Douglas Laboratories Calcium D-Glucarate 500mg
Calcium D-glucarate enhances the body’s natural defenses against environmental toxins and excess steroid hormones.* Through the actions of its metabolite D-glucaro-1,4-lactone, calcium-d-glucarate 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.
The body also deconjugates glucuronide-bound end products. The release of glucuronide-bound substances is beneficial in some circumstances, for example, when the excretion of steroid hormones is undesirable. Calcium D-glucarate provides a slow-release source of D-glucaro-1,4-lactone. When taken directly, D-glucaro-1,4-lactone is metabolized quite quickly and is excreted from the body usually within 1-2 hours of its administration.*
- Hopes to release harmful toxins from the body*
- D-glucarate are realized indirectly through the action of its metabolite D-glucaro-1,4-lactone, which inhibits the deconjugating enzyme beta-glucuronidase*
- Positively affect the functioning of the body and to improve overall well-being.*
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*
One to two capsules daily as a dietary supplement, or as directed by physician.*
