The dose of mixed salvsterols in BHM’s Salvestrol 60 Capsules is10mg and this should be sufficient for most people. Salvestrols Capsules also contains co-factors which are the research team have found are essential for the body to use salvestrols to maximum effect. These are biotin, niacin, vitaminC, selenium and magnesium.
Salvestrols are found in Fresh Fruit and Vegetables-But can we get enough from today’s food?
UK researchers have now discovered why they are essential to our wellbeing by gaining an understanding of how the body uses these compounds. It’s a mechanism that first developed in mammals 150 million years ago to use dietary nutrients to help maintain good health. So the mechanism has been used by man since human life first evolved.
Our diet contains probably only 10% of the salvestrol content it did a century ago.
Salvestrols-correcting today’s dietary deficiencies..as nature intended.
What are they?
Dedicated research by the team has now shown that these important substances are produced in plants to help the plants protect themselves from pests and disease, in a similar way that mankind has evolved to use them. However, the use of many modern fungicides and crop protection chemicals and techniques means that plants which are not organically grown will never express Salvestrols because they are never exposed to the attacks which cause the plant to produce them!
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.

It is estimated that we consume today something like 10-20% of the Salvestrols which would have occurred in the diet 100 years ago. So even though we are being urged us to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables, it is unlikely that unless you eat an organic diet you will get sufficient Salvestrols in your diet.

*The dose of Salvestrol in each capsule is equivalent to the Salvestrol intake which would be obtained from consuming portions of normal fresh fruit and vegetables each day. You should not replace the fresh fruit and vegetables you normally consume just because you are taking Salvestrols as a nutritional supplement. Fresh fruit and vegetables contain many beneficial ingredients such as fibre and vitamins which are not present in this formulation and are essential to your wellbeing. So take your Salvestrol supplement as well as eating fresh fruit and vegetables.

Professor Potter recommends a mainly vegetarian diet that includes fruits, vegetables and herbs. It is important that the diet is as organic as possible due to the negative effect of some herbicides and pesticides on the body’s healing mechanism.
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. They have identified that the body needs a critical level of Salvestrols to enable it to perform correctly. Too little and the protection is inadequate. Too much and the protection mechanism turns itself off because it is too swamped and the Salvestrols cannot be used by the body. Therefore the correct dose is critical.
Salvestrols are a group of recently discovered vitamin like plant derived compounds-phytonutrients-which are essential for wellbeing but cannot be made in the body and need to be supplied in the diet. They are a group of chemically unrelated substances which confer their benefits as a result of their action with a family of biological control systems called enzymes. The enzymes which use Salvestrols are present only in certain cells which are malfunctioning and when these enzymes encounter a Salvestrol they convert the Salvestrol into a form which is biologically active and it is these biologically active compounds which the body uses to control these cells. Because the enzyme is not present in healthy cells the Salvestrols exert no effect.
Unless you eat organic fruit and vegetables, you are unlikely to gain the salvestrol contribution which would have been consumed a century ago. Even then there are varying amounts of salvestrols in different varieties of the same fruit and vegetables, and cooking can also destroy some of the more fragile salvestrols.
