As an antidote, D-Glucuronolactone can combine poisons in the liver and intestines into nontoxtic glucuronic acid combination. Having functions of liver protection and detoxification, D-Glucuronolactone is usually used in hepatitis, cirrhosis, or food poisoning. As a food additive, D-Glucuronolactone is an essential food ingredient in our food supply. As a leading food additives and food ingredients supplier in China, we can provide you with high quality D-Glucuronolactone.Glucuronolactone is rapidly absorbed and metabolised into non-toxic metabolites such as xylulose. In addition, humans may be able to use glucuronolactone as a precursor for Ascorbic Acid synthesis.According to "The Merck Index", it is also used as a detoxicant.Glucuronolactone is a popular ingredient in energy drinks with claims that it detoxifies the body. Although levels of glucuronolactone in energy drinks can far exceed those found in the rest of the diet, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has concluded that exposure to glucuronolactone from regular consumption of energy drinks is not a safety concern (No Observed Adverse Effect Level of glucuronolactone = 1,000mg/kg/day). Fatality was reported after intake of 1420 ml of an energy drink
