Tauroursodeoxycholic acid (TUDCA) Powder (14605-22-2) Description:
Chinese medicine has used animal bile for hundreds of years as a medicine to treat “heat” illnesses. It was used to relieve spasms, reduce fever, and improve visual acuity. Bile is naturally synthesized via cholesterol, consisting of compounds including taurochenodeoxycholic acid, ursodeoxycholic acid, and chenodeoxycholic acid.However, UDCA and TUDCA were first synthetically developed in 1954 in Japan.
Tauroursodeoxycholic acid powder is a bile acid taurine conjugate derived from ursoodeoxycholic acid. It has a role as a human metabolite, an anti-inflammatory agent, a neuroprotective agent, an apoptosis inhibitor, a cardioprotective agent and a bone density conservation agent. It derives from an ursodeoxycholic acid. It is a conjugate acid of a tauroursodeoxycholate.
Tauroursodeoxycholic Acid (TUDCA) is a liver aid introduced as a supplement by ThermoLife in their product Liver Longer. It looks like a good resource for preventing cholestasis, one of the major risks with 17 alkylated steroids. Tauroursodeoxycholic Acid (TUDCA) is an ambiphilic bile acid. It is the taurine conjugate form of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA). Humans are found to have trace amounts of TUDCA. However, bears contain large amounts of TUDCA in their bile. TUDCA has diminishing apoptotic effects, helping with cardiac function, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and stroke. Recently, TUDCA has been found to have protective effects in the eye, especially concerning retinal degenerative disorders.
