Glucuronolactone is naturally occuring in the body as a by product of liver glucose metabolism. Glucuronolactone is included in many energy drinks and is in some other energy supplements as well.

Glucuronolactone has been claimed to increase energy and elevate mood. Glucuronolactone has also been claimed to detoxify the body, the liver in particular. There is not really much if any research available that actually evaluates the effect of glucuronolactone alone on energy and mood. Still, anecdotal evidence is positive and supports the use of glucuronolactone for energy and feelings of well-being. Glucuronolactone that occurs naturally in the body plays a role in the regulation of glycogen (stored carbohydrate) synthesis, which may play a role in the energy boosting effect of glucuronolactone.

Although the claims associated with glucuronolactone are not very substantiated, it continues to be a popular ingredient in energy supplements, especially energy drinks. Glucuronolactone is also available in capsules or powder.
