what is d-limonene?
Jarrow Formulas d-Limonene is a volatile oil steam-distilled from orange peel.
d-Limonene is the major constituent of several citrus essential oils (orange, lemon and lime), and naturally occurs in citrus juices.
Moreover, d-limonene stimulates both Phase I and Phase II detoxifying enzyme systems.
Jarrow Formulas uses food grade d-limonene
what distinguishes d-Limonene?
• natural heartburn protectant & detoxification stimulant
• only food-grade limonene from orange peels
• excellent limonene value
D-Limonene (1-methyl-4-(1-methylethenyl)cyclohexane) is one of the most common terpenes found in nature and a major constituent in citrus oils (orange, lemon, mandarin, lime, and grapefruit). Perhaps not surprisingly, the colorless limonene oil is redolent of oranges. Terpenes and terpenoids are the primary aromatic components in essential oils derived from plants and fruits. Structurally, they are a large and varied class of hydrocarbon compounds that are essential biochemical building blocks for almost every living organism. The dextrorotatory stereoisomer (i.e. the “d” in d-limonene) is the form found in nature.
There are basically two types of d-limonene available in commerce: food grade and technical grade.
Food grade limonene is pressed from citrus rind and steam-distilled for use as a food flavoring agent and in dietary supplements.
Lower quality technical grade d-limonene is used as a fragrance, in paint stripping and in cleaning products.
In humans, food grade d-limonene is nontoxic after repeated dosing for up to one year and is generally recognized as safe (GRAS).
d-Limonene and health
d-limonene is known as a potent solvent of cholesterol and is clinically used to enhance gallbladder function by improving the digestion of fats and eliminating accumulated materials in the gallbladder. In vitro, d-limonene dissolved human gallbladder built-up within two hours. In animals, d-limonene supplementation was able to successfully excrete accumulated fats and deposits through the bile duct. Thus, d-limonene can maintain healthy gallbladder function and also help prevent any harmful effects caused by inefficient fat digestion and fat accumulation.
Another avenue of research has found that d-limonene encourages Phase I and Phase II detoxification pathways, which helps promote healthy cell growth in humans. There are also a plethora of animal and in vitro studies that support these findings. Phase I and Phase II detoxification pathways are the body’s natural way of metabolizing toxins, oxidants, contaminants and drugs that are not water soluble so they can be excreted from the body. Without the proper functioning of these pathways xenobiotics would build-up in the body with dire effects.
Other animal studies have shown that d-limonene supplementation can enhance the immune system by potentiating immune defense mechanisms. For example, d-limonene supplementation in mice led to an increase in total white blood cell counts, antibody production, and antibody producing cells, compared to control animals. It also decreased hypersensitivity while enhancing phagocytosis and micorbicidal activity by immune cells.
In addition, a growing number of studies reported its effects on healthy cell growth and replication. One of the mechanisms of regulating cell replication is thought to be the inhibition of unwanted protein interactions including farnesyl protein transferase and p21ras association on the cell membrane that may cause disruption of normal cell functions and replication. d-Limonene metabolites also cause G1 cell cycle arrest, inhibit posttranslational modification of signal transduction proteins, and cause differential expression of cell cycle- and apoptosis-related genes to ensure healthy cell cycles.
Lastly, the antioxidative potentials of d-limonene and its components have been recently recognized. Monoterpenes and other non-volatile compounds found in d-limonene possess free-radical scavenging abilities and can inhibit lipid peroxidation. Therefore, d-limonene can provide antioxidative benefits in various organs and bodily functions, helping to eliminate oxidative stress and its negative effects in the body.

By this time of year, it has become warm enough to spend more time in our gardens. We don't just spend time gardening, but will want to dine here, too. And possibly prepare food on the BBQ or at least prepare a food buffet on holidays such as Kings Day. Unfortunately, a festive meal especially during warm weather is almost automatically associated with stomach bugs.
