Salvestrols are a new class of natural phytonutrients which are found in plants and naturally eaten as part of a healthy diet. In the plant kingdom Salvestrols are manufactured by plants as part of a biochemical defence against pathogenic attack. However, as a result of modern farming techniques, plants do not need to mount their own internal defences and most commercial produce contains only small amounts of Salvestrols compared with their heritage and organic counterparts.

These natural phytonutrients were discovered by a team of scientists in 2002, spearheaded by two professors; Dan Burke and Gerry Potter, through their work as part of the Cancer Drug Discovery Group at De Montfort University, School of Pharmacology in Leicester, England. Further investigation leads to the discovery of Salvestrols in plants and in specific varieties of organic produce. The unique action of Salvestrols inside the human body is described as a natural rescue mechanism that is essential to good health. Research indicates that organic foods contain 30 times more Salvestrols than food farmed under modern methods.
