TUDCA is short for tauroursodeoxycholic acid, which is a metabolite of the prescription drug ursodeoxycholic acid, or UDCA.
UDCA is prescribed for the treatment of cholestatic liver disease. And while UDCA is great for treating liver disease, you can’t get it without a prescription not to mention, it’ll cost you a fortune to get. That’s where TUDCA comes in. Because it’s a metabolite of UDCA, TUDCA gives you outstanding liver protection.
According to research, TUDCA may be just as powerful as UDCA in the treatment primary biliary cirrhosis. Research also suggests that TUDCA may assist the treatment of people with chronic hepatitis – something that traditional liver support supplements such as Milk Thistle and N-Acetyl Cysteine could never do! With TUDCA, you’re getting a product that may be just as potent without a prescription or the crazy price of UDCA.
Also of important to most bodybuilders today is the protection that TUDCA gives to those who have taken or are taking oral anabolic enhancement products. These products are notoriously harsh on your liver, and have been documented to cause liver failure on more than one occasion. Androgens also may send your LDL cholesterol skyrocketing. TUDCA combats this vicious cycle by aiding the production of bile. TUDCA supports bile flow to remove these toxic metabolites from the liver. In this way, TUDCA protects you against cholestasis to ensure cholesterol metabolism. So not only do you get liver protection, but you’ve got a built in cholesterol fighter when you take TUDCA!
If you´re serious about protecting your liver either from androgens or environmental factors, TUDCA should be the one and only product on your list.
