Supplements improving the proper functioning of the digestive tract.
Is a very good source of butyric acid, which belongs to short chain fatty acids, being the main source of energy for colonocytes – enterocytes. It is found in small amounts in some food products, and is produced in the body in the large intestine by intestinal bacteria.
Natural production may be reduced in some cases, and butyric acid supplementation may be useful in this situation.
Use of butyric acid was restricted due to its specific odour and rapid absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, which prevented its effect in further sections of the gastrointestinal tract.
Due to the use of encapsulation, butyric acid can get anywhere.
