    Re: Grape Seed Extract

    Grapefruit Seed Extract mainly acts as a defense system booster. Has plenty of amino acids and bioflavonoids.

    Re: Grape Seed Extract

    Grape Seed extract is a powerful antioxidant and might inhibit abnormal cell growth. Grapefruit Seed extract has antibacterial/antifungal properties and thus may help with infections, yeast problems, etc. (Always dilute the liquid.)

    Re: Grape Seed Extract

    He's correct, GrapeSeed acts as a defense system booster. Has plenty of amino acids and bioflavonoids.
    The best Grapeseed is the one by Nature's Bounty. CVS, WallGreens and the Supermarkets sell it. Thats what I use. It has 50MG of GrapeSeed.
    It also contains 15MCG of Selenium. It also has green tea and Bilberry in it
    Walmart sells it to. Its under the Spring Valley logo. It says Spring Valley, but Nature's Bounty makes it for them.

    Re: Grape Seed Extract

    I just bought a bottle of Grape seed extract at GNC. I've been reading and hearing about it's benefits to the capilliary systems and other wonderful benefits against cancers (as an antioxidant).

    Is this better than Green Tea extract? Should I take both or one of them is redundant?

    Re: Grape Seed Extract

    Take them both as i do, also the flavanoids are different in each one (EGCG and Catechins in tea and Anthocyanidins in grape seed). We are now finding out that the purple foods and herbs are the best for longevity and anti aging so along with lots of blueberries, grapes and black beans (all high in anthocyanidins) i take resveratrol caplets (red wine).

    As for resveratrol....Jean Calmont who was the longest living person on earth at 122 was asked about her longevity and sound mind to what was her secret the only thing that stood out was since at 15 she had a glass of red wine at dinner all her life and also in the labs resveratrol was and/or is the only compound on earth so far to express the ''Sirtuin 1'' longevity gene in the DNA .....

    Re: Grape Seed Extract

    6 foot 3, you are so right about resveratrol.
    This is one of the best vitamins.
    I dont think many people are familiar with it.
    A doctor in Italy did a study of it and showed how resveratrol slowed down the aging process.
    I get the Nature's way resveratrol.
    Soloray also makes a good resveratrol.

    Re: Grape Seed Extract

    Dan....Thanks for posting about other companies producing Resveratrol as it was hard to find even up to 6 to 7 months ago. I get Longevinex and cost about 35.00 a month (u.s.) I was reading on MIT Technology Review magazine a special article about the Biotech companies working on this Elixer,Sirtris and Geron and how they're getting ready for human trials on this so exciting stuff. Again their research shows that only 2 things on the earth activates the SIRT-1 gene and thats ''Calorie Restriction and Polyphenols'' i.e. Red Wine (resveratrol) Green Tea, Pomegranates, Olive Oil and Grape Seed and Blueberries..Interesting ..........
