Calcium D-glucarate is a substance produced naturally in small amounts by humans, which has been shown to prevent recycling of hormones and environmental toxins, promoting liver detoxification and excretion of these potentially detrimental substances.
Glucuronidation is the normal process in the liver of attaching a glucuronic acid molecule to substances for detoxification and elimination from the body. During phase II liver detoxification, toxic chemicals, steroid hormones, and other fat-soluble toxins undergo glucuronidation and are then excreted through the bile or urine. Calcium D-glucarate supports this elimination process.
Thorne Research's calcium D-glucarate also contains milk thistle extract (standardized to 70% silybin). It provides hepatoprotection due to its potent antioxidant effects.
Other applications of calcium D-glucarate include the maintenance of already normal cholesterol levels and support for healthy hormone metabolism.
