Salvestrols And Health
Salvestrols by Jane Thurnell-Read
I have been really impressed by a relatively new product I have been using. It’s called Fruit Force. (I have no financial or other involvement with the company producing it, but I just feel it’s very important to spread the word about this great product, which is being used with such success across a range of different and difficult problems.)
Fruit Force is a capsule that contains organic extracts of tangerine, cranberry, strawberry and grape. What’s so special about it? This particular product is high in salvestrols, which are an essential component of the human diet.
Salvestrols are a class of natural molecules containing dozens - perhaps hundreds - of different types. The first to be identified was resveratrol, from grape skins. More recently identified salvestrols have turned out to be more powerful, offering enhanced levels of potency.
Current research has shown that modern agricultural methods, in particular the use of synthetic fungicides, prevents plants from producing salvestrols since they are not challenged by fungal infection. Salvestrols are anti-fungal compounds produced by the plant when fungal attack is likely. (Non-organic foods are usually low in salvestrols because they are sprayed with fungicides and so do not need to mount their own defence against attacks by fungus.)
Processed foods, such as many fruit juices, may have salvestrols removed during processing, to ‘improve’ the flavour of the product.
So, what can this product be used for? I have had great success using it with a stubborn case of eczema, and some other skin diseases. (I have used their cream containing salvestrols at the same time.) I know other practitioners are having similar results with both eczema and psoriasis. There is also anecdotal evidence that it may help people with Parkinson’s disease. Some people with multiple sclerosis are also trying it, but it is too early to say yet if it is being effective for this.
If this isn’t exciting enough, I have talked to two practitioners who have told me about clients who have taken it for cancers with astonishing results. Take a look at the Natures’ Defence web site. On this site you will be able to download a copy of an article from the British Journal of Cancer on how salvestrols work on tumours.
