Salvestrols health supplements - a discovery
Wednesday, 14 October 2015 | Stuart
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 both to establish scientific proof and seek to further understand the ways in which this remarkable cell rescue mechanism can be harnessed to our benefit.
What are Salvestrol health supplements?
salvestrols are newly discovered micro nutrients that are essential for maintaining balanced human health. 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.
Salvestrol Health supplements - how can they benefit my health?
Cells in the body use salvestrols to correct themselves when things to 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 inflammation 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.
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 non-organic 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 preparation and processing techniques: In an ideal world we should consume locally sourced, raw foods. But modern overcooking techniques have dramatically reduced the levels of salvestrol we consume.
TODAY WE CONSUME ONLY 10% OF THE RDA OF SALVESTROLS IN COMPARISON TO 100 YEARS AGO.
How do antioxidants and salvestrol 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 consult your health practitioner for personalised advice and nutrition plans.
