Grape seed extract is promoted as an antidote to the ‘side effects’ of pterostilbene, but the side effects are not described, nor is the dose of grape seed extract provided.
This article (and many others) states “there are not any known side effects of this supplement”. Not sure why anyone would want to take anything as an “antidote” to side effects for an item that itself has no side effects.
The information regarding taking Grape Seed Extract under “Cons” at the top of the article is obviously incorrect, as there are no “adverse effects” of Pterostilbene.
Doing a Google search on “Grape Seed Extract and Pterostilbene” brings up numerous articles explaining how Pterostilbene, Resveratrol, and Grape Seed Extract are all found in grapes, and have each been proven to have effective anticancer properties.
Grape Seed Extract is an additional supplement used to provide additional benefits to the Pterostilbene, and has been reported by those who have used it to be effective in treating the following ailments –
Joint and muscle pain
Pain relief associated with varicose veins
Reduction of allergy symptoms
But Grape Seed Extract is simply NOT used to “mitigate adverse effects” in any way, as there are no “adverse effects” related to Pterostilbene (and it has been tested in quite large quantities of up to 3gms/day in mice with no adverse effects whatsoever). The statement itself at the top of the article is in error and should be deleted, or revised to reflect the additional benefits for which the Grape Seed Extract is being provided for.
Here’s a link to a list of articles on Grape Seed Extract, Resveratrol, and Pterostilbene, a combination a number of companies market for their anti-cancer, anti-oxidant, anti-aging properties (note that not one of these articles says any of these items has any “side effects” at all, or is needed to mitigate any side effect, since there are none in any of these items) – http://bit.ly/29hZPNw
