What Are Terpinene and Terpineol Compounds?

Terpineol and terpinene compounds are natural ACE inhibitors that may help with hypertension.

Terpinene and terpineol compounds are monoterpenoid compounds found in turmeric's essential oils from various parts of the plant (leaf, flower, root, and rhizome). Alpha-terpineol is found in all parts of turmeric, but the flower contains most of it. Gamma-terpinene and terpenoline have only been found in the leaf. (ii.171115202425)

Other herbs, fruits, and spices that contain terpineol and terpinene compounds include basil, coriander, cumin, juniper berries, lavender, lemon, lime, marjoram, oranges, oregano, parsley, savory, tamarind, tarragon, and thyme. Many of these offer healthful benefits, too, whether used as a spice, as an herbal remedy (e.g., for preventing cancer, wrinkles, thinning hair, or stress relief), or in aromatherapy(ii.171115202425)
