BioCare Butyric Acid Complex
(Plus calcium and magnesium)
Butyric acid is a short chain fatty acid produced as the result of the bacterial breakdown of dietary fibre. It feeds the epithelial mucosa cells lining the gut wall and is essential in maintaining the integrity of the gastrointestinal wall.
The fibre in whole foods, such as fruits and vegetables provides a natural substrate for the production of butyric acid, a short chain fatty acid produced by the normal bowel flora which is the end result of the bacterial breakdown of dietary fibre. Butyric acid feeds the epithelial mucosa cells lining the gut wall and is essential in maintaining the integrity of the gastrointestinal wall.
Butyric acid is primarily utilised in the large intestine
Butyric acid helps L. acidophilus and B. bifidum adhere to gut epithelial tissue
Butyric acid is required as a primary source of energy for rapidly growing intestinal cells
Butyric acid helps to support the natural renewal mechanism of the gut tissue
Butyric acid assists in the production of 'on site' enzymes and has a supportive role upon intestinal immune resistance
Suitable vegetarians and vegans
