There's no way to know for sure until you try it. I would be willing to bet money that it will!

Liquid EPO is commonly available. There is some grape seed oil available, but I don't know if you get the same amount of active ingredient. I buy mine from vitacost.com.

I buy Olympian Labs EPO. It is a gelcap that you can cut open and squeeze out the gel into applesauce, juice, etc.

yes, gelcaps is what i was trying to say that i saw at whole foods (I wasn't sure you could open them). The store has its own brand of EPO for $4.99. will it work as good as the pricey ones? The other brands ran up to $34.

Thank you!

my boy is 3 years old and weighs 37 lbs. how do you figure out the dosage?

Now what does GSE really do to their bodies? I'm a little confused with this one.

oh and i read that one of these help with eczema, which one was it? My family all have it on our arms, would this relieve it?

Sorry for all the questions :D

My son weighs 40 lbs. Our Dan when my son was about 35 lbs prescribed a supplement called GLA 240, which was 240mg's. A 1/2 tsp dose of Health from the Sun Primose Gold gives about 225mg of GLA. Therefore, we give him 1/2 tsp per day.

Grape Seed Extract is the same effect as pine bark (pycogenol) at about 1/3 the cost. For focus and attention. Works best (for us anyway) in combo with the EPO.

as far as what brands to use, just use what you are comfortable with and fits within your budget :wink:

Just read through this entire thread, and I already have another window open to order the EPO and GSE. My question is - how to you get a kid who can't take pills and won't eat anything like applesauce to take the GSE? I assume some of you are breaking open the capsules and putting the grainy stuff inside in food. What foods have you had success with?

i started giving my son 1/2 a gel capsule (1 capsule=1300mg) of EPO
and 1 capsule (50mg) of GSE.. i havent seen much of a difference its been about 4 days..does it take more time, or should i be giving him more? maybe it just doesnt work for him. :(
