ButyrAid is a tributyrin complex composed of three molecules of butyrate attached to a glycerol backbone. After ingestion, tributyrin is hydrolyzed in the small intestine and colon to release three butyrate molecules. The glycerol backbone is also converted to butyrate. As such, one molecule of tributyrin yields four molecules of butyrate, enabling even modest doses of ButyrAid to provide substantial amounts of butyrate.
Butyrate is a salt of butyric acid, a short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) produced in the intestines via the bacterial fermentation of some dietary carbohydrates. Butyrate is the primary fuel for colonocytes, and adequate amounts are necessary to support the colon’s health and integrity.
Because ButyrAid supplies butyrate directly and doesn’t rely on carbohydrate fermentation, the state of an individual’s microbiome doesn’t impact the amount of butyrate supplied (as it might for inulin or other prebiotics).
In addition, as it doesn’t require fermentation, ButyrAid doesn’t cause gas and bloating in the way prebiotics can.
Substantial peer-reviewed evidence suggests adequate butyrate promotes:
- Healthy cardiovascular system
- Healthy gut-brain axis
- Healthy immune system
- Healthy microbiota
- Balanced oxidative stress
- Healthy body weight
- Healthy inflammatory processes in the gut
- Healthy insulin sensitivity
As such, ButyrAid may promote health and wellness far beyond simply providing fuel for colonocytes.
- Provides butyrate, a primary fuel for colonocytes
- Supports the health and integrity of the colon
- Doesn’t depend on the state of an individual’s microbiome
- Less likely to produce gas and bloating than prebiotics
