Burate or Butyric acid supplements
One key component that plays a role in intestinal epithelial cells is butyrate.
Butyrate is a short-chain fatty acid that is being more and more studied.
If you're considering incorporating a butyrate supplement into your routine, this article will guide you through some of the best available forms.
Sodium butyrate, calcium or magnesium butyrate
Sodium, calcium or magnesium butyrate are salts of butyric (butanoic) acid. These forms are readily digested and might not rich enterly the colon. When it comes into contact with moisture, it emits a strong and pungent odor (rancid butter)
Butyrin based supplements
Butyrin is a triglyceride of butyric acid. It provides three molecules of butyrate. It is more stable form (in the stomach) and is slowly digested throughout the gut. It can be found in two forms. Both supplements are formulated to release butyrate in the colon, where it is most beneficial.
- Butycaps Sachets - Granule form: Microencapsulation of butyrin ensures slow-release action in the gut
- Butycaps Capsules - Liquid form: Easy to swallow softgel butyrin capsules
Theses two forms are suitable options for a wide range of individuals seeking a butyrate supplement.
These butyrate supplements are available for sales in the EU and in the UK.
