Hawaiian Energy Shotz - D-Glucuronolactone

There’s a New Shot(z) Coming to Town.  Our detailed looked at the ingredients of Hawaiian Energy Shotz continues with a look at D-Glucuronolactone.  Glucorolactone is a natural metabolite found in our bodies, produced by the metabolization of glucose in the liver.  D-Glucuronolactone  - a carbohydrate your body uses for energy - has been found to boost workout performance, improve alertness, fight fatigue and promote a sense of well-being.  

Research indicates glucuronolactone can reduce sleepiness and boost energy, improve alertness and speed reaction time. Taken with caffeine and taurine (it is a precursor to taurine), Austrian researchers found that glucuronolactone has positive effects upon human mental performance.

D-Glucuronolactone is also believed by some researchers to support joint, tendon and ligament health.  Glucuronolactone is an essential component of connective tissues, a fibrous tissue occurring naturally in the body, it aids in repairing “broken” tissue caused by arthritis or heavy exercise.  

D-Glucuronolactone is directly involved in cleansing the liver through glucuronidation. It aids in the elimination of of various impurities.
