Does anyone know if I am doing the right thing giving my wife strong anti oxidants as she has Primary Bilary Cirrhosis? They include grape seed extract and maritime pine bark

Please check with her doctor before starting or stopping any type of medication or supplement - prescription or non-prescription. If there are risks involved, it could be dangerous.
