Calcium d-glucarate

by Annette

Wray I was wondering your thoughts on calcium d-glucarate removing progesterone as well. I'm having a hard time finding anything specific on this matter. The one thing I did find was a woman on calcium d-glucarate and progesterone found that the glucarate also lowered her progesterone from 8 to 6. I'm not wondering if that is the reason it is taking me so long to come right. I've been on 300 milligrams of the calcium d-glucarate all year long, sometimes more. I sure hope this isn't the case. Let me know your thoughts please Wray.

Calcium d-glucarate
by: Wray

Hi Annette Glucuronidation is one of the major detoxification pathways. It removes carcinogens, toxins, tumour promoters, the sex hormones ie, the androgens and oestrogens, mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids, aromatic and heterocyclic amines, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, various nitrosamines, drugs, fungi etc. The enzyme beta glucuronidase reverses the glucuronidation process. It breaks the glucoronide bond between a toxin and glucuronic acid, and releases carcinogens, toxins and excess steroid hormones back into circulation. Progesterone is not a sex hormone, it's not bound to glucuronic acid. I don't know where you found that info, but if from a blog, and not a study on progesterone, I'd be cautious about taking it at face value. I suggest you have a hair mineral analysis done, the best lab is Trace Elements. Often an excess or deficiency of one mineral can throw the body into turmoil. For instance excess calcium in ratio to magnesium causes depression, see here and here. Excess copper in ratio to zinc causes depression and psychotic behaviour, see here and here. Alternatively you could contact the Pfeiffer Treatment Center and have a full analysis done. They check urine, blood and hair for anomalies, a remarkable centre. Take care Wray

Does Calcium D Glucarate Remove Iron
by: Anonymous

Hi I am trying to find out if CDG removes iron andother minerals. I ask bc I have been bleeds non stop since October 2021 and severely anemic but overloaded with estrogen. I ake f ny bits of CDG now but seems to make me even more tired but i helps to cu b the blood flow somewhat. I also started Vit A which helps a bit too. Still bleeding but not flooding. Go for scans this week to see if I have some abno mailty like cysts r brod polyps or worse. Can I take CDG with progesterone? Joy was helping me in another threadbut thought I would lost here since it refers to CDG.

Does Calcium D Glucarate Remove Iron
by: Joy

I think perhaps you are getting a little confused between Calcium D Glucarate and calcium. Calcium D Glucarate is not calcium and does not have an affect of iron, but the nutrient calcium does. See here, here, here and here.

As there is not thread going on this, I can't remember what I advised you. You mention heavy bleeding, I would have advise what to do and what is needed. Please follow that advice the heavy bleeding protocol will help you greatly.

Good luck with your scans.
