What is a high THC-COOH level in urine?
The presence of THC-COOH in urine greater than 100 ng/mL indicates relatively recent use, probably within the past 7 days. Levels greater than 500 ng/mL suggest chronic and recent use.
What is THC-COOH glucuronide?
11-Nor-9-carboxy-Δ9-THC glucuronide is a major urinary metabolite of Δ9-THC. This certified Snap-N-Spike® reference solution is suitable for numerous GC/MS or LC/MS applications from pharmaceutical testing and research to clinical toxicology or forensic analysis.
How can I increase my glucuronidation?
- Citrus Fruits: limonene from the peels of oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit and believed to induce UGT activity.
- Cruciferous vegetables.
- Dandelion, rooibos, honeybush, and rosemary tea.
- Astaxanthin found in algae, yeast, trout, krill, shrimp, and crayfish.
Do cats need digestive enzymes?
Cats need digestive enzymes from both sources to help the body function at its optimal level. Unfortunately, commercial cat foods do not contain digestive enzymes. This is because they’re ‘killed’ when the food is processed, so any food you feed your cat from a bag or can is void of these essential nutrients.
What enzymes do cats need?
The protease enzyme is released to break down proteins, lipase to digest fats, and amylase for starches. When your cat is lacking in these three digestive enzymes, the food eaten will not be properly absorbed into the body.
Why is my beta-glucuronidase high?
– High levels of fecal beta-glucuronidase can indicate unfavorable changes in the colon. Evidence of increased enzymatic activity of intestinal microorganisms may suggest increased risk of digestive tract cancer.
What nutrients support glucuronidation?
There are 6-8 conjugation pathways: Glucuronidation pathway involves the enzyme glucuronyl transferase for conjugating alcohols, phenols and carboxylic acids. Nutrients required are magnesium, B vitamins and glucuronic acid.
How do you fix high B glucuronidase?
If you know you need to decrease your levels of beta-glucuronidase, you can do so by establishing a healthy gut microbiome and eating a diet high in glucuronic acid. Glucuronic acid is high in foods such as apples, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce and oranges.
What is faecal B glucuronidase?
β-glucuronidase is an enzyme that plays a role in phase 2 liver detoxification, oestrogen metabolism, and carbohydrate digestion. It is produced by us – the host – as well as Escherichia coli, Bacteroides spp. and Clostridium perfringens.
