Tudca Sodium Salt
Tudca (Taurosodeoxycholic acid) is a water-soluble bile acid formed by combing Ursodeoxycholic Acid and Taurine. Ursodeoxycholic Acid is used in the treatment of a liver disorder called Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBC) which can cause serious harm if left untreated. It’s also worth noting that Tudca has shown to increase Ursodeoxycholic Acid levels in the body more so than Ursodeoxycholic Acid alone potentially due to the addition of Taurine as Taurine has excellent bioavailability.
- Tudca Increases Insulin Sensitivity: Because of its rumoured ability to burn fat, Tudca is often used as a weight loss drug or bodybuilding supplement. In a study, 20+ obese volunteers were administered 1,750mg of Tudca daily for 4 weeks which increased insulin sensitivity by 30% in muscle & liver tissue.
- Tudca Decreases Elevated Liver Enzymes: Two important liver enzymes Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) and Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) at high levels can indicate potential liver issues (i.e. Primary Biliary Cirrhosis) which destroys bile ducts. In one study done on 12 women with PBC over two months, Tudca reduced liver enzymes by over 51%
- Tudca supplementation may be neuroprotective & therapeutic: Although still very early days, research on Tudca has shown potential neuroprotective benefits as well as benefits for those suffering Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s Disease, and Prions. n a 2015 Canadian study published in the Journal of Virology, researchers examined the effect of Tudca on brain culture slices infected with Prions. What they discovered, was that Tudca may interfere with the seeding ability of Prions. This is of significance because Tudca is non-toxic and able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
The dosage of TUDCA supplementation you need will depend on the benefits you are seeking from its use.
The liver-protective benefits can be had for as little as 500mg/day, which the extrapolated numbers from an animal study show a 4,000mg dosage for neuroprotection from age-related memory loss and 1,750mg for muscular and liver insulin sensitivity.
