TUDCA IS A NATURALLY-OCCURING BILE ACID
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.)†

THE MAGIC THAT GOES IN EVERY SERVING
Tauroursodeoxycholic acid, a.k.a. TUDCA, is a water-soluble bile acid that is found in trace amounts in the human body.†
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.†
h. 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.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is a more stable form of the amino acid L-Cysteine and is the most effective way to boost Glutathione levels in the body. NAC is a more stable form of L-Cysteine because it has an acetyl group (CH3CO) attached. NAC has all the properties of L-Cysteine but is more water soluble and said to be more bio-available than L-Cysteine.
NAC makes up Glutathione, a critical antioxidant scientifically proven to scavenge free radicals. NAC has the unique ability to maintain healthy lung tissue, support the body’s natural defenses and enhance cellular health and longevity. These qualities make NAC especially beneficial for active people, the elderly and those exposed to polluted environments.
What makes NAC so effective as a glutathione booster is the fact that it is a stable amino acid that can retain up to six times the amount of the sulfur and sulfhydryl groups after digestion. Scientists believe that sulfur and sulfur compounds may be central to glutathione. This is crucial for the body’s life functions, as NAC helps the body neutralize toxins, heavy metals, such as mercury from dental amalgam fillings, cadmium and lead from paint and cigarette smoke. The Sulfhydryl balance has also been linked to enhance resistance to viral infections.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) provides powerful immune support and also packs a powerful anti-toxin potential. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine has the ability to neutralize cell and DNA damaging free radicals.
NAC has been shown to play a protective role against a variety of toxic hazards such as cigarette smoke, auto exhaust, certain herbicides, and overdoses of acetaminophen. It can also play a beneficial role in prostate and respiratory conditions. For example, NAC has well established anti-mucolytic (anti-mucous) properties and has been shown to increase mucocilary transport in smokers.
