Active Ingredient History

Dehydrocholic acid is manufactured from cholic acid by oxidation. The main use of dehydrocholic acid is as a digestive aid in the dietary supplement industry. It is typically formulated with enzymes like papain and pancreatin. It has a stimulating effect on the secretion of bile by the liver (choleretic); improves absorption of essential food materials in states associated with deficient bile formation.   NCATS
