Hypolipidemic – lipid lowering

A 2011 study published in the journal PLOS One demonstrated a connection between camphene and significant reductions in cholesterol and triglycerides in blood serum. Cholesterol and triglycerides are two of the chief causes of heart disease, including heart attacks and strokes. Proving the specific efficacy of individual terpenes, the researchers tested other terpenes, including pinene, beta-caryophyllene (BCP), linalool, and myrcene. It was found that none of these terpenes had the ability to lower blood cholesterol and triglycerides like camphene.
