Dehydrocholic acid, also known as desoxycholic acid, is a bile acid derivative that is synthesized from cholic acid. It is a white or off-white crystalline powder with a bitter taste. Dehydrocholic acid has various applications in the pharmaceutical and medical industries.


1. Bile Acid: Dehydrocholic acid is classified as a secondary bile acid. It is one of the primary components of bile, a substance produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. Bile acids play a crucial role in the digestion and absorption of dietary fats. They help emulsify fats in the small intestine, facilitating their breakdown and absorption by the body.

2. Choleretic Activity: Dehydrocholic acid has choleretic properties, meaning it stimulates the production and secretion of bile from the liver. This can help enhance the overall bile flow and promote efficient digestion and absorption of fats.

3. Medicinal Use: Dehydrocholic acid is used in certain pharmaceutical formulations and medical applications. It may be prescribed in some countries as a choleretic agent to support liver function and improve bile flow in individuals with certain liver or gallbladder disorders. It may also be used as a component in medications that aim to promote digestive health.

4. Research Potential: Dehydrocholic acid has been investigated for its potential therapeutic applications beyond its traditional use as a choleretic agent. Some studies suggest that it may have anti-inflammatory, hepatoprotective, and antimicrobial properties. However, further research is needed to fully understand and validate these potential benefits.

It's important to note that the use of dehydrocholic acid should be under the guidance and supervision of a healthcare professional. The dosage and specific indications may vary depending on the individual's condition and medical history. If you have specific concerns or questions about dehydrocholic acid, it is advisable to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice.
