Q I am wondering if grape seed extract supplement should be standardized to 95% polyphenols I notice that many herbal products do not seem to be standardized Thanks for your time and your newsletter is right on

A Since there are no long term human studies with grape seed extract, it is anybody's guess as to the ideal extract potency Also, there are few herbs that have been studied in an accepted standardized form Little is known as to whether a certain standardized extract is better than the whole herb or a different extract potency With all these uncertainties, no definite guidelines can be given

A This is interesting What brands were they, was it only grape seed extract or combined with other herbs?

Q I have been taking grape seed extract on and off for several months, and really believe it has helped very stubborn warts I have on a finger and a thumb However, when I get frequent side effects such as digestive problems like reflux, sour stomach, bloatedness, I quit taking it thinking these symptoms are grape seed extract side effects I really don't know that it does cause it, could be stress I have been under I would like to take the grape seed extract supplement for 3 months regularly and am sure I would see results about the warts Have you had any reports of grape seed extract supplement causing digestive disturbances? I take Vitamin Shoppe100 mg (one a day) which contains no other herbs, etc I do enjoy your website, newsletters, etc so much and fully rely on them rather than any other one

A We are not aware of long term human studies with grape seed extract supplements Thus far we have not had reports of grape seed extract side effects, but we cannot rule out that this grape seed extract supplement may cause gastrointestinal symptoms Much is still unknown about the benefits and side effects of long term use of various herbs and herbal extracts

Q I've been taking it for years, it has gotten rid of my facial brown spots, most wrinkles, my hair shines, etc I am 50 years old but I look 35!

A I have not seen any long term studies with grapeseed extract supplements to know whether whether this product would be effective and safe for long term use in vast numbers of people and whether it has anti-aging potential

I have a question about grape seed extract and have bought some in the liquid form which I add as drops to water I would appreciate to know how many drops of, say, 33% GSE are equivalent to one tablet of your GSE 100 mg product Do you have any opinion about whether to use diluted drops or tablets? Drops would seem to offer more flexibility of dosage strength, particularly for external use

We have no idea of the quality and potency of the liquid form, and how it was manufactured, to know the equivalencies between the oral form and the liquid form

Someone said to me that extracts have no oil But if they come from a seed, like grape seed, or olive, grapefruit seed or whatever, you can make oil from the seeds, right? And, you can make extract, right? So would the extract have oil in it?

It depends on the process of extraction and manufacturing, but some extracts could have oil in them, for instance pumpkin seed oil extract
