Salvestrols

Has anyone else been taking the supplement Salvestrol?

The evidence is really weak and the scientists who present the evidence are also the owners of the manufacturers! A case for cynicism if ever there was one.

A kind relative bought me £200 worth as he was convinced by a friend that they had cured his cancer. In the face of such generosity, it would have been churlish not to take them. So highly cynical as I was, I started on salvestrols and as I hadn't recurred, I continued up to present.

So admittedly, taking salvestrols could be complete quackery and my long recurrence-free time may soon be over but I'd be interested if anyone else has taken them and had success.

Love and strength to all.

Hi Sandra,

Funnily enough, I take salvestrol! My kinesiologist recommended it to me, and she doesn’t have any vested interest in it. I have other cancer friends who go to her, and she didn’t recommend it to them, but she feels sure it will help me. Giving them a whirl - who know if it will help!

Hey Vicki, they're definitely worth a whirl! I did have a little boost of energy when I first started taking them. I've been taking them for 3 years now! I'm not on any maintenance drugs now so it's me and the salvestrols going it alone!

Hope you have a long remission.

Hi Sandra. Never heard of those before, but can't hurt, can it? If it helps, the better. So thank you for the idea.

Hope your remission will last a long time :) .

All the best, Maus.

Thanks Maus, I feel I can't come off them now just in case they are working. I certainly don't have any negative side effects from them so I'm sure there not doing me any harm (apart from the £40 a month they cost).

Interesting 👍 I hadn’t heard of them til now so thank you for the heads up

Which brand do you use, is it the platinum one and is it just one a day you take?

Think I might give these a whirl but might have to wait til after my trial ends x

Thanks though

Yes I do take the platinum ones - twice a day. Not sure I can mention the brand. Also I wouldnt like to recommend them as the evidence is old and on some websites salvestrols are regarded as useless. I'll pm you. Xx

Salvestrols:

This is close to the anti-cancer regimen (diet) I am following. It can't hurt and most definitely might help.

Hi A friend just recommended them to me from SA : she has had a 20per cent reduction on the cancer on her liver ( primary breast) but who knows as she takes a lot of other supplements and is re trying Taxol. I think I may order some despite my cynicism as who knows - it may help a bit! The expense is high as for all supplements.

That's how I feel about them. I have CT results day on Thursday so will find out whether my own body plus salvestrols are keeping the beast at bay.

Hi Sandra, I would like to try some, how can I get them? I just started my 2nd line treatment of carbo/taxol last week after just a year in remission.

Can I take this whilst I'm on chemo? Big hugs. Xxx

Have sent you a pm. X

Hi Sam given them ago tomorrow, worth a try! What’s next for you and how you doing! Xx

Am doing well thank Jools, CT results tomorrow though 😬. I do have bronchiectasis though now (possibly a side effect of treatment) but since shaking off the side effects of nearly 3 years of double dose Avastin finally, I feel near-human again! I am expected to start chemo again soon though. Ca125 has been steadily rising and last two scans have shown slight growth in my remaining nodule. How are you doing? Sandra xx
