A professional supplement that helps to support glucuronidation, a liver detoxification pathway.
Calcium D-glucarate is made from calcium and glucaric acid which can be found in the human body as well as in fruits and vegetables such as oranges, apples, brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cabbage.
In a 2002 report published in Alternative Medicine Review investigators analyzed the available research on calcium-D-glucarate and found that it may lower estrogen and inhibit beta-glucuronidase, an enzyme associated with increased risk for various hormone-dependent cancers, such as breast, prostate, and colon when it occurs at elevated levels.1 It is believed to remove cancer-causing agents, toxins, and steroid hormones from the body.
A 2007 study published in Oncology Letters determined that calcium D-glucarate may help fight lung cancer.3 In tests on mice, researchers found that calcium D-glucarate helped inhibit the growth of cancerous tumors in the lungs by curbing inflammation and inducing apoptosis (a type of programmed cell death essential for stopping the proliferation of cancer cells).
There's also some evidence that calcium D-glucarate may protect against skin cancer. 4 For example, a 2007 study published in the Journal of Environmental Pathology, Toxicology, and Oncology found that treating mice with calcium D-glucarate helped suppress the development of skin cancer by inducing apoptosis.
Although calcium D-glucarate shows promise as an anti-cancer agent, more research including human trials is required.