For elderly persons, the cause of food poisoning is mostly different. They have frequently been raised in a time of food scarcity and are less prone to discard food that is past its expiration date. Or as happening during the current lockdown, they will want to go grocery shopping as little as possible, so they may be eating food that would have been discarded otherwise. However, at their age, they will become sick more easily due to reduced immunity than a young person who has less qualms about throwing out spoiled food.
Foodborne illness, more commonly referred to as food poisoning, is the result of eating contaminated, spoiled, or toxic food. The most common symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Although it’s quite uncomfortable, food poisoning isn’t unusual. According to reliable data 1 in 6 persons will contract some form of food poisoning every year.
Food poisoning symptoms
If you have food poisoning, chances are it won’t go undetected. Symptoms can vary depending on the source of the infection. The length of time it takes for symptoms to appear also depends on the source of the infection, but it can range from as little as 1 hour to as long as 28 days. Common cases of food poisoning will typically include at least three of the following symptoms:
How to avoid lead poisoning
Although exposure to lead has decreased within the last two decades, it is still a concern and caution is advised, especially for children who have access to toys with lead-based paint or individuals who live in older homes. In some instances, lead can leach from the main water pipes and into the household water supply. If exposed to lead, eating a healthy diet can help reduce its absorption by the body.
When lead is consumed, research shows it can cause learning and behavior problems; as it accumulates, it can cause lasting problems with growth and development. Infants and children are at a higher risk because they absorb lead more quickly than adults, in addition to being more likely to put non-food items that might contain lead in their mouth.
Why celebrating life with food is important for our health
Especially in the darkest months of the year, there seems to be an endless amount of celebrations.
No matter what is always a common theme: food is the main attraction! In fact, the focus society currently places on food has caused us to associate certain foods with holidays, past events and special times. When we sink our teeth into such foods, it can bring back memories we hold close and take us back to a time we enjoyed. Food is much more powerful than we think!
From catching up for coffee, relaxing over brunch, indulging in a long lunch or bonding at a BBQ, it’s hard to imagine getting together without the company of food. Food is something we all have in common, we all must eat, most of us find food pleasurable and trying new foods or cafes is a new experience we can share with others.
Symptoms and natural treatments of indigestionIndigestion or heartburn can happen when your body has trouble digesting food. Anyone can get it on occasion, or it can be an ongoing problem. Heartburn is especially prominent in December with so many holidays accompanied with delicious foods, that prompt us to overindulge.
While acid reflux is a common phenomenon, not all symptoms of it, are very obvious.
When heartburn happens, for instance due to smoking, alcohol, medication, carbonated drinks or some foods that are difficult to process (spices, fats, acids, fiber) may cause a valve-like stomach muscle to loosen, allowing stomach acid to backwash into the esophagus. This exposes sensitive tissue in the chest to stomach acids, causing painful symptoms.
Common symptoms of reflux are a burning feeling in your chest or stomach, burping, bloating, gurgling stomach, acid reflux, heartburn, nausea or even vomiting.
Problems in your GI tract or other health issues also can cause indigestion. These include:
- acid reflux, gastroesophageal reflux (GER), or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): A reaction to food and drink where contents come back up from your stomach. The acid can come up into your esophagus, the tube-like organ connecting your mouth and stomach. Acid reflux also can produce vomiting. This condition causes heartburn because of the high acid contents.
- irritable bowel syndrome: a disorder that affects your intestines. Symptoms include stomach pain, bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea.
- infection: a bacterial infection from Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) can cause indigestion.
- gastroparesis: A condition that affects digestion. If muscles in your GI tract stop working, your body slows down or stops the movement of food. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, bloating, and acid reflux.
- ulcer: A sore on the lining of your stomach (peptic ulcer), small intestine, or esophagus.
- gastritis: Inflammation of your stomach lining.
- stomach cancer: This is a rare condition, but indigestion can be one of its signs.
