This Calcium D-Glucarate supplement was created by Thorne Research to promote
enhanced liver detoxification. It was designed to support glucuronidation, which
is an important liver detoxification pathway.
D-Glucarate can prevent toxins from being recycled back into the liver. It
also has been known to support healthy hormone metabolism. As you can expect
from Thorne Research, this supplement is made without any preservatives,
magnesium stearate or other diluents and lubricants.
What is Calcium D-Glucarate?
Calcium D-glucarate is produced naturally by the body of humans, although it
is produced in small amounts. Supplementing with calcium D-glucarate has been
shown in studies to stop environmental toxins and hormones from being recycled
by the liver, which can promote better liver detoxification and allow these
potentially harmful substances to be excreted from the body.
In addition to the small amount of calcium D-glucarate that our bodies
produce, you can also find this substance in fruits and vegetables, such as
Brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, apples and oranges. In supplements, such as
this one by Thorne Research, it is made by combining glucaric acid with calcium.
More research must be done on the effects of calcium D-glucarate on
preventing and treating disease, but it is believed to be effective in
preventing colon, prostate and breast cancer. It is also used to help the body
remove cancer-causing agents, steroid hormones and toxins.
BBecause it is believed that calcium D-Glucarate may lower estrogen levels,
some believe that it can be helpful in treating people with hormone-dependent
cancers. There isn’t enough research to support this, but if you think
supplementation may help, talk to your doctor about the potential risks and
benefits of adding calcium D-glucarate supplements to your dietary routine.
What is Glucuronidation?
Glucuronidation happens naturally in the liver every day. It is the process
by which the body attaches a glucuronic acid molecule to substances that should
be eliminated from the body. During phase II liver detoxification, steroid
hormones, toxic chemicals and other fat-soluble toxins go through
glucuronidation before they are removed from the body through bile or urine.
Supplementing with calcium D-glucarate helps to assure that this process is
allowed to occur without interruption.
In addition to helping the liver detoxify, calcium D-glucarate helps the body
maintain already normal cholesterol levels and supports the healthy metabolism
How to Take Thorne Research’s Calcium D-Glucarate
If you think you can benefit from calcium D-glucarate, you may take one of
these supplements by Thorne Research up to three times daily, or as directed by
your health care practitioner. Do not take calcium D-glucarate with alcohol as
alcohol may increase the rate of excretion of calcium D-glucarate. Because
alcohol can accelerate the speed in which the body gets rid of calcium
D-glucarate, it can significantly decrease its effectiveness./p>

I have been using this product for several years. It was recommended by my doctor for effective estrogen metabolism as well as for general detoxification. My hormones remain balanced, and I am in excellent health, and I attribute that in part to this product. I know I can trust Thorne Research to put out a consistently high-quality product. And Pure Formulas has the best price, bar none.

Good for detoxification
