming your order details. Your address and the product details are included in the order details; this is your opportunity to correct any possible mistakes with your order. If you become aware of errors with your order, please make us aware at the earliest possible time by sending an email to MandiMartLimited@gmail.com. We will endeavour to alter your order before it is dispatched. Unfortunately, if your order has already been packed and labelled at our warehouse, we cannot affect it in any way. We cannot be held responsible for any issues that arise due to the incorrect information you have provided.
While we try our absolute best to minimise any shipping errors, we are only human. In the event we have sent you the wrong product, we believe that we have caused enough inconvenience through our mistake, and as a result of this we will dispatch the correct product to you at the next available opportunity, irrespective of whether or not you have returned the incorrect product at that moment. However, we do ask that you return the incorrect product promptly, but at your leisure. Failure to return the incorrect products will incur an invoice and subsequently debt collection as required.
If you have not received your order after the expected delivery guideline has passed, please contact your local post/delivery office, and quote your tracking number to them. In 90+% of cases a ‘failed delivery attempt’ has been made but the postman didn’t leave a card to let you know this. If the parcel is indeed at the local delivery office you will be able to re-arrange delivery or collection of your parcel via an online portal on the carrier’s website, or by contacting the local delivery office directly.
Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee delivery or the time/date that our carrier will plan to make the delivery – this is out of our control. If you parcel is delayed or lost you can rest assured that we will do everything in our power to help you trace your lost parcel. This will include following up tracking numbers and contacting carriers for further clarification if the tracking information is not explicit. MandiMart cannot accept responsibility for delays or losses caused by carriers until the ‘claims waiting time’ has expired. Until this has happened the only message we will receive from carriers is to wait. After this time, we are more than happy to begin a complaint/claim against the carrier for the delay/loss of your parcel.
If you have entered a ‘SafePlace’ for your parcel to be left (i.e. when you are not present to accept the delivery) and the carrier states that they have left the parcel in the specified ‘SafePlace’, then MandiMart cannot be held responsible for any losses that you have experienced through using the ‘SafePlace’ service.
We understand that your supplement requirements are subject to change and, as such, you may occasionally need to return unused/no longer prescribed products. We offer a ‘no contest’ return policy if the product is in reasonable expiry date, in its original condition, unopened with the security seal still in place and the return is initiated within 90 days of the order being placed. If it has been longer than 90 days, send an email and we will decide this on a case-by-case basis.
We will process a refund once we have received the returned product, and inspected its condition. MandiMart accepts no responsibility for returns that are lost or damaged en route to our address. For this reason, we strongly recommend using a tracked/registered service and ensuring the products are adequately protected, as required.
MandiMart cannot accept opened, unsealed products for return in any situation other than a (possible) manufacturing defect. In this situation we require the product to be returned to us and then we will converse with our supplier/manufacturer as to whether a manufacturing defect is present in the product. This could include returning the product to our supplier/manufacturer. If a manufacturing defect is present then you will be issued a new product replacement or a refund, whichever you should prefer. Please note that the return shipping is to be paid by customer and only on discovery of a manufacturing defect will this be refunded. If there is no manufacturing defect present you will not be refunded nor will a replacement be sent to you.
While we continually strive for perfection, we are only human and mistakes will happen from time to time. If we have mistakenly sent you the wrong product, we are more than happy to cover the cost of returning this wrong product to us. We believe that you have been inconvenienced enough through no fault of your own, and as such should not have to pay for the return, or wait until the initial product is returned before the correct product is dispatched. We will immediately dispatch the correct product for you, with no regard to whether we have received your product return. However, in the instance that you have ordered the wrong product or no longer require the product you have ordered, we would expect you to fund the return yourself.
