Salvestrol Platinum 90s

Made in New Zealand

Salvacare Salvestrols "the most significant breakthrough in nutrition since the discovery of vitamins". Made in New Zealand, Salvacare salvestrols are a new class of natural compounds that have a pharmacological defination rather than a chemical definition.  They are defined by the action of the metabolites produced when they are metabolised by the CYP1B1 enzyme, identified in all soft tissue sarcomas. With 2000 Salvestrol points per capsule.  90 Vegetarian capsules

This product is for practitioner dispensing. If this is your first order for Salvestrols, someone from our Naturopathic team will contact you to discuss the suitability of this product, before your order is dispatched.

Common Uses

So here is the Summary on Salvestrols

  • Salvestrols are most abundant in organically grown fruits and vegetable especially heritage varieties.
  • CYP1B1 is a universal cancer marker that shows up in all the various cancers but not in healthy tissue.
  • Salvestrols are food based compounds that when metabolised by CYP1B1, produce a metabolite that induces apoptosis in the cancer cell.
  • Salvestrols are part of the plants defense mechanism against predation such as fungal attack.
  • In the presence of a large dietary source of Salvestrols such as from organically grown heritage crops, this mechanism works to maintain good health by killing off aberrant cells.  In dietary deficiencies in which Salvestrol ingestion is chronically low, aberrant cells proliferate.  By addressing this dietary deficiency, the mechanism can return the body to good health.

Suggested Dosage

After reviewing the pharmacokinetics of the various Salvestrol compounds, the best estimate is that an intake of 4,000 to 6,000 Salvestrol points per day would likely be required to overcome a long term dietary deficiency that has resulted in a cancer diagnosis.

However, much higher doses have been used with cancers of the brain and in advanced metastatic disease.

Once remission has been achieved, it is thought that a daily intake of 2,000 Salvestrol points per day should be sufficient to maintain good health.

Each Salvacare Salvestrol capsule contains 2000 Salvestrol Points per capsule.

Health Information


We have all heard the statement "Eat your vegetables, they are good for you", but what is the basis behind it?  We may have been given the explanation that studies of people who have a diet made up of abundant fruits and vegetables enjoy greater health benefits and reduced risk of cancer, however this doesn’t really tell us “How this works”.

How did Salvestrols Come About?

A group of cancer researchers are the ones who provided a real explanation about salvestrols and explained how eating fruits and vegetables would not just prevent cancer but could kill cancer.

The Enzyme CYP1B1 (pronounced ‘sip one be one’)

They initially discovered that the enzyme CYP1B1 showed up in soft tissue sarcomas but did not show up in surrounding healthy tissue.  They found the same result in Breast cancer, namely that CYP1B1 was present in breast cancer cells, but not in the surrounding normal breast cells.

They then went on to investigate a broad array of cancers and found the same result of CYP1B1 being present in cancer cells of the colon, lung, oesophagus, skin, lymph nodes, brain and testis with no detectable presence in the surrounding healthy tissue.

This cumulative body of evidence was very exciting, as it indicated that CYP1B1 might serve as a universal cancer marker and as such, could be used both as a target for cancer therapy and as a target to use for diagnostic purposes.

In short, CYP1B1 could be the Holy Grail of cancer research.  At this point, laboratories around the world started investigating CYP1B1 and it is now widely regarded as a universal cancer marker of great utility, because it shows up in the various cancers, but is absent from healthy tissue.

So how do Salvestrols Work in the body?

Organic Fruits and Veggies Contain Naturally Occurring Salvesterols.

We ingest Salvestrols from organic fruit and vegetables.  They are absorbed and transported through the body.

When Salvestrols encounter the CYP1B1 enzyme in cancer cells, the CYP1B1 enzyme metabolises the Salvestrols, producing a metabolite that induces the death of the cancer cell.

It is a very elegant mechanism and it provides great credibility to the hypothesis that CYP1B1 is a rescue enzyme.

It also indicates that cancer can be viewed as a dietary deficiency.  When the diet is deficient in Salvestrols, cancer cells proliferate.  When a diet is rich in Salvestrols, this rescue mechanism maintains good health of the body.

If the body has cancer cells, the ingestion of Salvestrols tend to get rid of the cancer cells and returns the body to good health.

What did their findings show about Salvestrols?

In short, it showed that fruits and vegetables that were grown using traditional or organic methods produced significantly higher quantities of Salvestrols than those grown conventionally.

Furthermore, they found that heritage varieties (plants that have not been bred or modified to change their original characteristics) produced vastly higher quantities of Salvestrols.

Why do heritage Fruits & Veggies contain higher amount of Salvestrols than other produce?

Salvestrols are part of the plants defense against predation, particularly against fungal attacks. They are produced in response to predation.

Consequently if a plant is sprayed with agents that reduce predation or reduce fungal attacks, the plant does not produce Salvestrols.

This is why these beneficial compounds are not part of our typical diet.

Furthermore, plants have been bred to produce sweeter fruits and vegetables in an attempt to increase their market appeal.  Salvesterols are a very bitter substance.

Salvestrol Points & what these actually mean?

When we take pills or capsules, we are used to seeing the amount of a drug or nutrient given in a unit such as milligrams or international units. This follows from a pharmaceutical model where a single active agent is being given.

Salvestrols represent a class of compounds.

Salvestrols are derived from food and they constitute a class of compounds rather than a single compound.

Each unique Salvestrol compound has its own characteristic selectivity.

This fact makes it unreasonable to indicate an amount in milligrams, as the potency of the product would vary greatly depending on which mix of Salvestrols were used.

Salvestrol points have been developed as a metric of potency that can be used with any mixture of Salvestrols.

Salvestrols in a capsule. How much should you take?

Capsules are produced that contain 100 points, 350 points, 1,000 points and 2,000 points.

After reviewing the pharmacokinetics of these various Salvestrol compounds, our best estimate is that an intake of 4,000 to 6,000 Salvestrol points per day would likely be required to overcome a long term dietary deficiency that has resulted in a cancer diagnosis.

However, much higher doses have been used with cancers of the brain and in advanced metastatic disease.

Once remission has been achieved, it is thought that a daily intake of 2,000 Salvestrol points per day should be sufficient to maintain good health.

Salvestrols are not the answer for everyone

The situations described in the book, Salvestrols Journeys To Wellness, are meant to show how this Salvestrol/CYP1B1 rescue mechanism can assist some of those afflicted with cancer in their return to good health.

They are not meant to convey a sense that these are the outcomes that everyone should expect.  Certainly, people have made dietary changes and utilised Salvestrol supplementation without achieving remission.

Many factors contribute to the success or failure in individual cases, including dietary choices, exercise level, psycho-social stresses, type and amount of conventional therapies and exposure to toxins in the environment.

A number of substances reduce the effectiveness of Salvestrols

Yes, the following substances reduce the effectiveness of Salvestrol capsules:

  • Agrochemicals – herbicides, pesticides, fungicides
  • Topical anti-fungal shampoos and creams
  • Smoking
  • Cannabis products
  • Resveratrol supplements over 50mg per day
  • St John’s Wort
  • Apricot Kernels
  • Grapefruit
  • Artificial and natural sugar substitutes – sucralose, aspartame, agave, stevia, xylitol, mannitol, sorbitol
  • Excessive juice consumption – limit juice intake to 3 glasses per day


What can improve the effectiveness of Salvestrol capsules?

  • B complex
  • Vitamin C
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Exercise
  • Stress management
  • Organic diet.

So remember that Salvesterols work the best when incorporated into a complete lifestyle program.
