Geraniol and Geranylgeranoic Acid

Table II.20: Geraniol and Geranylgeranoic Acid (ii.1520-21245688-90)

Geraniol and its related compounds are found in the essential oil from turmeric rhizomes. They are also found in other herbs, fruits, and spices, including absinthe, basil, bay leaf, citronella, coriander, dill, garlic, ginger, honeysuckle, hops, lemon, lemon balm, lemongrass, mace, nutmeg, oranges, rose oil, tamarind, and Queen Anne's lace. Plants that contain geraniol compounds have beneficial properties that could help treat thinning hair, prevent cancer, reduce stress, get rid of acne, and even help with wrinkles and weight loss.

  • Lab studies indicate dietary turmeric increases blood plasma levels of geraniol derivatives, including geranylgeranoic acid (GGA).
  • In clinical trials geraniol induced cancer cell death in patients with liver cancer.
  • Lab studies show geraniol prevents pancreatic cancer cells from replicating. One of the ways it works is by stimulating production of tumor suppressors.
  • In an animal study, geraniol significantly blocked skin cancer.
  • Helps get rid of pests that attack garden vegetables (such as the European corn borer).
  • Inhibits Anisakis simplex, a parasitic worm that can cause food poisoning and severe allergic reactions.
  • Repels mosquitoes that cause malaria and yellow fever.
