Calcium D-Glucarate is a supplement that blocks or inhibits the activity of an enzyme in the gut called beta-glucuronidase. By doing this, it helps your body to eliminate excess estrogens and androgens like testosterone or fat soluble toxins from the body and helps to ensure that they get eliminated through the stool instead of being reabsorbed back into the system.

Most people of age are deficient in testosterone. I can’t see why you would want something that could clear that along with estrogen and toxins. How about progesterone, another good steroid, does that get cleared as well?
From Lauren Loya MD: Calcium D Glucarate inactivates a certain enzyme in the gut that can cause hormones, particularly estrogens to be reabsorbed back into the bloodstream. It won’t lower hormone levels internally, only ensure that the hormones the body has processed are eliminated vs re-entering the body to cause elevated levels.
