response to aristotle's 'soybean' review
This product contains medium chain triglycerides which are metabolized and used as energy very quickly, whereas soybean oil contains long chain triglycerides which usually get stored as fat. I don't know why D-Limonene uses medium chain triglycerides in this product, but I'm relatively sure it's not a bad thing. In fact there is research that shows MCT's have various benefits. For example, it is marketed to athletes and bodybuilders as a quick source of energy during a workout.

great for skin
I love how our skin absorbs nutrients.........this is a great example. Regardless of how much orange peel extract is in the capsul, this supplement,
opened and used on my face as a deep cleanse with a quick warm water rinse, or sometimes as an overnight moisturizer is an absolute perfect use for this mixture of oils. I do this once a week as an alternate to my usual routine.

Delicious in tea
I like to squeeze the softgel contents into my tea for added flavor and antioxidant benefits. It's especially good with Swanson Vitamin C powder and Swanson stevia.

The taste is fine. I like this product the way it is.

Soybean Oil with Trace of Orange
I buy a substantial amount of products from Swanson and this is the first time I have been motivated to write a negative review.
My main disappointment stems from the fact that the softgels are very large yet only contain 250mg of orange-oil-sourced limonene. This amount of limonene would fit perfectly in a very tiny softgel. Instead, what you get with this product is a giant softgel stuffed full of soybean oil with 1 drop of orange-oil blended within. This is, in my opinion, highly undesirable.
As an alternative I purchased Organic Orange Oil [Item # NWF624] and put a few drops into an empty capsule which I am quite pleased with.
I regret having purchased several of these on "buy one get one free" and would not recommend them at any price.

D-Limonene, Leading Edge Supplement
I do research on supplements and came across information that stated the efficacy of citrus oil extract and I had some difficult time locating a d-Limone product. It is not available in many excellent vitamin and nutritional support vendors but, I found it here at Swanson Vitamins. (The only reservation I have is that the capsule is large which is fine but it is large as well as thick.) Additionally, Swanson also has other leading edge supplements as well that cannot be found elsewhere. I recommend them as a trusted source for your supplemental needs and for those looking for difficult to locate supplements. Their prices cannot be beat. Thank you Swanson for sponsoring research and or reporting on findings that are useful to us all.

This product has proven to be worth its weight in gold for me. If I take 1 before a meal the effects are amazing. No indigestion, no burning. I highly recommend this product.
