What is Tudca - white capsules poured out of container


TUDCA (tauroursodeoxycholic acid) is used a drug (in Europe) and as a supplement in the U.S. primarily for treating certain liver disorders and gallstone issues, although the evidence that it works is limited, and there are potential side effects and drug interactions. TUDCA has also been proposed for treating amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), insulin resistance, diabetes, fatty liver disease, hepatitis, liver transplant, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, ulcerative colitis, and acid or bile reflux. Although it exists in small amounts naturally in the human body, TUDCA in drugs and supplements is made synthetically.
