Tauroursodeoxycholic acid, more commonly referred to as TUDCA, is a bile salt that is found naturally occurring in the body. When regular bile salts reach the intestines, they can be metabolized by bacteria into UDCA and then later bound to a Taurine molecule to become TUDCA. TUDCA is a water-soluble bile salt, which is in contrast to regular bile salts possessing both water soluble and fat soluble ends and conferring a detergent effect.
TUDCA is a bile acid that helps with liver and gallbladder issues. Research has found that it may also help protect the brain and improve eye health.
Nutricost Tudca uses synthetic Tudca and not bile that has been extracted by an extremely inhumane process from bears. There is 250mg of Tudca per capsule (bovine derived gelatin) and 30 to 60 capsules per bottle depending on the size option. All Nutricost products undergo testing by independent iso-accredited laboratories to insure quality and safety.
