What is TUDCA?

A major part of staying healthy is maintaining the optimal functioning of organs. While you might not think about them much during the day, they struggle 24/7 to provide you a healthy existence. By taking care of your organs now, through exercise, healthy diet, and well chosen supplements, you can improve your vitality for a long time to come. While it may seem like a big challenge, certain dietary supplements can make promoting the health of your organs a breeze.

TUDCA (Tauroursodeoxycholic Acid) is an endogenous, hydrophilic bile acid derivative often used in Europe for its health benefits. [1,2] It is the taurine conjugate of ursodeoxycholic acid.* [3]

TUDCA was originally administered in traditional Chinese culture, where it has been used for centuries, and now recent scientific research has discovered a multitude of potential uses for TUDCA.* [2]

Tauroursodeoxycholic Acid was also shown to have some beneficial metabolic effects, but it is most often taken for its role in promoting healthy liver tissue and vision.* [1]

TUDCA Benefits

TUDCA has significant supplemental properties for many organs throughout the human body. [1] It promotes healthy skeletal muscles and other organs, particularly the liver.* [1]

TUDCA is used for many supplemental liver and immune system purposes, and also is used to support a healthy gallbladder.* [1,3]

This dietary supplement may have some powerful cognitive properties.* [3]

By supplementing cellular health, TUDCA has proven to be effective in helping eye’s maintain cones and rods.[3] This photoreceptor protection can go a long way in promoting healthy vision.*

TUDCA Dosage

200 to 300 mg twice a day is a normal dose for TUDCA. TUDCA can be taken as part of a larger regimen of supplements to provide a full spectrum of health.

“Excellent quality product with a 3rd party CoA, and well priced. It’s difficult to find TUDCA meeting this criteria. I’m hoping Powder City continues to stock this long term — I’d prefer to buy from them. The powder has a truly awful, extremely bitter, taste, but that’s just the way pure TUDCA tastes. If it tasted any different I’d be highly suspicious about the product quality. Good stuff.”– Nick

“TUDCA from powder city is as they say. Other supplement companies are not providing TUDCA. How can you tell? TUDCA is a bile salt. Bile is a bitter metallic taste. If you are not feeling you are having any effect from your TUDCA open a cap and taste. Bitter metallic is good. I bought some TUDCA from other company and it was not TUDCA. 21 days of powder city TUDCA and I have had great results. 250 mg three times a day. Get a scale and some caps.”- James R.
