What is Glucuronidation(Phase II Detoxification)?
The body through enzymatic pathways processes xenobiotic and naturally occurring toxins. One of the most important such pathways is glucuronidation, in which UGT enzymes (uridine 5'-diphospho-glucuronosyltransferase) disables carcinogens by binding them to a molecule of glucuronic acid. This is an essential part of phase II detoxification. Via this process potential carcinogens will change to less damaging to the cells and leave the body. It also makes many such chemicals easier for the body to excrete through the urine or the bile. Glucuronidation can be undone by an enzyme known as beta glucuronidase. This enzyme frees up the original carcinogen from its glucuronic acid. Beta-glucuronidase is present in the cells and is also produced by some fecal bacteria. The activity of beta-glucuronidase increases with age.
D-glucarate is made in small amounts by the body but found mainly in foods like oranges and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli. Interestingly enough, such foods also contain other protecting nutrients, including glucoraphanin glucosinolate (SGS), IP6, DIM and I3C.
D-Glucarate contributes to less activity of the beta-glucuronidase enzyme in tissues all over the body, including key organs like the liver, spleen, breast, lung, and prostate resulting in higher net glucuronidation activity. This boost to your body's glucuronidation capacity.
D-Glucarate & Cancer:
Cancer causes disruption in D-Glucarate levels. Impaired glucuronidation has been linked to susceptibility to many cancers and other diseases in humans and in other species. Human research suggests that there are links between toxic environments, glucuronidation, beta-glucuronidase activity, and cancer and other diseases.
Milk thistle has been used in traditional medicine to help support general liver health and function and in conditions such as alcoholic cirrhosis, hepatitis, and fibrosis. It is known for protecting the liver and helping the liver self-regenerate after damage.
The liver has many functions, one of which is detox process which is more efficient when the liver is functioning optimally. Compromised liver function and detox process leads to toxic build-up in the body, causing illness and disease.
Silymarin’s Benefits for the Liver:
Silymarin is milk thistle’s main active ingredient, which is actually a group of flavonolignans called silybins. It acts as an antioxidant to help protect cells, especially liver cells, from free-radical damage and lipid peroxidation. It helps with DNA synthesis in hepatocytes, the liver cells for liver tissue repair and regeneration.
Milk thistle participates in modulation of pro-inflammatory signals and markers such as NF-kB. Silymarin assists in metal-chelating including iron and arsenic.
Silymarin benefits metabolic parameters such as cholesterol, LDL, blood sugar , triglycerides, HbA1c , and amyloid-beta plaque.
