Salvestrols – Help to Mobilise the Body’s Cancer Defence System
How They Work
Salvestrols cannot be made in the body. They have to be supplied through our diet and, to date, herbalists have identified Salvestrols in many organic fruits, vegetables and herbs.
Salvestrols Target Diseased Cells
The main feature of Salvestols is that they target a specific enzyme called CYP1B1(pronounced “sip one, bee one”) found only in diseased cells of the human body. When the Salvestrols are metabolized by CYP1B1 it starts a series of processes that result in the death of the diseased cell (known as ‘apoptosis’ or programmed cell death). Healthy cells, containing no CYP1B1, remain and the diseased cells die.
Beyond Antioxidant Protection
Salvestrols act as a natural rescue mechanism, ensuring our cells function correctly. Antioxidants strive to protect our cells from DNA damage but are ineffective once the damage is done. Salvestrols actively eliminate damaged cells, helping us heal before sufficient accumulation can make us sick. In fact the body finds Salvestrols so important they escape what’s called ‘first pass metabolism’, or the first attempts of the liver to remove them from the body. Observing how the body sought to retain these compounds, the scientists who discovered them named them Salvestrols, from the Latin word “salve”, to save.
Are Salvestrols Safe?
Salvestrols are part of our everyday diet and always have been, so they are entirely safe. Salvestrol is made from organically grown fruit. Mostly they are extracted in high concentrations from tangerine or orange peel and blueberries, and mixed with concentrated blackberry and strawberry powder. None of the fruits used have been genetically modified, or treated with pesticides or anti fungal agents. Because the ingredients are 100% natural and encased in vegetable capsules there is no known toxicity, even for diabetics. However, as a precaution, Salvestrol should not be taken by pregnant women and breast-feeding mothers.
Will Salvestrol Interfere With Other Drugs?
Salvestrols are a Food Supplement and should not interfere with drug therapies unless they specifically restrict the intake of fruit sources. If so, it will be listed on the product label. Salvestrol products do not contain naringenin. Naringenin is a compound commonly found in grapefruit which may interact with several CYP enzymes and therefore interfere with some drug therapies. If you are unsure, call us for advice.

Making Salvestrols More Effective
Taking Salvestrols in combination with multivitamin, multi-mineral supplements can increase the effectiveness of Salvestrol.
Specific enhancers such as Biotin (vitamin H), Niacin (vitamin B3), Magnesium and Selenium are essential for the optimum functioning of the Salvestrols and the CYPB1 enzyme.
The uptake of Salvestrol can also be improved by the use of a quality practitioner only Probotic.
Exercise, particularly promoting aerobic fitness, and a balanced diet based on organic foods is also recommended (see Research revealing Salvestrol content of organic vs. non-organic foodstuffs).
