Your Path to Well-Being

Most terpenes are secondary metabolites produced by plants to manipulate their surroundings by inhibiting the growth of competitor plants, deterring pests or attracting carnivorous insects to eat them. In humans, they can elicit a wide range of useful effects.

 

We've been working with and studying terpenes since 1997, and have over 50 years of collective experience in the industry, with degrees covering pharmaceutics, health science, toxicology, physiology, ergonomics and sports science. We've compiled this database to assist you to understand the benefits of many of the terpenes and terpenoids encountered through food we consume every day.
