Source Naturals Calcium d-glucarate
Calcium d-glucarate is a compound of calcium and glucuronic acid, which can be produced by the body, but only in small quantities. Most of it is located in the liver where it is part of the process of the second stage of detoxification in the liver called glucuronidation.
Source Naturals uses only the best and patented formula of Calcium d-glucarate in its supplements.
Glucuronidation and Detoxification
Calcium d-glucarate acts as a inhibitor (inhibitor) of beta-glukoronidase, an enzyme that affects glucuronidation. Glucuronidation is a process of detoxification in which the glucuronide is attached to a hydrofobic molecule to make it more water soluble, thus making it easier to remove it from the body. The process is promoted by the enzyme Glucuronosyltransferase and inhibited by beta-glucuronidase.
