Any experiences with grapes - good or bad? White or red? Seedless I assume!
I have some grape seed extract at home but have not been using it because I seem to react badly to a breakfast jiuce which contained grape though maybe it was not the grape?
I think I will try it as i've heard it can help but also found this article below would seem to put a lot of weight behind them

Piceatannol, a stilbene present in grapes, attenuates DSS-induced colitis.

Center for Efficacy Assessment and Development of Functional Foods and Drugs, Hallym University, Chuncheon 200-702, Republic of Korea.

Piceatannol (3,5,3',4'-tetrahydroxy-trans-stilbene; PIC) is a polyphenol found in grapes. It is known as a protein kinase inhibitor that modifies multiple cellular targets, exerting immunosuppressive and antitumorigenic activities in several cell lines. The purpose of the present work was to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of PIC on dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced colitis. Experimental colitis was induced in BALB/c mice by dissolving 5% DSS in their drinking water for 7 days. PIC (1, 2.5, 5, or 10 mg/kg body weight) was administrated daily per oral route for 7 days. A significant blunting of weight loss and clinical signs was observed in DSS-exposed, PIC-treated mice when compared to vehicle-treated mice. This was associated with a remarkable amelioration of the disruption of the colonic architecture, a significant reduction in colonic myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, and a decrease in production of inflammatory mediators such as nitric oxide (NO), prostaglandin (PG) E(2), and pro-inflammatory cytokines. The present data indicate that further evaluation of the potential of PIC as an agent for the prevention and/or treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases in human clinical studies is warranted.
