Calcium D-glucarate is the calcium salt of D-glucaric acid, a natural
substance found in many fruits and vegetables.
How It Works
How to Use It
Manufacturers of calcium D-glucarate recommend a daily intake of 200 to 400 mg.
Where to Find It
Calcium D-glucarate is available in capsules and tablets. Foods high in glucaric acid (a form of calcium D-glucarate) include apples, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, and bean sprouts.1
Calcium D-glucarate is not an essential nutrient, and thus no deficiency state exists.
Interactions with Supplements, Foods, & Other Compounds
Although there are no known drug interactions, many drugs (especially hormones) are metabolized in the liver by binding to glucuronic acid. It is therefore possible that taking calcium D-glucarate could increase the elimination of certain drugs or hormones from the body, thereby reducing their effectiveness. If you are taking any prescription medication, please consult your physician or pharmacist before taking calcium D-glucarate.
