Calcium D Glucarate & Test

Calcium d Glucarate is known for its anti-estrogenic properties. I’ve used it in the past and think it is a good supplement. [and a cheap one]. But I’ve recently heard some talk that it can also reduce ‘excess’ testosterone. Anyone know anything about this? Think it’s something to be concerned with?

Never heard that, and to be honest my understanding is that most of it’s activity occurs in the lumen of the intestine, mopping up excess estrogen. But I do take mine at different times from my dhea for concern of it binding up b-4 I can absorb it.
