Bile Acids

Our comprehensive line of our bile acid primary standards and internal standards are the perfect complement to primary, secondary, and/or conjugated bile acid research in any clinical, toxicology, or research laboratory. Bile acids are potential digestive surfactants that promote the absorption of lipids, and represent the primary pathway for cholesterol catabolism. Bile Acids account for approximately 50% of the daily turnover of cholesterol.

However, bile acids aren’t limited to just that anymore—they’ve now been recognized as hormones involved in the regulation of various metabolic processes. They regulate their own synthesis and enterohepatic circulation and also triglyceride, cholesterol, glucose, and energy homeostasis.

The current metabolomic and lipidomic efforts aim to provide new insights into the mechanism of bile acid signaling in the regulation of lipid metabolism and the maintenance of lipid homeostasis. To browse our bile acid line, or to place an order with us, click here.
