KT SPOTLIGHT, "Humulene" - A Powerful Anti-Inflammatory

Humulene, also known as α-humulene or α-caryophyllene, has a unique earthy and woody fragrance. It is a naturally occurring terpene. Terpenes are a group of fragrant essential oils found in all plants. Every fruit, vegetable and herb that you eat, derives its flavor from terpenes. Some terpenes are vitamins. Vitamin K is considered a terpene also. Humulene plant for KleanTerpenes™ KT Spotlight Blog

Terpenes are aromatic molecules produced in the resin of the plant. Most of the scents and smells that we associate with plants are due to their natural terpenes. Many plant terpenes act synergistically with other terpenes and some serve to either catalyze or inhibit formation of other compounds within a plant. Often, terpenes, which are naturally produced by plants, serve as defense mechanisms to fight predators and pathogens such as bacteria and fungi. Terpenes are a major component of essential oils. Terpenes contain medicinal properties to help regulate mood, sleep, improve thinking and overall health.
