Calcium D-Glucarate is a vital nutrient that can only be found in certain fruits and vegetables. It is thought to support the body’s natural cleansing and detoxification systems, glucoronidation in particular. Life Extension Calcium D-Glucarate supplements may also inhibit the production of beta-glucuronidase, an enzyme which is heavily involved in phase II liver detoxification and has the potential to cause hormone imbalances.

Benefits and Effects of D-glucarate Supplementation on Detoxification
D-glucarate is a valuable nutrient which can be obtained from food sources like grapefruit, apples, oranges, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. D-glucarate supports multiple bodily cleansing systems, including a detoxification mechanism called glucuronidation. Glucoronidation makes certain toxic substances water soluble, allowing for easier elimination via the urinary tract.
Oral supplementation of D-glucarate has also been shown to inhibit beta-glucuronidase, an enzyme produced by colonic microflora. While it is a necessary component in Phase II liver detoxification, excessive beta-glucuronidase concentrations can be extremely harmful to the body if left unchecked. In particular, raised levels of beta-glucuronidase may be associated with an increased risk of hormone imbalances which can be a factor in many serious health concerns.
