Tauroursodeoxycholic acid (TUDCA) is a bile salt found naturally in the body. It has hydrophilic properties and is thus characterised by very good solubility in water.
TUDCA is targeted at improving the flow of bile and promoting its production. What is more, it protects hepatocytes (liver cells) and cholangiocytes (epithlial cells of the bile duct) against harmful effects of toxins and promotes their efficient regeneration.
TUDCA supplementation is recommended mainly to promote the treatment of disorders of the liver and bile duct accompanied by cholestasis. In addition, it may be a perfect solution for individuals who want to improve detoxification and liver regeneration, e.g. caused by alcoholism or anabolic agents and hepatotoxic medicines.
