How does Limonene work?

Limonene may block cancer forming chemicals and kill cancer cells. But more research is needed to know if this occurs in humans.

Are there safety concerns?

Limonene appears to be safe for most people when taken by mouth in medicinal amounts for up to one year.

Do not use limonene in medicinal amounts if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
