Calcium D-Glucarate 500 mg
Calcium D-Glucarate, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a natural supplement of D-glucaric acid bound to calcium.
This product enhances the body’s natural defenses against environmental toxins and excess steroid hormones. Through the actions of its metabolite D-glucaro-1,4-lactone, this product indirectly favors glucuronidation, an important system that the body relies upon to deactivate and eliminate toxins and steroid hormones.
Glucuronidation is a conjugation process through which potentially carcinogenic environmental toxins, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and nitrosamines, and excess steroid hormones are neutralized. During glucuronidation, the enzyme glucuronosyl transferase catalyzes the conjugation of free carcinogens and steroid hormones to glucuronic acid. The resulting glucuronide-bound toxins and hormones can then be safely excreted in bile and urine.
Calcium D-Glucarate may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to supplement their diet with D-glucaric acid as a precursor to D-glucaro-1, 4-lactone.
