Survivor was born out of the desire of founder Laurence Cardwell to find a solution to his own lost productivity. Following personal research and an extensive process of trial and error, Laurence came to the realisation that he could not solve this problem alone – a problem as yet unresolved in Western culture, despite 10,000 years of continuous alcohol consumption.
The challenge of finding and identifying ingredients which could prove beneficial brought Laurence into contact with Professor Dr. Gertrude Kubiena, an ex-Red Cross Vice President, whose extensive knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine led to the inclusion of Survivor’s three traditional herbal ingredients; dihydromyricetin (DHM) extracted from Vine Tea (Ampelopsis grossedentata), followed by Puerariae Flower (Puerariae lobatae Flos) extract, and a potent Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) extract.
Survivor is the only product on the market to provide this combination of three ingredients used traditionally to promote liver health.
The technical formulation was further developed to include a blend of vitamins, minerals and electrolytes under the expert guidance of Simon Williams, food scientist and director of one of Europe’s leading nutraceutical providers. This combination of Eastern tradition with Western science led to the formulation we see in Survivor today.
