D-Limonene, an oil nutrient called a terpene, is an amazing natural compound found in lemon and orange peels. It offers natural support for immunity, digestion, liver detoxification, gallbladder function, fat metabolism, and nervous system health.* D-Limonene supports healthy immune function, phase I and phase II detoxification enzymes, peristaltic motion and may help occasional heartburn.*
All plants synthesize terpenes; plants use them as a natural defense system. Humans naturally ingest a wide variety of terpenes in their diet, which is essential for good health. Numerous animal studies demonstrate d-Limonene's wide variety of immune support activity. This nutrient helps macrophages function effectively as well as nourish antibody production.*
Due to its fat-soluble nature d-Limonene has a high affinity for fatty tissue, including breast tissue. Once in tissue, it supports the antioxidant network as well as helps calm inflammation. It also helps guide cell activities in support of normal function. Significant animal research demonstrates that d-Limonene is an excellent nutrient for breast health.*
D-Limonene has demonstrated ability to help improve digestion, sluggish bowels, and occasional reflux.* To help move your bowels forward 1,000 mg of d-Limonene per day may be enough, although higher doses may be desired.* Human studies show that 1,000 mg per day or even every other day has a beneficial impact on reflux within 10 doses.*
Gallbladder Health & Detoxification
D-Limonene is a unique fat solvent shown to support healthy gallbladder function. Normal gallbladder function requires that fatty substances flow freely through your gallbladder. Stressed gallbladder function is associated with stagnation or "stickiness" in the natural flow. The solvent properties of d-Limonene make it in excellent nutritional option to support healthy gallbladder flow.*
D-Limonene also activates several Phase I and Phase II liver detoxification enzymes that are responsible for clearing toxins. Once your liver processes toxins it sends many of them into your bile; these go through your gallbladder, and into your digestive tract for final elimination. Enhancing liver and gallbladder functions makes d-Limonene an excellent nutrient to support natural cleansing processes.*
Appetite & Metabolism
D-Limonene has a mild appetite suppressant effect, which you can use to help settle down your appetite. An animal study using d-Limonene showed that it can help offset the metabolic stress of a high fat diet. Because d-Limonene naturally accumulates in white adipose tissue it can help your fat cells via its general mechanisms of operation, supporting your antioxidant network and anti-inflammatory systems.*
Relaxation & Sleep
D-Limonene has natural calming properties and therefore is potentially useful to help relax nerves and assist sleep. D-Limonene helps activate the adenosine A(2A) receptor on cell membranes, which helps nerves function in a relaxed manner.*
Dosage of d-Limonene
A typical dose of d-Limonene is 1 capsule, up to three times per day. Higher doses may be used, as desired. Doses ranging from 7,000 mg to 15,000 mg per day have been used safely in human studies.*
