Grape Seed Extract is derived from the small seeds (and sometimes the skins) of red grapes, they are actually the same grapes pressed to make wine. Grape seed extract is high in the flavonoids oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC). It has been shown to remain in the body for as long as 72 hours, and is also 20 times stronger than Vitamin C, and 50 times more potent than Vitamin E.
Grape Seed Extract is standardised to 95% oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC). OPC is claimed to be one of the most important natural products to be discovered in the last several years.
Grape Seed Extract is recommended for anyone taking part in physical activity and looking to increase antioxidant intake.

If you believe the research on Grape Seed Extract, it is one of the most powerful antioxidants available. 1/4 teaspoon of this should provide far greater protection than e.g. 5g of Superfood XS. And it goes a lot further. It is, if you like, a 'Super antioxidant'. That's the good news. Here comes the sting in the tail. This is the worst-tasting supplement on this, or any other website. In any galaxy within 9000000000000 light years. And I reckon I've tried most of them. Don't say I didn't warn you! The solution... Put a shot of water in the bottom of a glass tumbler. Drop 1/4 teaspoon of this on the surface of the water. It will float, do not stir it in. The trick is to throw it straight down your throat in one movement, without it touching the sides of your mouth. It can be done, and once you've perfected it, you'll manage it almost every time. Personally, I lubricate my gob first with a bit of flax oil. This might also aid absorption. Have some water at hand to wash down any residual taste and you're sorted. Of course, you could just buy capsules elsewhere, but you'll get half the amount for twice the money. Your choice, punter...Goes Well With:Romantic literature. Cucumber sandwiches. Are you kidding? Just swallow it and stop whining!
I don't know why people are complaining about the taste of this Grape Seed Extract. On it's own or with water its not nice, but simply put a 1/4 teaspoon or a bit more if desired in a homemade smoothie and you can't even taste it!
"I use 2.5 g per day split into 2 doses as detailed above when training (4 times per week) not taking any on my non training days. Overall my sex drive, stamina and recovery have rocketed due to the anti -estrogenic effects provided by the dose I am taking. Having researched Grape Seed Extract there is currently no reccommende maximum dose. However, I have yet to experince any negative side effects."
I got a pound of this stuff and I am considering throwing it out. This stuff taste absolutely horrible. If they want to sell this stuff they would have to mix it with something. They could start with some anti-nausea medication like Ginger root. I thought for sure I was going throw-up for a half hour after taking it. My mouth was also watering like a dog's with mouth disease. They need to mix this stuff with something to make it more palatable.Goes Well With:Nothing
I can't rate effectiveness... I read the reviews but thought it couldn't be that bad...! Silly me!...Omg that really tastes like hell! I won't be able to carry on with it :(
I just bought this Grape Seed Extract due to its amazing health properties. I had read the reviews here, but considering myself fairly hardy to bad tastes having necked many foul tasting supplements before this I considered it a challenge and made a shot of water with a half teaspoon of this stuff mixed in. I swilled it around for a bit. Then realising how naive I had been, I quickly downed the shot to get it over with. This is most vile tasting stuff on God's green Earth. For something so natural it tastes wholly unnatural. I'd rather neck a shot of creosote if it offered the same health benefits. I had to suppress my gag reflex for 5 minutes to keep it down. Health wise, it's great stuff.
I know this Grape Seed Extract tastes gross but the benefits are great. What I do is add boiling water to around 100g porridge oats, stirring continuously and leave to for a couple minutes. I then add 50g of strawberry protein powder, 1/4 teaspoon of grape seed extract, sometimes 1 teaspoon of superfood xs, stir it all in with 1 or 2 teaspoons of honey and 2 or 3 teaspoons of peanut butter.
"It's hard to say if this product had helped me in any way I would notice though this is known to be a powerful anti-oxidant, said to reduce oxidative stress on the body etc, which is all good. Personally, if I am honest, I'd much prefer to buy this product (with the horrid taste) sold in caps as capping this powder for myself can get quite messy and consuming this power as it is, can be quite difficult for its gross taste."
"My top tip is to get a shot glass, fill with liquid, measure and tap it onto the surface of the liquid - it floats - and then knock it back like a shot. It's 99% taste free once you smack it back. This is an excellent antioxidant but the taste might hold some back from gaining the amazing benefits."
"I started using an approximative dosage comprised between 800 mg and 1200 mg of grape seed extract 1 month ago mixed in 300 ml of slightly warm water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. I had a voricose problem on my right calf after 1 month I have no more pain and it is lmost impossible to notice teh vein. And it can seem weird, but I recover much better since I take this extract. I also take some white and green tea extract everday, but I could definetely feel an improvement from taking this additional extract. But tastes yakkkkkk ! ! !"
Had this for week now, been drinking 3 teaspoons if it a day with orange juice, has a cinnamon like texture but no real taste. So far I haven't felt any difference at all and quite frankly I'm still not sure what it is supposed to do. Goes Well With:Fresh orange juice
"I appreciate it is said to be one of the best antioxidants, but it tastes so horrid I had to bin it in the end after many attempts to persevere. Tried to mix it with water in a shot glass and have all at once, still felt sick in the stomach after that. Would definitely buy it again, but only and exceptionally if it is sold in capsules as it was simply unbearable to consume as is - so bitter and binding as if the tongue is tyred up in a knot."
