Liver Support, Protection, & Detoxification are something that many people take for granted. In todayís world, people are exposed to a variety of toxins or other things that are hard on the liver in the air we breathe, the food we eat, in things we take, and in alcoholic beverages.

What TUDCA is and why itís Awesome:
TUDCA is the abbreviation for Tauroursodeoxycholic Acid which is a prescription drug also known as UDCA. UDCA is prescribed for the treatment of cholestatic liver disease. And while UDCA is great for treating liver disease, you canít get it without a prescription and even then, it is very expensive. Thatís where TUDCA comes in. Because it is a metabolite of UDCA, TUDCA may offer outstanding liver protection.
According to research, TUDCA may be just as powerful as UDCA in the treatment of biliary cirrhosis. Research also suggests that TUDCA may assist the treatment of people with chronic hepatitis Ė something that goes beyond the even the impressive benefits of traditional liver support supplements such as Milk Thistle and N-Acetyl-Cysteine.
Importance to Bodybuilders and Athletes
In the quest to achieve the most impressive physique or to maximize athletic performance, many bodybuilders and athletes take oral anabolic enhancement products. These products are notoriously harsh on your liver and have been documented to cause liver failure in some people. Androgens may raise your LDL cholesterol. TUDCA may help combat these vicious effects by aiding the production of bile. TUDCA supports bile flow to remove toxic metabolites from the liver. It is through this that TUDCA may help protect you against cholestasis to ensure cholesterol metabolism. Itís a nice one-two punch Ė you get the potential for liver protection along with a cholesterol fighter all in one!
Can TUDCA be Stacked with Cycle Assist?
ABSOLUTELY! Cycle Assist has long been known as THE CHOICE for consumers looking for a support product for their on cycle and post cycle therapy needs. Cycle Assist contains liver support ingredients that can be very complimentary to TUDCA and offers a variety of benefits that TUDCA does not.*
