Best for liver TUDCA

TUDCA (tauroursodeoxycholic acid) is a unique bile acid found in small amounts in the overall composition of bile. It has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years as a digestive aid and liver support, and now we can produce it as a supplement.

TUDCA’s many benefits include digestive support (especially for fats), promoting liver and kidney function, brain health, cellular support, and eye health.

What is TUDCA?
TUDCA is a bile acid derivative that occurs naturally in the body. Like many compounds in your body, TUDCA is made through a microbial process.

The Role of TUDCA in the Body

TUDCA is a bile acid — but what does that mean? Bile represents a complex fluid made of bile acids, phospholipids, cholesterol, water, electrolytes, and other organic molecules. Bile acids are the most functional component of bile. They help us digest and absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, break down food and cholesterol, and destroy harmful pathogens that enter the digestive system on our food.* Through these processes, bile helps the body eliminate waste, excrete unnecessary cholesterol, and regulate your metabolism. In particular, bile acids convert and eliminate around 500 mg of cholesterol from the body every day.

How is bile produced? The liver produces bile, which is concentrated and stored in the gallbladder, then secreted into the digestive system via the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine beyond the stomach). Bile travels through the digestive system until it is recycled and sent back to the liver once it reaches the ileum. Only 5% is excreted, the rest is recycled and repackaged as “new” bile in the liver. This process is known as enterohepatic circulation.

TUDCA has been used therapeutically in traditional Chinese medicine for millennia, particularly for hepatic and biliary disorders. Namely, traditional medical practitioners prescribe TUDCA to help detoxify the liver, treat “heat illnesses” such as fever, spasms, and vision problems, and improve many other conditions.

10 TUDCA Benefits

Bile in general plays many roles in the body. From aiding in digestion to maximizing vitamin absorption or eliminating waste, bile acids support a wide range of functions.

TUDCA is a bile acid that performs its job exceptionally well. Though humans only produce a small amount of it, the benefits of TUDCA are varied and widespread.

Brain function
Liver health
Kidney health
Eye Health
Cellular health
Gut microbiome
Bile flow

1. Brain Health
TUDCA may be a good fit if you’re looking to support memory and cognitive function.* TUDCA crosses the blood-brain barrier and has become a promising subject in the scientific community for its protective effects on the brain.*

2. Supports Insulin Sensitivity*
43% reduction in blood glucose when treated with TUDCA.

TUDCA supports healthy blood sugar levels and supports insulin sensitivity.*

3. Mitochondria and Cellular Support
Every single one of your cells has little power plants inside them called mitochondria. These tiny organelles generate roughly 90 percent of our body’s energy. When our mitochondria aren’t functioning properly, we aren’t able to make adequate amounts of ATP, our energetic building blocks.
TUDCA sparks the cells to make more mitochondria.*

4. Supports Genetic Expression
Amazingly, TUDCA may even impact your gene expression and DNA in certain ways. By reducing oxidative damage, stimulating mitochondrial function, and regulating apoptosis, TUDCA can also protect your DNA from damage.*

5. Liver Health
TUDCA supports overall liver health.* A study was conducted on a group of people suffering from liver cirrhosis and high liver enzymes, who were given 750 milligrams (mg) of TUDCA for six months. TUDCA lowered one hundred percent of the participants’ liver enzymes.* As a bonus, supplementing with this bile acid was very well tolerated amongst the study participants, with no participants experiencing any side effects.

Can TUDCA reverse fatty liver? No.

6. Supports a Healthy Gut Microbiome.

7. Kidney Protection
Studies show that TUDCA supports a healthy inflammation response in the kidneys.*

8. Defends Against Pathogens
TUDCA has been shown in studies to support a healthy immune response, particularly in response to certain viral infections.*

9. Eye Health
TUDCA supports eye health and protects against a number of eye health complications, as well as reduces the number of dysfunctional eye cells.

10. Bile Flow Support

First step is to make a liver-Gallbladder cleanse with Olive oil and grapefruit juice as I have described before in my blog. To get rid of the gallbladder and liver stones.

Second step you do a liver cleanse with cleaning the blood vessels from the liver with milk thistle.

The third step is to take TUDCA
Take 2 times/per day and after 1 to 3 hours of consuming food.
If you eat easy-to-digest food you take after 1 hour Tudca and heavy-to-digest food after 3 hours. Because Tudca interferes with digestion when we take it with food or too early after consuming food.

Never more than 1700mg.
The normal dose is 15mg-20mg/1kg body weight.
