Molecular Structure



Calcium D-Glucarate is a chemical which 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, and is often used for health and pharmaceutical purposes.

Calcium D-Glucarate supports cellular health, provides antioxidant protection and is used to aid with detoxification in the body.
