TUDCA | Liver Support & Digestion Aid
Tudca is a bile acid naturally formed in the body that supports the digestion and utilization of fats and oils and demonstrates neuroprotective benefits*
TUDCA supports digestive ability by supporting healthy fat metabolism and breakdown as well as proper nutrient absorption. It is also supportive to cellular and mitochondrial health.
However, the human body only produces small amounts of TUDCA (or tauroursodeoxycholic acid). In a healthy person, digestion re-circulates some 95% of the body’s bile salts. But poor diet, decreased liver function, and certain medications can impair this process. This is where supplementation is key.
What’s the recommended TUDCA dosage?
Recommended dosage is take 2 capsules per day or use as directed. 1750 mg is the tolerable upper limit for most and can be used as a therapeutic dose for as long as one month. TUDCA is suitable for those without a gallbladder. Use of 500 mg daily for one year in persons with liver transplants is not associated with any adverse effects. Persons with primary biliary cirrhosis have used 750 mg daily for eight weeks and 1,500 mg daily for six months with no adversity (Invernizzi, 1999).
