Calcium D-Glucarate is the calcium salt produced from the naturally occurring compound glucaric acid which is commonly found in fruits such as oranges, grapefruits, and apples. It is known to help inhibit some toxic substances’ effect on the liver, aid in management of chemotherapy symptoms, as well as showing potential to help prevent major diseases such as colon, ovarian, breast, and other hormone Dependant cancers such as prostate cancer. Calcium D-Glucarate is considered to be a more bio-available oral form of the glucaric acid compound, acting as a powerful β-glucuronidase inhibitor. This compound is currently being researched for several medical and dietary applications, and is available for purchase without prescription in the United States as a dietary supplement. (1)
Calcium D-Glucarate is a very close associate of glucaric acid, and is widely-understood to have powerful anti-oxident, detoxification, as well as preventative powers towards our health. While the exact methods and motus operandi of Calcium D-Glucarate have yet to be fully-understood, researchers have been furthering our understanding constantly. A better understanding of several compounds related to Calcium D-Glucarate and it’s action within our bodies, you will be able to decide if it may benefit you.
Also known as Saccarhic Acid, Glucaric Acid is formed naturally by the oxidation of glucose with nitric acid. (2) This naturally-occurring compound is found in many fruits, as well as being naturally-produced in humans and mammals. Research has shown that this potentially cancer-preventative compound is commonly found in grapes, broccoli, apples, lettuce, and several other fruits mostly of the citrus variety. Apples for example, contain 3.5 grams of glucaric acid per measured kilogram (3). It’s always enlightening to understand the basis for such common phrases as “an apple a day—keeps the doctor away!”
Often written as β-Glucuronidase, this compound is a …
