According to a report conducted by the US back in 2010, the US imported or produced 74 billion pounds of chemicals a day. This equates to 200 pounds per person per day. Since then, it is estimated that this amount per person has almost doubled. Whether these toxins are found in personal care products, air pollution, agricultural pesticides, plastics, or drinking water, we encounter harmful toxins every day. The only way to eliminate many of these chemicals from our body is to change their shape so they can be excreted. This process is often called “detoxification.” One of the most common paths of detoxification is called glucuronidation.
Our body goes through an important process called glucuronidation that detoxes harmful toxins. During glucuronidation, glucuronic acid binds to the toxin. With Seeking Health’s Calcium D-Glucarate supplement, calcium acts as a stabilizing salt to support glucaric acid in supplement form.†
Conventional meat, air pollution, and plastics are all examples of ways that you can be exposed to toxins. Let’s look at plastic as an example. Plastic contains many harmful chemicals most people do not know about. BPA is a commonly known toxin that’s been touted regularly in the media over the past decade.
In the example above, with the body’s natural detoxification process, glucuronic acid would attach to BPA, making it water soluble in preparation for elimination. Once the glucuronic acid is attached, the newly shaped BPA can easily travel from the bile into the intestines. While passing through the intestines, it meets trillions of microbes. Some of these produce Beta Glucuronidase which is an enzyme that helps break glucuronic acid from BPA. BPA then floats freely and without glucuronic acid present, the BPA has a chance of reabsorbing back into the body. This process can be applied to all toxins, including natural substances made by the body that could become toxins without healthy excretion. These include certain steroid hormones like cholesterol and estrogen.
Calcium D-Glucarate was designed to work opposite of the activities of the Beta Glucuronidase enzyme produced in the gut. This helps support the body’s natural detoxification process, ensuring that a multitude of potentially problematic toxins are safely detoxed through the digestive tract.†
