    I started taking grapeseed after you raved about it and when I saw the new dr he asked how I heard of it, and I told him this message board and he said it's really good for me. He did Muscle response testing and a lot of stuff prescibed by other drs (VALTREX!) was NOT good for me even some of the supplements were NOT good(DHEA, The grapeseed is good for me and I am taking it twice a day and I will increase that in a few weeks.. Thanks again!

    I bought some grape seed extract and when I got home I found that it also contains Resveratrol--a substance found in red wine. And, I never knew if that is a good thing or not, so I haven't taken it.

    Any ideas anyone?

    "Resveratrol is produced naturally by several plants when under attack by bacteria or fungi."

    I think that would be good for us. I just started GSE this past weekend. I have to say, so far so good. I haven't had to wake up with a stuffy nose and no sinus in the day.

    I also added Olive leaf extract about 2 weeks ago.
    Never sure how long each item takes for benefit so I try to give it 2 weeks. I definately feel better.

    Thank you for the compliment--it's just a cheesy Glamour Shots pic.

    I sure appreciate your persistance with the grapeseed extract. Sometimes I hear so much about things that might help from so many, I tend to tune it out to avoid being overwhelmed.

    Where does everyone buy Grape Seed extract? Can you get it at Walgreens or Wal-Mart? Is it a capsule or liquid and how much do you start with.

    I have edema in my feet and ankles and my doctor has put me on Lasix. I don't think it is really working that well so I thought I can try the Grape seed. Sure can't hurt to try it.

    Thanks

    bought liquid GSE which is grapefruit seed extract. Now I just have to remember to take it. Maybe it will help.

    I couldn't find any grape seed extract.

    Hi Tee

    If you are taking meds you need to check grapefruit seed extract’s possible interaction with them; it can make many meds more potent. Some concerns have also been raised that its effectiveness means it can knock out beneficial bacteria in the gut, so probiotics or live yoghurt are needed too, but taken at a different time of the day.

    I’ve used grapefruit seed extract in the past but only for short periods of time

    Now, how can grapefruit seed extract be an antiviral while grape seed extract is an antioxidant? Hmmmm? Weird!

    I will try to look online for liquid grapeseed extract. It's such a drag that i can't take pills anymore.

    I started it on Friday. I'm not sure how much to take. I weigh 125lbs. I am taking 200mg is that enough? How long should I stay at that dose? Help! Oh, by the way my nose is not stuffy for the first time in a long time. YEA!!!

    I don't have edema.

    Can you tell me what other ailments are helped by this, other than a general immune system builder?

    I thought I had seen that seasonal allergies are helped?

    If anyone can report benefits, I would appreciate it...this is a rough time of year w/ allergy symptoms for me....as well as other cfs symptoms.

    On the advice of Jaminhealth I purchased a bottle of grapeseed extract.

    I took the first bottle and thought that it really didn't help, but..... when I got to the end of the bottle and didn't purchase another I realized the "snuffles" came back. Just a little bit of allergy. I then realized that very quietly the GSE had alleviated the allergy symptoms I have had for a long time, but didn't realize it until I had gone off of the GSE. Needless to say I will be getting another bottle and not running out this time.

    Thanks Jamminhealth!!!

    I just want to make sure I am understanding this right. Is Grape Seed Extract the same as Grapefruit Seed Extract? I was getting exciting about trying it and then saw the note about grapefruit seed. I think grapefruit seed can interact with my seizure medicine. So, would this be safe for someone who has epilepsy and takes Keppra?

    Thanks for your advice!
