TUDCA (Tauroursodeoxycholic acid) is a bile salt that is found naturally in the body. When normal bile salts reach the intestines, they can be metabolized by bacteria and bound to a taurine molecule to become TUDCA.
TUDCA is known to help Cholestasis which is a bile acid back up in the liver. It competes with the toxicity and protects the cells from dying. Livers which have been harmed by excessive amounts of alcohol can be treated with this as TUDCA is great for protecting an already harmed liver. It also helps with blood glucose and insulin sensitivity, it has been shown to improve insulin signalling in the liver and muscle tissue, which would be good for people with Diabetes. TUDCA has also shown to aid in fat loss and help neutralize weight in both males and females.
