Butyrate: Your #1 Gut Health Postbiotic
Simply put, butyrate is an essential end product of a healthy microbiome.
Your gut bacteria make butyrate first and foremost to fuel and energize the gut lining, which allows the gut to easily absorb nutrients into the bloodstream while combating permeability, keeping waste and toxins out of the bloodstream — and then move everything right along to be *ahem* disposed of. (Bye, constipation!)
But that’s not the whole story — butyrate is an effective gut health supplement with full-body benefits. It’s also backed by over 5000 scientific studies, including human clinical trials.
When butyrate is absorbed into the bloodstream, it quickly goes to work throughout the body.
- It supports a healthy inflammation response, protecting the body from disease while regulating immune function.*
- It helps balance insulin and blood sugar levels.*
- It clears brain fog and boosts brain function.*
It supports healthy DNA and cell differentiation, our cells’ ability to change into a specific type like a heart cell or a kidney cell.*
All very important stuff, running life on a cellular level.
The thing is, most of us aren’t making enough butyrate naturally. Some people may hardly have any butyrate-producing bacteria in their gut due to low fiber intake or repeated antibiotic use. And these days, it's easy for the body to use up butyrate quickly, trying to calm inflammation, fighting off hundreds of toxins and pollutants in our environment, keeping the microbiome from going rogue, and holding the gut together.
This is why we developed BodyBio Butyrate — a simple formulation (butyric acid + minerals) to protect your gut at the cellular level.
