Beta-glucuronidase

Stool

A healthy result should fall into the range 368 - 6266 U/g.

Beta-glucuronidase is an enzyme produced by certain unfriendly gut bacteria. A proper balance of beta-glucuronidase is essential for good health and disease prevention.

What is Glucuronidation?

Glucuronidation is an essential detoxification proocess that inactivates and detoxifies hormones, neurotransmitters, drugs, mold toxins, and cancer-causing toxins.

Beta-glucuronidase result calculator

insert the value from you Beta-glucuronidase test result.

What does it mean if your Beta-glucuronidase result is too high?

High levels of beta glucuronidase inhibits this glucuronidation process to detoxify the body from both natural hormones (ex: estrogens) and various environmental toxins.

High levels of beta-glucuronidase in the stool can be caused by a number of factors which are primarily due to the following diet and lifestyle habits:

– High fat diet
– Processed food consumption
– Sugar consumption
– Alcohol consumption
– Smoking

Taking antibiotics can also increase beta-glucuronidase as antibiotics destroy gut bacteria.

The following cancers have been identified with high beta-glucuronidase levels:

– Colon cancer
– Prostate cancer
– Breast cancer

How to lower Beta-glucuronidase levels?

In order to maintain good health and to lower the risk of the above referenced cancers, it is important to keep beta-glucuronidase activity low but sufficient enough to assist in the nutrient absorption process. Adhering to a low fat, whole food plant-based diet could be an important step to decrease Beta-glucuronidase

There are also some specific natural substances that may lower Beta-glucuronidase:

– Apple Pectin
– Calcium, iron, magnesium
– Calcium-D-Glucarate
– Milk thistle (Silymarin)
– Cumin / black pepper
– Fenugreek Seeds
