Salvestrol Approach to Cancer

A salvestrol is a dietary phytochemical.[1] The name “salvestrols” was coined by medicinal chemist Gerard A. Potter.[2] “Salvestrol” has been trademarked and is used to market dietary supplements and other products.[3][4] Some salvestrol-based products contain extracts from blackcurrant, blueberry, strawberry, and tangerine peel.[5]

Salvesterols have been marketed as dietary supplements and promoted for their supposed anti-cancer abilities.
