Salvestrol Recipes - Artichoke & Broccoli

Artichokes and Broccoli are 2 of the top superfoods when it comes to salvestrol content.

Artichokes contain 5% dry weight of pure salvestrols and are the No1 food in this respect. The artichoke is one of the foods referred to by Hippocrates when he said "Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food" so its medicinal properties have been known for centuries. Include artichokes as a pizza topping together with olives and capers. The artichoke is a large thistle head and belongs to the thistle family which includes other medicinal herbs that are rich in salvestrols such as burdock, milk thistle and blessed thistle. The thistles belong to an even larger plant family known as the compositae family which includes many common yellow flowered wild herbs such as dandelion and daisy. It also includes the sunflower and the jerusalem artichoke which has delicious edible roots that are naturally rich in salvestrols. Real Dandelion and Burdock root beer would make a real medicinal brew if it were only made with real dandelion and burdock roots. Burdock root forms part of the Essiac herbal mixture and is also present in the Hoxsey Remedy for cancer. So plants from the compositae family as a whole have had widespread historical use as medicinal herbs.

Broccoli is another cancer busting vegetable that can be used in juicing to get the maximum intake. When juicing a 1 kg portion will yield 100 salvestrol points. Broccoli are part of the cabbage family of cruciferous vegetables and all of this family have high salvestrol content. This family of vegetables includes cabbage broccoli savoy cabbage chinese leaf brussel sprouts and water cress.
