Ingredients - Limonene
Limonene is a monoterpene found in the peel of citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, and limes. It is popularly used as an essential oil and the component in many cleaning and health products with a characteristic citrus smell (if naturally based). It is easily extracted and is a pure, natural addition to a regimen for cancer, tumor reduction and proliferation, and inflammation. It helps to relieve acute pain when applied topically and works in synergy with other pain-relieving compounds
Limonene is the main terpene giving the smell to many household and beauty products. It’s link to cleanliness is true to its nature, with efficacy as an antibacterial and antioxidant. Lesser recognized is its ability to relieve pain. Limonene’s role in reducing pain comes from its ability to inhibit TRPA1 channels. These channels are sensitive to pain, itching, burning, and cold sensations. Cannabis connoisseurs may recognize the name as it’s the same terpene found in certain strains of cannabis, contributing to pain relief, anti-inflammation, and reducing tumor growth. Limonene from lemon peel has the same effect as the terpene found in cannabis, but without THC.
