Grape Seed Extract against Raynaud’s

Q. I suffered from Raynaud’s disease for many years. My doctor suggested I take grape seed extract tablets.

I take two a day. They are not expensive and can be purchased at any health store. Best of all, they have no harmful side effects. My Raynaud’s has completely disappeared!

A. Raynaud’s disease is a painful circulatory condition in which fingers turn blue or white with cold. Grape seed has been used to treat a variety of circulatory complaints. This is the first time we have heard that it might be beneficial for Raynaud’s.

Some readers report success with the Chinese herb astragalus, cinnamon or ginkgo. Anyone taking the blood thinner Coumadin (warfarin) should probably avoid such natural approaches for fear of bleeding.
