Douglas Labs Calcium D-Glucarate 500 mg 90 caps is a natural supplement of D-glucaric acid bound to calcium. Calcium D-Glucarate may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to supplement their diet with D-glucaric acid as a precursor to D-glucaro- 1, 4-lactone. Calcium D-glucarate enhances the body's 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.
Calcium D-Glucarate 500 mg 90 caps
Calcium D-Glucarate, an "AMNI Original Formula", comes in a new Douglas Labs label. (AMNI is part of Douglas Labs).
By supplying a slow release form of D-glucaric acid, calcium D-glucarte is an effective agent that enhances the deactivation of toxic substances and encourages their elimination from the body. When calcium glucarate is converted to D-glucaro 1,4-lactone, it counteracts the enzyme beta-glucuronidase, which can otherwise interfere with conjugation and detoxification of steroid hormones and potentially carcinogenic compounds. Beta-glucuronidase enyzmes are present in all cells, particularly the liver, kidney, lung, intestinal epithelium, breast and endocrine organs. By inhibiting this enzyme, glucaric acid derivatives may exert a protective, non antioxidant effect on the immune system.
Each capsule contains:
Calcium D-Glucarate 500 mg
Suggested Use: One to two capsules daily as a dietary supplement, or as directed by physician.
