THAT MAY SUPPORT CELL REGENERATION, IMPROVE NUTRIENT
ABSORPTION AND SUPPORT INSULIN SENSITIVITY.
The liver is the workhorse of the digestive system that is tasked with performing some 500 functions that help keep the body healthy. TUDCA has been shown to improve liver healing rates in both steatotic and non-steatotic livers via ER stress reduction. TUDCA has also been found to support healthy liver enzymes.
TUDCA can cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and has been shown to possess cytoprotective properties through the inhibition of apoptosis and regulation of cellular redox thresholds.†
TUDCA is also shown to reduce the distress of mitochondrial function and structure induced by amyloid β-peptide (a protein that appears to play a central role in the pathology of degenerative diseases.)
Bile acids are compounds released from the gallbladder that help digest fats†
Research indicates TUDCA may be particularly useful for combating the backup of bile acid in the liver (cholestasis) as the water-soluble bile acids may counteract the toxicity of regular bile acids.†
TUDCA has also been studied for its ameliorating effects on inflammatory metabolic diseases, including atherosclerosis, diabetes, and renal disease.†
TUDCA is able to reduce stress to a cell's Endoplasmic Reticulum -- an organelle that serves as a conduit from the nucleus out into the cytoplasm and assists in folding proteins.†
By reducing endoplasmic reticulum stress, TUDCA has been implicated in a wide range of beneficial metabolic effects such as reducing insulin resistance.
