We have previously reported that taurine-mediated reductions in plasma cholesterol in cholesterol-fed rats were caused by increased excretion of bile acids into feces. In the present study, we examined the effect of taurine on bile acid secretion into bile and the absorption of bile acids from the ileum. Male Wistar rats were divided into 2 groups, one group that was fed a diet containing 1% cholesterol (HC diet) and the other group fed a HC diet supplemented with 1% taurine for 2 weeks.
