Butyrate is a short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) that has been combined with calcium & magnesium.
It is made in the lower colon by bacteria and taken up by the colonocytes, the cells that line the colon.
It then becomes an essential food for those cells. Lacking good bacteria in our colon, such as when we take antibiotics, can lead to an insufficient supply of butyrate.
Butyrate detoxifies the liver, the gall bladder, and the biliary tree.
It also cleans the bowel, controls ammonia, removes ‘renegade’ fats (the very long ones that accumulate with age), and lowers the expression of inflammatory immune markers called cytokines.
