I Am Thinking About Quitting Calcium-D-Glucarate
Since 1 year I am taking 1500 mg Calcium D-Glucarate a day (recently reduced to 1000 mg to save money as the stuff is expensive). I am thinking about quitting it completely.
Dave claims that "it can fight cancer, decrease LDL cholesterol, assist in protein digestion,
and remove toxins and excess estrogen". However http://examine.com/supplements/Calcium-D-Glucarate/ shows that I would need at least 7000 mg of the stuff to get the anti-cancer benefits, and I am already spending 25 USD a month on CDG, there is no way I am gonna spend 200 bucks a month for this "cancer insurance". So if I am not getting the benefits because dose is too small, then I am wasting 25 USD a month, right?
Furthermore on http://examine.com/supplements/Calcium-D-Glucarate/ we read that "all steroid hormones in the body (testosterone, estrogen, Serum DHEA, etc.) are also glucuronidated. If using an oral dose that reduces the toxin, these hormones will also all be reduced for a short time." and "Using calcium-D-glucarate as a daily preventative supplement does not appear to be a prudent idea, due to its lack of reliability even in theory and high doses used."
So it not only reduces estrogen, but testosterone too? Mine is already low, and I thought CDG will help me raise it. Anyway the reduction of estrogen was in a study on rats, and the reduction was only 23% anyway, with a huge dose of CDG, equivalent to 78 grams in a human. 2000 USD a month on CDG anyone?
Is there any proven benefit to taking 1000 mg a month (so much I can afford), and where is the proof that I am not just producing expensive piss?
