Ursodeoxycholic acid is a bile acid, a substance naturally produced by the body that is stored in the gallbladder. It works by decreasing the production of cholesterol and by dissolving the cholesterol in bile so that it cannot form stones.
Ursol helps in improving pruritus and liver function in women with obstetric cholestasis. Always consult your physician before taking Ursol as there is limited data available on the use of Ursol during pregnancy. This must not be used during pregnancy unless clearly indicated.
