It is ok if I take my grape seed capsule together with my vitamin e and vitamin c capsule?

Ann

Answer:

Dear Ann,

A study of Ward et al. about the effects of coadminstration of vitamin C and grape seed in individuals being treated for hypertension reported a significant interaction between vitamin C and grape seed treatments.

The results suggested caution for hypertensive patients taking vitamin C and grape seed polyphenols.

Vitamin E, flavonoids, linoleic acid, and OPCs are highly concentrated in grape seeds.

Grape Seed Extract is rich in polyphenols, a compound that's high in antioxidants.

Grape Seed oil is one of the richest natural sources of Vitamin E.

Researchers at Johns Hopkins reported in 2004 that use of high-dose vitamin E supplements, in excess of 400 IU (international units), is associated with a higher overall risk of dying.
