CDCA Information

Chenodeoxycholic acid is primarily prescribed to treat cerebrotendineous xanthomatosis (CTX), gallstones and constipation.

Supplementary uses include the treatment of some liver disorders, such as primary biliary cholangitis (PBC). It also helps reduce the production and absorption of cholesterol in the liver and can be prescribed in combination with other medications to manage some metabolic disorders.

Recent CDCA Research

  • An update on the use of CDCA confirms the use of the drug to treat CTX and reveals its efficacy for reducing cholestanol levels and stabilizing neurologic symptoms. The update also suggests that CDCA may inhibit HMG CoA reductase in diabetic patients while also promoting the release of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) via activation of GPBAR1. 
  • Researchers from Korea conducted research to evaluate the efficacy of CDCA and UDCA (Ursodeoxycholic Acid) treatment for patients with gallstone disease and possible effects on the gut microbiome. Thirteen patients were evaluated and 62% responded to treatment. Following gut microbiome analysis, the researchers concluded that gut microbial dysbiosis in some patients was partially reversed by UDCA/CDCA treatment.

Why Buy GMP-Certified Products?

GMP-certified products are produced and controlled according to standards set by regulatory authorities and relevant industry organizations. 

Quality Assurance

Safety and Efficacy

GMP is a mark of quality. Compliance with GMP standards ensures products are manufactured to high standards, including consistency, equipment, employee training, testing, and facility design. 

GMP-certified products undergo robust quality control and testing procedures to ensure they are consistent, safe, and effective. This is absolutely critical for substances intended for human consumption. 

Regulatory Compliance

Supply Chain Reliability

GMP is recognized worldwide as the leading standard for producing and distributing APIs. Many regulatory authorities, including the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) require GMP compliance for product approval and marketing.

GMP covers the entire supply chain to make sure your products are top quality from start to finish, including raw material sourcing, storage, and transportation. Choosing GMP-certified APIs ensures supply chain integrity and reduced risk of poor-quality, counterfeit, or contaminated products.
