Calcium D-glucarate provides a slow-release source of D-glucaro-1,4-lactone.
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.
- 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.
Directions: One to two capsules daily as a dietary supplement, or as directed by physician.
