Calcium D-Glucarate (CDG) is the newest supplement from Smoky Mountain Nutrition.
We're excited to add CDG to our lineup, and after you know what it can do, we think that you will be too. So here's what you need to know about this supplement and what it has to offer.
What Does CDG Do?
Our bodies regularly metabolize hormones as a part of normal fluctuation. When that happens, the excess hormone is sent through the digestive system for excretion.
Unfortunately, the processed hormone is often able to permeate the intestines and re-enter the bloodstream, effectively undoing the work of hormone metabolism.
Calcium D-Glucarate successfully prevents re-absorption by binding to the metabolized hormone preventing permeation of the digestive tract.
So why does it matter that metabolized hormones actually get excreted? ... Because there is a reason that our bodies metabolize them in the first place.
The hormones that end up in our digestive tracts have been designated for removal in order to maintain balance. When they are reabsorbed, the intended balance is subverted, or at least made more difficult.
With CDG, the body is able to achieve the attempted balance the first time around.
One of the most exciting aspects of Calcium D-Glucarate is the positive impact that it has on the liver.
The work of hormone removal and metabolism is done by the liver. So when hormones are reabsorbed after metabolism, the liver has to process them once again, doubling the work that needs to be done by this vital organ.
And it's not just metabolized hormones that Calcium D-Glucarate helps to expel from the body. CDG also binds to an array of chemicals and toxins that would otherwise be able to re-enter the bloodstream from the digestive tract.
To put it simply, CDG gives the liver a break.
The effect is pretty significant too. In fact, reduced hormone, toxin, and chemical processing allowed by CDG make it a great supplement for liver detoxification, and many people use this supplement for that purpose alone!
Perfect Partner for DIM
Diindolyl-Methane (DIM) is one of our favorite supplements, and perfect for estrogen balance.
It works by promoting the bodies metabolism of estrogen excesses, and is one of the most popular options available for Menopause, PCOS, Hormonal Acne, and Estrogen Dominance.
Anybody that is taking DIM should consider adding Calcium D-Glucarate as well. While DIM promotes the metabolism of excess estrogen, CDG makes sure the metabolized hormones are fully eliminated.
The pairing of these supplements is particularly powerful for achieving natural hormone/estrogen balance.
CDG has even been shown to reduce or eliminate the headache and fatigue that can accompany the first few days of supplementing with DIM. All the more reason to pair these two powerful supplements.
