This extract, from the seed of the grape, is recommended for many health conditions. It is taken for respiratory and heart problems, diabetes and cancer. It is also used for pancreatitis. It is not to be confused with resveratrol, the extract from the skin of the grape. This award winning company, Paradise herbs, has combined GSE with Amla (also called Indian Gooseberry) a powerful antioxidant. Paradise herbs does not use fillers or magnesium stearate. I buy many of my supplements from Paradise herbs.
Grape Seed Extract (not to be confused with grapefruit seed extract) is said to be very, very high in antioxidants and can help reduce blood pressure and improve circulation, improve kidney function, support brain function, protect the liver, reduce infections, and more. I add a little bit to my dog's food every day just to provide an added boost to her immunity during her senior years. I love that it's sourced from natural food (not synthetic) and contains Amla, which gives extra vitamin C.
I feel better for taking this supplement... I also sprinkle a little on my old dogs food... Gives us both a little boost... Paradise Herbs is my go to brand.. No fillers , always good quality... Ordered 2nd bottle for reserve... Great for immune system...
Pycnogenol is a lot more expensive than GSE and contains almost the same active ingredients. It is Very easy to open the capsules and mix with any food! Contains just GSE and Amla, no unnecessary ingredients. ActiVin Grape Seed Extract with Amla, 90 Vegetarian capsules. So I throw the vegetarian capsules away and use only what is inside the capsules.
Grape Seed Extract is one of the important herbal supplement that has significant role in the body. It becomes more powerful if it contains Amla fruit. However, with Paradise ActiVin GSE with Amla, it needs more time before this significant result comes out. Maybe because it is not more concentrated than the Grape Seed Oil. But in overall experience, I like this product because it is safe and pure grape seed unlike the oil-based that contains other types of oils to make a 500mg capsule. Paradise ActiVin is only 125mg GSE+125mg Amla but the component is pure and Vegan and organic.
What I like about Paradise Herbs is that their capsules are tiny, free from unnecessary fillers, binders, magnesium stearate etc.
The reason one buys nutrients is to enhance their health...
I understand why other manufacturers use magnesium stearate so that their precious equipment is protected but it does no favours to the discerning conscious customer.
Powerful little gems.
