How Calcium D-Glucarate WorksCalcium D-Glucarate is from the Douglas Labs Hormone Detoxification product line.
Calcium D-glucarate supports the body's natural defenses against environmental toxins and excess steroid hormones by way of glucuronidation.
Glucuronidation is a conjugation process through which potentially carcinogenic environmental toxins, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and nitrosamines, and excess steroid horm ones are neutralized. 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.
The benefits of calcium D-glucarate are realized indirectly through the action of its metabolite D-glucaro-1,4-lactone, which inhibits the d econjugating enzyme beta-glucuronidase found in both blood and tissue. Inhibition of beta-glucuronidase causes a net increase in glucuronidation, and thereby enhances a primary detoxification pathway in the body.
Calcium D-glucarate provides a slow-release source of D-glucaro-1,4-lactone. When taken directly, D-glucaro1,4-lactone is metabolized quite quickly and is excreted from the body usually within 1-2 hours of its administration. Calcium D-glucarate, however, is metabolized slowly, remaining in the body for 5 or more hours after ingestion. This results in maintenance of stable levels of D-glucaro-1,4-lactone for long periods of time. D-glucaric acid is produced endogenously in small amounts. It is also present in some fruits and vegetables, including oranges, apples, grapefruit, broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables.
