    .......... and so increases the body’s retention of estrogen, which in turn impairs the thyroid gland’s ability to secrete thyroid hormone."

    The above is a quote from Dr Peat.
    So, is there something we can do to aid the liver to attach the glucuronic acid?

    Supplementing thyroid and progesterone I would guess. Eating enough sugar & protein might help too.

    I was actually thinking about the exact same thing for the last two days.
    I am taking progesterone, it treats me really well but it makes gain estrogenic fat around the mid section . Tca300 quoted peat saying that progesterone would not do sth like this (estrogenic thing) IF thyroid, liver and kidneys were working good.
    But that's a big If in my case ...

    So I digged deeper into glucorodnidation and I found a substance that is in many energy drinks : glucuronolactone .
    I don't know if it's superior to plain glucuronic acid but I think those molecules are both pretty similar .

    My hope is that it might help with glucuronidation of estrogen .

    I found an interesting study on that subtstacne . Let me quote a little part :

    "
    This report was summarized as follows : the toxic (amine-like) substance in a living
    body increased due to physical exercise, and resulted in fatigue. The glucuronic acid
    content of urine, serum, liver and kidney, and the hepatic glycogen content of a living body
    decreased. The activity of o-aminophenylglucuronide synthesis of rat's liver was inhibit
    ed after hard physical exercise. However, these phenomena were significantly blocked
    by the administration of glucuronolactone. The arrest of an isolated frog heart due to
    the accumulation of toxic substance was checked, both prophylactically and therapeu
    tically, by the administration of glucuronolactone."
    EFFECTS OF GLUCURONOLACTONE AND THE OTHER CARBOHYDRATES ON THE BIOCHEMICAL CHANGES PRODUCED IN THE LIVING BODY OF RATS BY HARD EXERCISE


    You can simply buy it in bulk form on sites like bulk bulkpowders.com and it's really not dangerous or anything so I think I will give it a try for liver health.

    Another quote from peat :"The main way they [PUFA] are detoxified is by attaching glucuronic acid, making them water soluble, so they leave in the urine"

    "[Is glucuronolactone safe?] I think it is, if it's from a reliable source."

    There's also Calcium D-Glucarate. Downside is that your liver liver will not only glucuronidate the bad stuff, but also helpful steroids like DHT etc. (I think haidut said that)

    Apples have a lot of glucarate, as do potatoes and oranges. I think this is another reason why orange juice is so often suggested.

    I've ordered the glucuronolactone now I'll give it a shot. There's no one around who has tried it so far . So I'll make myself the Guinea pig .

    Good. Let,s hope you get some positive changes from the stuff and share with us. Thanks.

    I've actually tried it. Didn't go down that well with me but I don't respond well to calcium supplements, so it could have been the calcium that was the issue. I've heard of people taking huge doses - 2-4 grams per day - and doing well with it.

    Misread your previous comment. Assumed you were talking about calcium d-glucarate sorry.

    It was calcium d-glucarate, and it was some of Garrett Smith's clients + other people on Grant Genereux's forum.

    So glucuronolactone gave me fuller muscles and more stable mood . And a bit hypoglycemia if not taken with sugar which is expectable if it increases glycogen ...
    Downsides was it gave me dark circles but on the other hand any things do that .
