Calcium D-Glucarate (Calcium D-saccharate) has been shown to promote liver detoxification by enhancing the metabolism of hormones and environmental toxins. It also helps maintain normal cholesterol levels.
Calcium D-Glucarate is produced naturally in small amounts by humans. CDG supplementation has been shown to prevent the recycling of hormones and undesirable environmental toxins, thereby promoting liver detoxification and the excretion of these potentially detrimental substances. Other applications of CDG supplementation include the maintenance of already normal cholesterol levels and facilitating healthy hormone metabolism.
Calcium D-Glucarate's detoxifying and chemopreventive properties are attributable to its ability to increase glucuronidation, and the accompanying excretion of harmful compounds. It does so by inhibiting the enzyme beta-glucuronidase. During Phase II detoxification, hormones and various undesirable lipid-soluble toxins are bound to glucuronic acid in the liver (glucuronidation) and excreted through the biliary tract; however, beta-glucuronidase can unbind these toxins, which makes it possible for them to be reabsorbed rather than excreted. D-glucaro-1,4-lactone is the metabolite that most inhibits the activity of beta-glucuronidase, thereby increasing the excretion of toxic compounds and decreasing the activity of harmful substances that are most active in their unbound state. Inhibition of beta-glucuronidase by Calcium D-Glucarate metabolites ultimately results in potentially decreasing the risk of toxicity.
