I love GSE. I take it instead of Pycnogenol/pine bark for vascular health (much cheaper, by everything I’ve read essentially the same active compounds, and tons of animal and human published studies with GSE). The main problem with GSE is potential for concentration of pesticides from non-organic grapes when extracted. The only organic GSE I’ve been able to find is from Pure Synergy. it’s more expensive than other GSEs, but it’s still cheaper than Pycnogenol and you get way more proanthocyanidins for your buck IMO.

Love that last study showing outright reversal and even disappearance(!!) of carotid plaques with only 200mg of GSE per day.
