The Natural Defence System - restoring natural components to your diet that are lost through modern farming and processing techniques

What are Salvestrols?

Salvestrols are newly discovered micro nutrients that are essential for maintaining balanced human health. The name derives from the Latin word Salvia (for salvage, to save) and is given
to a specifi c group of compounds that are found in abundance in fruit and vegetables, primarily of a deep colour. They produce these compounds to help protect themselves against

A large amount of research and testing has been carried out to determine the best sources of Salvestrols. The most beneficial fruits being certain varieties of Organic Oranges, Blueberries, Blackberries and Grapes.

How can Salvestrols benefit my health?

Cells in the body use Salvestrols to help correct themselves when things go wrong. Salvestrols are like the cell’s own police force helping to ensure the cell functions correctly. The body would normally use Salvestrols as a self protection mechanism when cells are acting abnormally - generally an infl ammation of some sort.

The body has been using this protective mechanism since human life evolved, but unfortunately as a result of poor eating habits and modern day food production we are now depriving the body of essential nutrients for good health.

Why can’t I rely on my diet for Salvestrols?

Agrochemicals: Instinctively we shop with our eyes and because of this our preference is for picture perfect looking fruits with no blemishes or infections. To achieve this producers opt for nonorganic fungicides that prevent the stimulus of fungal (mould) infections. Unfortunately plants need these infections in order to produce a positive Salvestrol reaction.

Taste: The modern palette preference is for sweet tasting fruits. Salvestrols are generally bitter and have therefore been bred out of many fruit species. Levels of Salvestrols are highest in the skin, peel or rind which is nowadays most often discarded as waste matter.

Food Processing & Preparation Techniques: In an ideal world we should all consume locally sourced, raw foods. But modern overcooking techniques have dramatically reduced the levels of Salvestrols we consume.

How do Antioxidants and Salvestrols differ?

Antioxidants strive to protect our cells from DNA damage but are ineffective once the damage is done. Salvestrols work beyond antioxidants by working only in the damaged cells.

How to take Salvestrols?

Because of the associated digestive processes, Salvestrols should be taken with a meal. Please contact your Health Care Practitioner for personalised Salvestrol advice and nutritional plans.

To ensure that we have the highest possible level of Salvestrols in our products we work closely with growers worldwide. For example, we use grapes selected specifi cally from the Okanagan valley organic winery in British Columbia, Canada, where the growing, harvesting and processing is strictly controlled to produce the highest yield of Salvestrols.

Salvestrols - a discovery

Professor Gerry Potter and Anthony Daniels, working in UK universities, first discovered the positive effects of Salvestrols a decade ago. The research is considered so important that around $30 million has so far been invested in order to both establish scientific proof and seek to further understand the ways in which this remarkable cell rescue mechanism can be harnessed to our benefit.
