Product Description

Calcium-D-glucarate is the calcium salt of D-glucaric acid, a substance produced naturally in small amounts by mammals, including humans. Glucaric acid is also found in many fruits and vegetables with the highest concentrations to be found in oranges, apples, grapefruit, and cruciferous vegetables.

 Calcium D-glucarate is a chemical. It is similar to a naturally occurring chemical called glucaric acid. Oral supplementation of calcium-D-glucarate has been shown to inhibit beta-glucuronidase, an enzyme produced by colonic microflora and involved in Phase II liver detoxification. Elevated beta-glucuronidase activity is associated with an increased risk for various cancers, particularly hormone-dependent cancers such as breast, prostate, and colon cancers. Other potential clinical applications of oral calcium-D-glucarate include regulation of estrogen metabolism and as a lipid-lowering agent.



Calcium supplement D-glucarate might lower the amount of estrogen, and this is considered to be attractive treating some folks with hormone-dependent cancers. There isn't adequate evidence to support the consumption of calcium D-glucarate for avoiding cancer in humans.

Calcium-D-Glucarate is hydrolyzed into free calcium and D-glucaric acid upon introduction to an acidic environment (stomach acid)and D-glucaric acid is then metabolized into one of two metabolites; D-glucaro-1,4-lactone (30% of ingested D-glucaric acid) or D-glucaro-6,3-lactone (also 30%) while 40% remains as D-glucaric acid.Elsewhere, slightly lower numbers have been reported (with D-glucaro-1,4-lactone consisting of 17-22% of total D-glucaric acid in the bile and urine)

If needed, D-glucaro-1,4-lactone can be produced in a cellular environment from oxidative changes on D-glucaric acid.

Glucaric acid is metabolized via stomach acid partly into one of two metabolites, the main bioactive D-glucaro-1,4-lactone, and then an equal amount of D-glucaro-6,3-lactone while some D-glucaric acid remains in its parent form.

Glucuronidation is a process by which usually a particle (usually hydrophobic) is attached to a glucuronide team, usually by the enzyme glucuronosyltransferase. The addition regarding a glucuronide group by way of glucuronidation signals the chemical for excretion from typically the body via the kidneys as it makes typically the molecule more water resoluble; it is one of the major paths of detoxification within the body.

Presently there is an opposite response in which a glucuronidated molecule provides the glucuronide group taken out, and this reaction is usually mediated by the chemical β-glucuronidase; this enzyme may be the molecular target of D-glucaric acid's metabolite Glucaro-1, 4-lactone, which is a β-glucuronidase inhibitor having a Ki regarding 1. 6µM.

Inhibition associated with β-glucuronidase from glucaro-1, 4-lactone prevents removal of glucuronide groups and facilitates their particular removal from the physique.

Glucuronidation is a process by which a glucuronide group is added to a molecule and signals for said molecule to become passed via the kidneys (urinated). D-Glucaric acid, via their metabolite, inhibits the elimination of the glucuronide team and preserves/promotes excretion regarding any molecule that will be subject to glucuronidation
Endogenous substances that are known to be glucuronidated (and thus can potentially get their excretion improved by D-glucaric acid supplementation) include steroid hormones, and bilirubin.

Exogenous compounds that are at times termed as 'toxins' that could be glucuronidated include benzo(a)pyrene compounds, which are frequently found in cooked various meats products (usually those of which are smoked and charred). Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) may possibly also be glucuronidated.

Speeding up the process of glucuronidation can accelerate the removal of bilirubin and steroid hormones, and could increase the rate of elimination of different meat-based carcinogens manufactured in cooking food
β-glucuronidase also has their activity suppressed by calorie restriction.



Calcium D-glucarate might lower estrogen levels, and this is thought to be helpful in treating some people with hormone-dependent cancers. There isn't enough evidence to support the use of calcium D-glucarate for preventing cancer in humans.

Not enough Evidence for

  • Preventing breasts, prostate, and coloncancer.
  • Cleansing the body by removing carcinogens, toxins, and anabolic steroid hormones.
  • Other conditions.
  • Even more evidence is needed to be able to rate the effectiveness of calcium D-glucarate for these types of uses.
