Question: Is there evidence that d-limonene can help fight cancer?
Answer: D-limonene is found in the peels of citrus fruits like lemons, oranges, limes and grapefruit. It is a common flavor enhancer in foods, beverages and gum. It is sometimes used to increase the absorption of certain supplements, like CoQ10 and ubiquinol, and, at a lower dose, may serve as a digestive aid. Some studies and reports suggest d-limonene might play a role in preventing or slowing certain cancers, or enhancing the effectiveness of cancer treatments, but the research remains preliminary and far from convincing.
