Consumption of vitamin B6 reduces fecal ratio of lithocholic acid to deoxycholic acid, a risk factor for colon cancer, in rats fed a high-fat diet.
The mechanism of vitamin D's association with a lower colon cancer risk was not understood until recently when it was discovered that laboratory animals given doses of vitamin D and then given lithocholic acid do not get colon cancer.
The study reveals that the body's natural mechanisms are not built to handle lithocholic acid, a toxic by-product of dietary fat, in the volume generated by high-fat diets.
Most of these acids are reabsorbed by the small or large intestines, but one, lithocholic acid, isn't readily taken up there.
External bile acid standards, including cholic acid (CA), lithocholic acid (LCA), chenodeoxycholic acid (CDCA), deoxycholic acid (DCA), ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA), [alpha]-muricholic acid ([alpha]MCA), [beta]-muricholic acid ([beta]MCA), [omega]-muricholic acid ([omega]MCA), glycocholic acid (GCA), glycochenodeoxycholic acid (GCDCA), taurocholic acid (TCA), taurodeoxycholic acid (TDCA), tauro chenodeoxycholic acid (TCDCA), taurolithocholic acid (TLCA), tauro-[alpha]-muricholic acid (T[alpha]MCA), and tauro-[beta]-muricholic acid (T[beta]MCA), were purchased from Sigma-Aldrich.
