What Is It?
Calcium-d-Glucarate is a patented form of glucaric acid, a
robust nutrient with the potential to support the body's
natural ability to detoxify endogenous and environmental
compounds and to promote cellular health for tissues
including the liver, prostate, lung, breast and colon.*
Uses For Calcium-d-Glucarate
Detoxification And Cellular Support: Researchers at the
University of Texas M.D. Anderson Center, Memorial
Sloan-Kettering Center of New York, AMC Center in
Colorado, and Ohio State University have extensively
studied d-glucarate. In the liver, toxic compounds are
bound to glucuronic acids so that they can be eliminated
in a safe form from the body in a cleansing process known
as glucuronidation. Beta-glucuronidase is a naturally
occurring enzyme found in various organs and cells,
which can cleave apart these neutral compounds.
Studies have indicated that d-glucarate moderates
beta-glucurondiase enzyme activity, supporting the
process by which healthy cells eliminate waste and
foreign elements. Other studies suggest the promising role
of d-glucarate in supporting healthy lipid metabolism.*
