Butyrate is an important short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) and it is an energy source for the intestinal epithelial cells, which also influences several factors affecting colonic health (1). Butyrate Complex provides SCFA calcium/magnesium butyrate to support digestive system health.
Additional product info: The inhibition of inflammatory processes by food components as butyrate, n-3 FAs, and curcumin is beginning to identify key events that are essential for the transformation of normal epithelial colonic cells into neoplasms (2). Butyrate is a short-chain fatty acid representing a main end-product of intestinal microbial fermentation of mainly dietary fibre. Butyrate is an important energy source for intestinal epithelial cells. It may also have an anti-inflammatory potential, affect the intestinal barrier, playing a role in satiety and oxidative stress, and contribute to the maintenance of colonic homeostasis. Two important mechanisms of butyrate include the inhibition of nuclear factor kappa B activation and histone deacetylation (3),(4) ,(5).
