#3077795 Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

Posted by iRyRy on 07 May 2011 - 11:32 AM

I'm in the same boat. I'm motivated to repair my body and have done a lot of research in the past months. I have info to share:

Calcium D-Glucarate: To eliminate toxins (including retinoids) your liver combines glucuronic acid with the toxin to make it more water soluble. This process is called glucuronidation. However, there is an enzyme in our bodies that reverse the effects of glucuronidation and thus separates the two molecules. This is called beta-glucuronidase. Calcium D-Glucarate is known to inhibit this enzyme, and thus limit beta-glucuronidase greatly increasing elimination of toxins.

I'm going to pick some up later and see how that helps. People with long term affects often are shown to have high levels of vitamin A even years after treatment. So, I've been focussing on keeping my digestive system running smoothly and improving my liver function.
