About the effectiveness of Urso tablets 100 mg for gallstones and liver diseases
Urso tablets 100 mg for gallstones and liver diseases from Japan contain 100 mg of ursodeoxycholic acid in each tablet. This acid increases bile secretion and replaces hydrophobic bile acids in the liver. Also, Urso tablets inhibit cytokine and chemokine production and protect the liver from inflammatory cells (S. Saksena, R. K. Tandon. Ursodeoxycholic acid in the treatment of liver diseases. Postgraduate Medical Journal, 1997 Feb; 73(856): 75–80). By this, Urso tablets significantly improve liver dysfunction. Moreover, this medicine helps to dissolve the gallstones and to improve the digestion and absorption.
