Questions and answers:
Asked on: June 6, 2013
Question: Is the D-limonene's neutrailizing of stomach acids like that of an antiacid or drug like prevacid, or is it more like balancing the PH of the stomach to a alkaline state? Does this action inhibit the digestion of food? How would supplementing the diet with other enzymes be affected by the d-limonene?
A: D-Limonene is a volatile oil known to neutralize stomach acid. To the manufacturers knowledge, it does not inhibit proper digestion of food, nor is it contraindicated with digestive enzymes.

Question: Can d-limonene dissolve gallstones in the gallbladder?
A: D-limonene is one of the most common terpenes in nature. It is a major constituent in several citrus oils (orange, lemon, mandarin, lime, and grapefruit). D-limonene is listed in the Code of Federal Regulations as generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for a flavoring agent and can be found in common food items such as fruit juices, soft drinks, baked goods, ice cream, and pudding. D-limonene is considered to have fairly low toxicity. It has been tested for carcinogenicity in mice and rats. Although initial results showed d-limonene increased the incidence of renal tubular tumors in male rats, female rats and mice in both genders showed no evidence of any tumor. Subsequent studies have determined how these tumors occur and established that d-limonene does not pose a mutagenic, carcinogenic, or nephrotoxic risk to humans. In humans, d-limonene has demonstrated low toxicity after single and repeated dosing for up to one year. Being a solvent of cholesterol, d-limonene has been used clinically to dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones.
