Calcium D-Glucarate is calcium bound to d-glucaric acid, which is a natural compound produced in small amounts by the human body and is abundantly found in various plant foods such as broccoli, cabbage, kale, apples, oranges, and grapefruit. Research shows that d-glucaric acid derivatives such as calcium d-glucarate help support the body’s natural defense against toxins and excess steroid hormones. Unlike glucaric acid, calcium d-glucarate is available as a supplement. Oral supplementation of calcium d-glucarate is an ideal way to provide the body with an efficient, slow-release source of its active metabolite, D-glucaro-1, 4-lactone. This supplement is designed to support normal liver detoxification and overall health.
Supplementing with calcium D-glucarate may be beneficial for individuals seeking higher amounts of this powerful compound. It supports the body’s ability to eliminate toxins and hormones by enhancing liver detoxification capacity. During a process called glucuronidation, foreign toxins and excess hormones bind to glucuronic acid and are eliminated from the body, primarily through the stool in the gastrointestinal tract.
However, certain bacterial species in the large intestine produce an enzyme called ? glucuronidase, which can de-couple or unbind these compounds from glucuronic acid, potentially impacting the body’s elimination process. Calcium D-glucarate has the potential to inhibit the activity of this enzyme, facilitating the removal of these compounds.
In addition, reducing the activity of ? glucuronidase may also support increased excretion of bile acids, aid in glucuronidation of cholesterol, and promote healthy cholesterol metabolism and excretion. Experience the benefits of Designs for Health’s Calcium D-Glucarate and support your body’s natural detoxification and overall well-being journey.
