Calcium D-glucarate is a supplement that your body converts to glucaric acid, an active chemical in your intestine that supports the liver. Calcium D-glucarate works in conjunction with an enzyme in the intestine, beta-glucaronidase, and the liver’s detoxification process. Calcium D-glucarate is used for preventing breast, prostate, and colon cancer; and for removing cancer-causing agents, toxins, and steroid hormones from the body.

Calcium D-Glucarate binds with toxins, carcinogens, and used hormones in the liver, thus making them more easily removed from the body. Specifically, it allows the body to excrete used hormones, such as estrogen, before they can become reabsorbed. Large doses of Calcium-D-Glucarate have been shown to lower serum estrogen levels in rats by 23 percent. Studies are showing a beneficial connection between calcium d-glucarate and estrogen receptors.
