Calcium-D-Glucarate is calcium bound to d-glucaric acid‚ which is a natural compound produced in small amounts by the human body and is abundantly found in various plant foods such as broccoli‚ cabbage‚ kale‚ apples‚ oranges‚ and grapefruit.
Research shows that d-glucaric acid derivatives such as calcium-d-glucarate help support the body’s natural elimination of excess steroid hormones and toxins. Calcium-d-glucarate assists in the detoxification process as it forms conjugates with unwanted estrogenic hormones and environmental toxins‚ which are then eliminated from the body instead of being reabsorbed.
D-glucarate is found in grapefruit, apples, oranges, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. D-glucarate supports the body’s cleansing system — a detoxification mechanism called glucuronidation.
