Calcium D-Glucarate from Douglas Labs is a natural supplement that supplies D-glucaric acid bound to calcium, which serves as a bioavailable precursor to D glucaro-1,4-lactone. Support for enhancing the bodys 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.
The benefits of calcium D-glucarate are realized indirectly through the action of its metabolite Dglucaro-1,4-lactone, which inhibits the deconjugating enzyme beta-glucuronidase found in both blood and tissue. Inhibition of beta-glucuronidase causes a net increase in glucuronidation, and thereby provides support for enhancing a primary detoxification pathway in the body*.
