Ursodeoxycholic Acid?? Any Good?


#1

Ursodeoxycholic Acid is a bile acid that has shown profound effects during research on a heavily stressed / diseased liver. IT Has been used effectively during animal research to treat cholestasis

Found this description on a website. Just wondering if any of you guys have heard of it or think it's something worth using when taxing the liver heavily.

It is something that is definitely of interest to bodybuilders using liver-stressing orals. I could only recite back to you what I've read about it elsewhere, so I really don't have a great deal to contribute beyond what you can google. I do know that while it is available by prescription, Liver Longer, an OTC product, contains a taurine-conjugated version of it.
