"The World Health Organization estimates that air pollution is the largest environmental risk factor for ill health, accounting globally for around 1 in 9 deaths, and these encouraging laboratory results suggest that Fruitflow could have a significant role to play in addressing this global health issue," Buck added."
Wheelds the Chinese are still very keen on TCM , FF is not on their list it wasn't around 3000 years ago although it feels like it to some of us.
Shennong, born in the 28th century BCE, according to legend, is credited with compiling a catalogue of 365 species of medicinal plants that became the basis of later herbological studies. Most medical literature, however, is founded on the Neijing (3rd century BCE; Esoteric classic), which is still regarded as a great authority. During its centuries of development, TCM spread throughout China and then into Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia. It has been a major part of traditional Chinese culture and continues to play an important role in medical treatment in China today.
A while back I posted this
What is wrong with the following ? and it's not ' dying'.
"have a massive market opportunity to meet demand for the growing year on year of the 40% of the billion plus people in China dieing from C.V. problems."
No one has thought about it so here are my thoughts please check my figs if you are invested why not , I haven't spent long on this as my 1st reaction was just instinct but I think the figs back that up. BWTFDIK ?
As for your 40% of Chinese die of CV disease , 32% of Brits do and that hasn't got them buying FF.
WTO figs are different from yours BTW see here-
The situation in China
According to official data, in China, about 230 million people have cardiovascular disease.1
One in 5 adults in the China has a cardiovascular disease.
In 2010, 154.8 per 100,000 deaths per year are estimated to be associated with cardiovascular diseases in urban areas and 163.1 per 100,000 in rural areas.
This number accounts for 20.9% /17.9% (urban/rural) of China's total number of deaths per year.2
1.4 bill /=140 mill / 7= 20 mill * 20% = 4 mill year Chinese die from CV disease .
The Chinese are 1.4 bill , 300 Mill are middle class and could afford FF , forget the rest. You cant say 40% of 300 mill because most of them are young so your sample size is a massive exaggeration and as above the fig is 20% not 40% . We know 4 mill die from CV so lets say our market target is 8 mill and to reach them we need to advertise to 20% of 300 mill so 60 mill older better off Chinese need to be told about FF .
So what is it going to take to get 8 mill Chinese to buy it ? remember these are people that believe in TCM ! It is going to take as massive effort and who is going to fork out for it ? Say someone goes for it advertising, on Ave for every $1 spent you get $5 back. But that is when you are targeting everyone with a universally appealing product , with FF in China you are targeting just 4% of the population some of which will not want to think that they might die of CV disease. There are 290 K suicides in China a year BTW.
But who knows maybe Ian Ford will reach into his own pocket and start Advertising ! Lol . DSM aren't doing anything. Someone posted up a DSM employee stood in front of a sign at a convention it looked like that sort of thing you'd show to 12 yr olds at school.
So wheelds say again why the Chinese are going to be so great for FF ? the SP says it all to me , hope I am proved wrong .
(NB the WHO figs that say 230 mill have DV disease that is 16% of the population ! I think they made a mistake here ? It also rather oddly says % of deaths due to CV is 1.548 % where as my figs are showing 2.8% ? never mind my point still stand
Like I said considering Ian Ford has taken about a million out of PXS you'd have thought his cash cow would be worth some personal show of commitment , a full page Ad in the top 10 medical journals would lift the PIs moral if we knew he'd paid for it himself. As it is he looks to be cruising until PXS delists .
Good to see our busy employees giving plenty of time to this valuable, and free source of advertising media - there are 4 posts so far this year

Just by way of a comparison, our small business features in Facebook. We post news etc. relevant to our business every day. We have 15,000 followers, and 19,000 likes. We receive at least 1 sales enquiry per day via facebook.
The effort to do this is minimal, there are 2 of us running the business
At Vitafoods, DSM will present a set of examples within the personalized nutrition space.
We are putting a lot of innovation effort into that topic in terms of leveraging digital technologies, the platform for devices that are on the market to come up with radical and disruptive innovation. We as a company really see that there is a major change in the market and we are trying to be an early adopter and trendsetter there, in order to have the solution ready for our customers, he explains.
The companys full portfolio can play a role from this regard, some of which are produced and others of which are sourced. It is all about playing with a palette, just as a painter plays with colors, he says.
We have an amazing portfolio of ingredients and it is about combining them in order to develop something that can work as a customized solution, he says.
