Calcium D-glucarate is a substance produced naturally in small
amounts by humans. Supplementation of calcium D-glucarate has been
shown to prevent recycling of hormones and environmental toxins,
promoting liver detoxification and excretion of these potentially
Glucuronidation is the normal process in
the liver of attaching a glucuronic acid molecule to substances for
detoxification and elimination from the body. During phase II liver
detoxification, toxic chemicals, steroid hormones, and other fat-soluble
toxins undergo glucuronidation and are then excreted through the bile
or urine. Calcium D-glucarate helps assure this elimination process
Other applications of calcium D-glucarate
supplementation include the maintenance of already normal cholesterol
levels and support for healthy hormone metabolism.
