Grape Seed Oil


Is anyone taking Grape Seed Oil? Here is 1tbsp of grape seed oil compared to 1tbsp of olive oil
Grape Seed Oil:
Polyunsaturated Fats- 9.50g
Omega "6"- 9.47g
Vitmain "E"- 3.92mg

Olive Oil:
Polyunsaturated Fats- 1.50g
Omega "6"- 1.07g
Vitamin "E"- 1.61mg

Is this a better alternative to Olive Oil?


Absolutely not.

There is no reason to increase polyunsaturated intake and greatly increase omega-6 intake.

If you want more vitamin E, eat soaked sunflower seeds or eat more eggs.
