The Role of Calcium D-Glucarate in Hormone Balance

If you have been following me, you might have seen the pre- and post-surgery protocol I created when facing a double hip replacement (on August 28, 2017). I shared my protocol so you don’t have to do the hours of research if facing any form of surgery.

Calcium D-Glucarate was one of the key stars in my protocol to detox my liver from the toxicity of the pre- and post-surgical medications and anesthesia.

And there is more.

This is How Calcium D-Glucarate Can Help You:

1. Removes the Harmful “Dirty Estrogens”

“Dirty estrogens” or the harmful metabolites of estrogen are responsible for conditions such as fibrocystic breasts, breast lumps, ER+ breast cancers, thyroid nodules, endometriosis, fibroids, infertility, mood swings, and PMS.

This research validates cancer prevention and estrogen metabolism.

2. Supports Liver Detox

Glucaric acid (which is what calcium d-glucarate is converted to) binds to toxins which are then removed in the urine. Removing toxins from the liver will increase liver function and promote a healthy metabolism.  It will also allow your liver to flush out other toxins that would otherwise cause problems.

How Calcium D-Glucarate can help you.

3. Boosts the Immune System

Furthermore, this study shows that calcium d-glucarate decreases inflammation by activating the immune system and increasing the activity of the anti-inflammatory cytokines.

4.  Lowers LDL (“bad”) Cholesterol

This study showed that the use of calcium d-glucarate lowers LDL cholesterol by 35%.

Our Wellena Calcium D-Glucarate is made with non-GMO ingredients. Free of gluten, dairy, soy, yeast, sugar, and colors. It contains no fillers and preservatives.

This Supplement is For You If:

  • You struggle with estrogen dominance (or symptoms such as fibrocystic breasts, breast lumps, ER+ breast cancers, thyroid nodules, endometriosis, fibroids, infertility, mood swings and PMS)
  • You have thyroid issues (low thyroid and/or Hashimoto’s)
  • You have been diagnosed with autoimmunity
  • You are preparing or underwent surgery with general anesthesia
  • You experience elevated LDL cholesterol
  • You have been drinking water from plastic bottles
  • You have been using many mass-market skincare and house-cleaning products (without realizing their toxicity)

Who Should Not Take Calcium D-Glucarate:

Calcium d-glucarate can speed up the metabolism of toxins as much as certain medications.

We therefore advise that if you are taking any medications, please speak to your doctor before taking calcium d-glucarate. Taking calcium d-glucarate along with medications changed by the liver might decrease the effectiveness of these medications.

According to WebMD, medications changed by the liver include acetaminophen (Tylenol, others), atorvastatin (Lipitor), diazepam (Valium), digoxin, entacapone (Comtan), estrogen, irinotecan (Camptosar), lamotrigine (Lamictal), lorazepam (Ativan), lovastatin (Mevacor), meprobamate, morphine, oxazepam (Serax), and others.

Other Compounds to Help Clear Estrogen

The other two supplements that help with clearing estrogen is DIM and Brocco Power.

DIM stands for di-indolyl methane which helps to quickly metabolize the “dirty” estrogens.

Sulforaphane, found in Brocco Power, supports the liver in quickly getting rid of the “dirty” estrogens.

Both these supplements work synergistically.

Which Estrogen Clearing Supplement to Take?

All these supplements support estrogen detoxification.

So which one do you pick?

It’s hard to determine because it depends on which body system isn’t working optimally in clearing estrogens.

My general guide is:

1.  If you have tried DIM and Brocco Power and are still symptomatic, add the Calcium D-Glucarate.

2.  If you have been exposed to many industrial, environmental or medical toxins (such as anesthesia), pick Calcium D-Glucarate.

3.  If you are new to estrogen dominance (symptoms such as fibrocystic breasts, breast lumps, ER+ breast cancers, thyroid nodules, endometriosis, fibroids, infertility, mood swings, and PMS), start with DIM and Brocco Power.
