Glucuronolactone is a natural substance produced in the body during glucose metabolism. It’s also found in some plants. In addition to its energizing properties, glucuronolactone is a constituent of the connective tissues throughout our bodies.
Various studies have investigated products containing glucuronolactone on physical performance. Research suggests that glucuronolactone can help promote energy and endurance while supporting rebound and recovery after exertion. And it’s not just physical—studies suggest that glucuronolactone, alone and in combination with caffeine, promotes mental performance and positive mood as well.
It has been reported that not only does glucuronolactone help to improve physical performance, there is also evidence to suggest it helps to increase mental performance. When given an energy drink containing glucuronolactone, it has been shown that studied subjects showed significant improvements in reaction time, concentration, and memory.
