Salvestrols at Work
What do Salvestrols do?
Cells in the body use Salvestrols to help correct
themselves when things go wrong. They are like the cell's own police force
helping to ensure the cell functions correctly. The sorts of situations where
the body would normally use Salvestrols are those in which the body for some
reason turns on itself and which generally cause inflammation. There seems to
be some relationship between the increase in the incidence of these
"modern day" conditions over the past 100 years and the gradual
diminution in the presence of Salvestrols in the diet. Antioxidants strive to
protect our cells from DNA damage but are ineffective once the damage is done.
Salvestrols work beyond antioxidants by eliminating the damaged cells, and only
the damaged cells. Since we all have damaged cells in our bodies, taking Salvestrols
helps us heal ourselves before a sufficient accumulation can make us sick.
The scientists who discovered Salvestrols have surmised
that the gene which expresses the enzyme that uses the Salvestrols first
appeared around 150 million years ago. So the body has been using this
protective mechanism since human life evolved, but we are now depriving it of
these essential nutrients as a result of our eating habits and the modern
methods of food production.
In fact, the body finds Salvestrols so important that they
escape the first attempts of the liver to remove them from the body — a process
known as first-pass metabolism. This need for the body to hold on to these
compounds for as long as possible caused the scientists who discovered them to
call them Salvestrols from the latin word salve (to save).
How safe are Salvestrols?
Because Salvestrols were so prevalent in our diet
historically they are very safe. But the scientists who discovered Salvestrols
have performed many safety tests — not on animals, but in human cell lines, and
they have identified that the body needs a minimal level of Salvestrols to
enable it to perform correctly.
Research suggests that Salvestrols are produced by plants
in response to fungal infection, and are therefore most present at the sites
where fungi are likely to attack. In fruits, this means on the skin, as the
fruit is ripening. Salvestrol compounds are also present on the surfaces of the
roots of many plants, as the roots are continually under threat from fungi in
It is estimated that we consume today about 10-20% of the
Salvestrols which would have occurred in the diet 100 years ago. So, even
though we are being urged to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables, unless you
eat organic you are unlikely to get sufficient Salvestrols from your diet.
The levels of Salvestrols in a typical "5 portion a
day" basket of non-organic fruit and vegetables from a supermarket have
been measured and found to contain only 10% of the estimated daily dietary
requirement. So eating adequate amounts of commercially available fruit and
vegetables will not provide the essential nutrients the body needs. Even an
organic diet may be inadequate since the varieties of fruit and vegetable
commercially available may be types that are low in Salvestrols.
It can be difficult to find food that is high in
salvestrols. Different salvestrols are found in varying concentrations and
levels of biological activity in fruits like strawberries, oranges, grapes and
even cocoa. There are over 550 varieties of oranges, over 200 varieties of
strawberries and grapes, and 450 varieties of cocoa bean! All with different
levels of Salvestrols, and each with different levels of biological activity.
Examining other likely sources of Salvestrols in the
western diet, such as fruit juices, other beverages and processed foods,
Salvestrols were again found to be largely absent. In the case of some fruit
juices where they should have been present, for example in cranberry juice, it
was discovered that the Salvestrols were removed during processing in order to
make the product taste sweeter, as most Salvestrols have a sharp or bitter
So, it is currently very difficult to get an adequate
intake of Salvestrols without taking a supplement but researchers are working
with farmers and agronomists to establish growing conditions that can ensure
high levels of Salvestrols in crops. They are also producing a directory of
organic foods rich in salvestrols so that people can balance their intake of
Salvestrols through a combination of diet and supplementation. In the meantime,
Professor Potter has developed a Red and Green Diet which may be helpful to
design an organic diet naturally rich in Salvestrols.
bout the Salvestrol points system
Salvestrols are the product of innovative research from UK scientists who first identified, isolated and formulated the product. Since the beginning of the millennium they have dedicatedly screened thousands of varieties of fruits and vegetables to identify the richest food sources of salvestrols and have from this research developed this information for you.
Salvestrols are recently discovered, plant based nutrients – phytonutrients - which appear to be one of the most important components present in fresh fruit and vegetables and may be responsible for the some of the major health benefits provided by these food sources. But, Salvestrols are normally present at such low levels in the modern diet that until now scientists had thought them to be insignificant to contribute to good health.
Salvestrols have been described by Professor Dan Burke as “The most significant breakthrough in nutrition since the discovery of vitamins.” And the research team who first discovered Salvestrols and identified them as essential to our wellbeing have now gained a detailed understanding of how the body uses these compounds.
Keeping it simple with the Salvestrol points system
Research shows that the modern day consumption of salvestrols is down by over 80% compared to as little as a century ago. So, based on current research we have set out a points guide to simplify how you can measure your daily intake of salvestrols and attempt to get it back to the levels which were typically consumed by previous generations.
Data indicates that the typical pre-Victorian and Victorian diet consisted of no less than 12mg of Salvestrols (the researchers have designated this as 100 points) whereas the modern diet only approximates to 2mg-at most. Therefore the following formulations have been put together as an inspiration for you in your quest to increase the Salvestrol content of your diet. We are by no means suggesting a specific rigid dietary plan and you should always consult your doctor before making any significant changes to your diet. Consideration must be given to ensuring you maintain a diet that is rich in all the essential nutrients that make up a healthy balanced diet.
Minimum Recommended Daily Salvestrol Intake: 100 points
The recommended daily intake is based on a continuing screening of different varieties of fruits and vegetables. The daily intake for a healthy person should be a minimum of 100 points which will bring you back up to the sorts of minimum levels which were consumed a century or so ago.
But, don’t worry if you consume well over 100 points a day, for example, by taking a salvestrol capsules and eating organic salvestrol richest meals. It’s a bit like eating three oranges, or a mixture of three fruits each containing over 60mg of vitamin C in a day-that’s the equivalent of over 300% of the recommended amount of vitamin C that EU nutritionists consider suitable. No-one would consider not eating those fruits because of such a low artificially created recommended amount, and like these types of vitamins, a higher dose of salvestrols, even at significantly fortified levels is perfectly safe to maintain wellbeing.
However, some people have been shown to require much higher doses of Salvestrols dependent upon their nutritional status. If you have not consulted a practitioner and received advice on your nutritional status we would recommend you do this before using the recommendations outlined below in order that you can be properly evaluated regarding the dose of Salvestrols you should be taking.
The following chart will help give you an indication of what sort of dose you should be taking based upon our most recent research. This does not include data relating to the first range of products which were introduced and if you are taking Fruit Force, Salvestrol Professional and Salvestrol Gold please continue to take the dose you have always been taking since this is likely to be the dose which is most suitable for you based upon your most recent consultation with your practitioner. If in doubt please contact your practitioner to discuss the situation further.
