    CALCIUM D-GLUCARATE Overview Information

    Calcium D-glucarate is a chemical. It is similar to a naturally occurring chemical called glucaric acid. Glucaric acid is found in our bodies as well as in fruits and vegetables such as oranges, apples, brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cabbage. Calcium D-glucarate is made by combining glucaric acid with calcium to make supplements that people use for medicine.

    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.

    How does it work?

    Calcium D-glucarate might lower estrogen levels, and this is thought to be helpful in treating some people with hormone-dependent cancers. There isn't enough evidence to support the use of calcium D-glucarate for preventing cancer in humans.

    CALCIUM D-GLUCARATE Uses & Effectiveness What is this?

    Insufficient Evidence for:

    • Preventing breast, prostate, and coloncancer.
    • Detoxifying the body by removing carcinogens, toxins, and steroid hormones.
    • Other conditions.
    More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of calcium D-glucarate for these uses.


    CALCIUM D-GLUCARATE Side Effects & Safety

    There isn't not enough information to know if calcium D-glucarate is safe or what the potential side effects might be.

    Special Precautions & Warnings:

    Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of calcium D-glucarate during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
