Default Tudca

I was looking into buying some Tudca (Tauroursodeoxycholic Acid) for my dad. For anyone who is taking it was wondering where they bought it from and what dosage they were taking. Thanks!

Default Re: Tudca

I got mine on line at ama. Zon. I take 250 twice a day. Have been debating working up to the 1000 twice a day. There was an older smaller study showing some benefit from acetyl l carnitine which I also take. I am not sure whether I would have started the tudca ( not because of anything bad just you will find a need to pick and choose) but I found a lab study on the biochemistry of c9 ( my genetic defect) that postulated it could have a beneficial effect for c9 specifically.

Thanks Nikki. I saw a study where PALS were taking 1g twice daily but thats probably too much to start my dad off on.
