Calcium D-Glucarate is the Calcium salt of D-Glucarate, a natural substance found in fruits and vegetables such as apples, grapefruits, broccoli and alfalfa sprouts.
Calcium D-Glucarate is an effective cancer preventing and cholesterol-lowering substance.
It is thought that some of the anti-cancer, detoxification properties of fresh fruits and vegetables comes from their d-glucarate content. The reason is that this substance promotes glucuronidation. Glucuronidation is a liver function that binds to carcinogens and removes them from the system. This process is blocked by a substance called glucuronidase. Glucuronidase is, in turn, blocked by d-glucarate. Normally, d-glucarate does this for an hour or so. Making it into a Calcium salt extends its action to 5 hours. The net result is that the body removes caarcinogens and the chances of developing a cancerous tumor become much less.
In one experiment, rats given anthracene (a carcinogen) normally develop breast cancer quite quickly. When pretreated with Calcium D-Glucarate the tumor development was blocked in 70% of the animals. Subsequent experiments showed that it could also decrease the proliferation of tumors once they were established.
More experiments established that it was effective against a wide variety of carcinogens and tumors such as breast, prostate, lung and colon cancers.
Calcium D-Glucarate may be a wise choice for those exposed to carcinogens or with a family history of cancer development.
Other animal experiments showed that Calcium D-Glucarate lowers total cholesterol by 13 to 15 percent and LDL (the bad kind) by from 30 to 35%.
No side effects have been noted and it is regarded as having little or no toxicity.