Our vitamins play a key role and will continue to do so. As will minerals, and our nutraceuticals like our FruitFlow product [for cardiovascular health] and Tolerase G which addresses residual gluten for those following gluten-free diets. All of those will continue to play a key role, as will omega 3, he explains. "
Directly From the report:- So no deed for spell check. lol
"Chronic diseases have become one of the biggest challenges in China's public health sector partially due to the aging population. "
"More than 40 percent of Chinese die of CV disease - the first cause of death in China. "
"With the increasing number of CV diseases year-by-year, CV health index, as a comprehensive evaluation system, is very necessary," said Wang Honglin, director of chronic disease center at Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention".
By-Health, the Chinese company, in colaboration with Provexis and DSM, have a massive market opportunity to meet demand for the growing year on year of the 40% of the billion plus people in China dieing from C.V. problems.
Hence, more clarity as to why Provexis applied for a patent to cover Fruitflow as a natural way to manage the ill effects caused by bad air pollution, as in China.
The report is serious:-
"The report is not only the most authoritative large-scale integrated CV health index, but also the world£s first national level index evaluation on CV disease prevention and control".
"Eight institutions, such as the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and more than 40 experts participated in creating the health index."
If you were to order a 100 tonnes of FF then of course it would be cheaper , the thing is who is going to risk the massive Ad campaign? Massive run on packaging when the target is people that are not yet ill ,most people do not think they will get ill .
Ian Ford has had 11 years of easy living off the back of FF wonder why if he is such a a believer he hasn't put some full page Ads out in the Medical press with his own cash , every Dr I meet has never heard of FF or PXS.
Are you expecting DSM to reduce the price just for this new customer? They may some way down the line, may be linked to volume, but not to the extent where it effects existing relationships with other customers world wide
Looking at prices of brands currently available, they are at a similar price.
You are making so many fanciful assumptions, the reality is very different
If By-Health starts producing several Fruitflow products in China, then In my opinion these products, due to lower production costs, will be better value for money.
And the market uptake on lower price Fruitflow health/energy products , with global patents, now also covering the ill health effects caused by poor air polution etc.
and spot light on the benefits of Fruitflow will increase . IMHO
And as already stated new partnership will be on offer or maybe By-Health will simply buy us out.IMHO
So, yes we need to get the costs down, and By-Health is the way. IMHO
It says what partnership would, i.e. looking forward not backwards. IMHO
The article actually says:-
"and what partnerships would help them to capture the market share."
And then points out Provexis as one of the 23 companies in the 2017 study as to forward thinking in what partnerships would, not did, but would. capture the market share.
DSM is our partner at the moment and By-Health is in a collaboration deal with us at the moment; but no mention of DSM or By-Health in the study.
Hence, overall this is forward thinking . IMHO
And once By-Health starts producing Fruitflow products in China at a lower production costs, then that in my opinion, will be a very good thing for Provexis and in the global world of market competition a couple of those other 22 companies would also make a move on Provexis the help them capture the market share of a product which is good for health and energy. IMHO
Anyone have any idea how the rumoured launch of FF+ on a very limited budget in USA can be succesful, when DSM have marketed FF in USA for several years to some very large companies with no sucess whatsoever ?
People need to be reallistic about this
@ nearly 50p per dose, the market is niche at best
There is just nothing to be positive about is there
When I first read the list of Companies identified as being "Key Players in the Global Sports & Energy Drinks Market" I thought that the inclusion of Provexis Plc amongst a list of 23 other "household names" must be some sort of mistake (or even an uneducated reference to our previous connections with Science in Sport).
However, I guess that it could be a reference to the anti-inflammatory product being marketed by By-Health to the Chinese Athletics team..... But if that were the case, why isn't the reference to By-Health instead of Provexis.
Does anyone have any idea why PXS is included in that list?
Yes, I bought a few below and at 1p and sold at 1.2p.
Plus, years ago bought a few at 0.6p and 3p, and 7p and sold at 12p.
Ups and downs has been the way for over 10 years.
However, Fruitflow is a marvalous product and the share price
will reflect this factor again. IMHO
We can not escape the fact that only a minority in this country believe in
keeping themsilves fit via natural ways, but in China, my next hope for a big push in share price is the fact in China the majority believe in natural ways to keep them selves fit; and with By-Health, the Chinese company checking out and testing the benefits of Fruitflow, and the patent for protection against the health ill effects of air polution should give us a boost in revenues and share price. IMHO
Last time with Co-co cola interest the share price rose from 0.6p to 22p
"The patent filing means that DSM and the Company can use this research now to assist with discussions with current and potential customers. The Company expects that this patent application will have a strongly beneficial effect on the current and future commercial prospects for Fruitflow worldwide.'
Above is from RNS 4 DEC 2017 and is in response to part of post made by Cobaltblue.
STRONGLY BENEFICIAL EFFECT ON THE CURRENT AND FUTURE COMMERCIAL
PROSPECTS FOR FRUITFLOW WORDWIDE.
