    An Excellent Anti-Inflammatory Found in Nature

    ALPHA PINENE Terpenes is a monoterpene commonly found in turpentine extracted from pine trees. A monoterpene is an organic compound found in many plants. Terpenes are a natural defense mechanism produced by plants to ward of predators including viruses and bacteria.  Terpenes are produced in special secretory cells within the trichomes of the plant, in the nearly microscopic resinous stalks that cover the flowers and sometimes in leaves. Not only do terpenes provide health benefits to the plants that produce them, terpenes have also been shown to provide health benefits to humans as well.  ALPHA PINENE Terpene may help provide therapeutic relief.  Another terpene and relative of Alpha-Pine are cannabanoids,  which are also considered a monoterpene.  Terpenes are powerful building blocks within the plant that assist in the production of hormones, color, vitamins, resins and cannabanoids.

Other plants it can be found in are:  rosemary, sagebrush, turpentine, camphorweed, and even orange peels. Pinene is the most common terpene found in the plant world.

    There are two forms of pinene found in nature: α-pinene and β-pinene, both forms are important components of pine resin; they are also found in the resins of many other conifers, and are found in a variety of other plants. Both α-pinene and β-pinene are also used by many insects in their chemical communication system.

    The two types of pinene are alpha and beta. The alpha variety smells more like pine needles, and the beta type smells more like an herb scent, such as rosemary.
