Product Name: D-Glucurone
Appearance: White crystal or crystalline powder
D-Glucurono-γ-lactone, or in organic chemistry nomenclature, D-glucurono-3,6-lactone (henceforth referred to as DGL) is a natural metabolite of glucose and regulates the formation of glycogen. Its precursor, D-glucuronic acid (henceforth referred to as DGA) remains in an equilibrium state with glucuronolactone at physiological pH.
Uses: the main role is to enhance liver detoxification function, restore or improve brain function, regulate immune function
DGL is most likely hepatoprotective, meaning it will reduce ill effect or even improve the physical state and function of the liver. In a Chinese research study using an herbal concoction called gan-xian-fang, of which DGL is a component, they measured a marked improvement in patients with hepatic fibrosis resulted from hepatitis B4.
