The liver is the body’s natural filter, everything you ingest passes through your liver and it filters toxins to protect your body. As resilient as the liver is, it isn’t invincible. Without proper care liver damage and diseases like cholestasis, non-fatty liver diseases or cirrhosis can occur.
How do liver damage and diseases occur?
Bile acids or on a more technical level steroid carboxylic acids derived from cholesterol are produced in the liver, stored in the gallbladder and ultimately released into the intestine. They serve a critical role in the digestion of fats, removal of toxins and serve as metabolic signals, relating to liver function and insulin sensitivity. Bile Acids are produced as both water-soluble and fat-soluble forms.
When the liver produces bile acids at higher concentrations and back up occurs in the liver, it can become toxic and damaging to cells, ultimately leading to cell death. Steroids, alcohol abuse, poor diet, the use of over the counter (OTC) drugs, even herbal supplements can elevate concentrations of bile acid and promote these issues.
How do you protect yourself?
Premium TUDCA from Olympus Labs is the best option for optimal liver health! TUDCA
(or Tauroursodeoxycholic acid) is a water-soluble bile acid that can counteract the toxicity of regular bile acids and thus indirectly protect cells from death. TUDCA attacks these issues two-fold, firstly TUDCA improves the ratio of water-soluble to fat-soluble acids which protects cells from damage. Secondly, TUDCA can directly reduce stress to liver cells Endoplasmic Reticulum, this mechanism is implicated to many of its beneficial protective effects. The human body produces trace amounts of TUDCA naturally in the intestines through gut bacteria metabolism, however supplementation is required to adequately protect your liver.
