    We have other studies showing that d-limonene decreases serotonin, cortisol, and norepinephrine when dosed chronically and acutely after stress.

    This study mentions the following in the introduction of the full text:

    “A compound extracted from orange peel, d-limonene, could have an even greater potential, because it has been shown that its metabolite perillyl alcohol ([POH] or perillic acid) induces a peak of dopamine at 4hr in the hypothalamus after administration of d-limonene.”

    Thus, the anti-stress, 5-HT lowering, and dopamine increasing effects of d-limonene can account for the libido boost and feelings of calm that some people are reporting.

    D-limonene really seems to be a peaty substance...anti stress, good for digestion and bile flow, antimicrobial activity...

    I've taken D-limonene for about a year now, but I have to split the dose up or I get the orange burps. I first used it as a heart burn solution and anti h-pylori which may have been causing the heart burn. It's about 98% gone but I still take the D-limonene for all other good reasons.

    I’m on day 5 of 1000mg/day of d-Limonene after I saw Inaut mention it in another thread. I’m taking it mainly for liver/gallbladder (diagnosed with Gilbert’s) and stress. I will say that I actually slept nearly 7 hours uninterrupted on my back last night which is something I haven’t been able to do in years and years. I pray that it happens again tonight.

    Do you think its because of improved glycogen storage in the liver ?

    It’s also the active ingredient in many citrus based cleaning products! I use it daily!

    Keep us updated on this. For me the only thing I have found that helps with any semi-reliable efficacy is Aspirin.

    Honestly not sure. I think my hormones are out of whack due to my liver disfunction. I literally have had 24 hour anxiety for the past 15+ years. If this doesn’t work I’m going to try calcium d-glucarate.

    I’ll let you guys know if the sleep is consistent. I would love to try aspirin but I have to be careful with it because of compromised liver detox function.

    Yeah hopefully it manifests into actual results.

    Are you spreading it throughout the day or taking it all at once before sleep?

    All at once before bed.

    I messed up last night and ate a lot of food two hours before bedtime. Sleep was awful :bag:
