For those who have doubts about
the potential toxicity of GSE...
I'm an herbalist and a nutritionist, I'm working on a pre-workout/sexual enhancement formula. One month ago, I decided to purchase some GSE, in order to test the benefits of proanthocyanidins in my formula, along with some potential synergies with some other herbs. I have bought my product from Nutricargo, since they are among the few U.S. companies who accept to ship to Canada.
I conducted my first series of tests with very small doses, as usual. In a short period of time, I became very sick with nausea, heavy abdominal pain and diarrhea. Of course, I immediately stopped using GSE in my formula and the problem gradually disappeared, but my intestine was damaged in the process. I will need several weeks to completely heal my wounds, since fortunately, I know what to do in such a situation.
As you may expect, I have sent a message to my (former) supplier in order to prevent this from happening to anyone else. No answer. The product is still advertised and available on their website.
The biggest part of the salaries given to the employees at Health Canada and the FDA come from pharmaceutical companies, to force the promotion of the poisons they produce, so they would probably all be very happy to learn about
my misfortune, considering that GSE is a "natural" unapproved product.
Everybody's got to learn sometime...
