D-Limonene, another prominent terpene in That’s Natural products, is also found in lemon and orange. It has a wide variety of health benefits, like the other terpenes. Some of its main benefits are it’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it offers assistance for metabolic and health problems, has anti-tumor properties, and some people even find success using it for weight management!
This article helps explain some of the health benefits in more detail, but one of them is helping the liver to detoxify enzymes. Interestingly, plants use terpenes like D-Limonene to help defend against insects and environmental stress, and to repair injuries and wounds.
One of the benefits of D-Limonene is bowel motility and digestive balance of power. Part of sluggish bowels is often because of an overgrowth of bacteria. Remember what plants use this terpene for? To kill pathogens. D-Limonene may help speed up, and regulate your bowel movements.
One of the most common issues that D-Limonene helps to treat is insomnia. It is a selective activator of the Adenosine A(2A) receptor on cell membranes. The lack of activation of this receptor results in anxiety, insomnia, and impaired dopamine transmission. Also, a lack of activation of A (2A) receptors on immune cells results in allergic reactions.
Although the research for cancer and people is lacking, there is some persuasive evidence for its benefits. In 2000, the University of Arizona found that people living in the Southwest region of America, and age lemon peels as part of their diet had significantly reduced occurrence of skin cancer. Other patients with advanced breast and colon cancer were given high doses of d-Limonene and were able to hold off progression for as much as six months.
