Question: What are the benefits of calcium-d-glucarate?
Answer: Calcium-d-glucarate is a form of glucaric acid (a naturally occurring substance found in certain fruits and vegetables). It is this glucaric acid portion of the compound (and not the calcium portion -- which is only 12% the compound's weight) which appears to be responsible for its activity. Although it has been promoted for "detoxifying" effects, as well as for lowering estrogen levels and preventing cancer growth, these applications are, for the most part, suggested only by laboratory and animal studies, not clinical studies in people.
