Limonene has immense potential therapeutic benefits, such as promising evidence for limonene’s anti-tumor effects. In studies, limonene inhibited the growth of skin and mammary tumors. These studies were followed up with a Phase I human clinical trial which found that limonene was very effective at reducing cancer tumor growth for nearly a year. Later studies found that daily limonene supplementation for 2-6 weeks silenced a protein that promotes breast cancer tumor growth. Additional reports have revealed benefits of limonene in laboratory models of lung cancer and brain cancer by causing tumor cell death. This terpene can't be beat when it comes to treating Cancer and Depression.
