The Research and Science Behind Glucuronolactone

Updated on March 23, 2015

Glucuronolactone is a naturally occurring chemical that is an important structural component of nearly all connective tissues. The ingredient has decades of history and usage. Studies, all the way back from the 1960s, have shown that Glucuronolactone might have performance-enhancing properties. Later, this made sense because glucuronolactone inhibits the enzyme B-glucuronidase, which means higher blood-glucuronides. This helps remove toxins from the body, which is why Glucuronolactone is a detoxicant according to The Merck Index. As a performance-enhancing, all-natural, detoxifying ingredient, Glucuronolactone is an obvious choice for increasing productivity.



Urban Legends and Myths

Glucuronolactone received notoriety due to urban legends (complete lies) that it was a Vietnam War -era performance enhancing drug manufactured by the American government. The rumor goes on to state that it was banned due to related deaths. This urban legend and rumor is completely false.



The Japanese Continue Research into Glucuronolactone: Surprising New Discoveries

Following the successful discoveries of the previous experiment, Japanese scientists compared the performance-enhancing effect of glucuronolactone with that of stimulants such as caffeine and amphetamines in a similar way as the previous experiment. The resulting conclusion was extremely interesting. During that experiment they discovered that stimulants only improved endurance capacity during the first session of physical exertion, while glucuronolactone had an effect during the second and third sessions, which caffeine and amphetamines in the test did not (keep in mind that Glucuronolactone isn't a stimulant!). You can read the full study yourself through The U.S. National Library of Medicine . By adding Glucuronolactone into the Limidax XR study-aid pill, we are able to help provide improvements in productivity in multiple sessions over a long period of time. Our premium Green Tea Extract, Microencapsulated Caffeine, and Glucuronolactone provide the best study-aid blend.

The Initial Research into Glucuronolactone

In the 1960s, scientists began doing a lot of research on glucuronolactone. They discovered that during long-term and intensive exercise, all types of toxic waste products begin to circulate through the body. Ex-vivo studies showed that the build-up of such toxic wastes could stop the heart of lab animals from beating. Scientists found that administering glucuronolactone was able to save the lives of the animals, or (in the severe trials) keep the animals alive for a longer period of time. This research was picked up by the Japanese and expanded upon (see below).

The Japanese Research into Glucuronolactone: Perfomance-Enhancing Properties Discovered

The Japanese began to wonder whether glucuronolactone may have performance-enhancing properties. They gave glucuronolactone, glucose, galactose, glycogen, and several other compounds to lab rats, and waited 30 minutes before having the rats swim. Glucuronolactone beat out all the other compounds, by having the rats swim the longest in the 1st swim, 2nd swim, and 3rd swim consecutively.
