Does D-limonene help against cancer?
D-limonene has not been shown to treat or prevent cancer. D-limonene is derived from the peels of citrus fruits and it shows anti-inflammatory, wound healing and anticancer effects in laboratory studies. D-limonene was shown to alter the signaling pathways within cancer cells in a way that stops cancer cells from multiplying and causes their death; this is called apoptosis. In animal models, D-limonene slowed the growth of pancreatic, stomach, colon, skin, and liver cancers. It also slowed formation of tumors and their progression in animals exposed to cancer-causing substances.
However, these anticancer effects have not been shown in humans. To prevent and treat cancer, an epidemiological study showed that people who ate more citrus peel had less cancer of a type called squamous but this was not confirmed.
