ButyrEn 100 Delayed-Release Vegetarian Capsules -
A source of butyric acid from the salts of calcium and magnesium. This short chain fatty acid is produced in the body by certain probiotic bacteria.* Now in delayed release DRcaps™.
Colon health is directly related to the metabolic
processes occurring in the gut, which itself is directly
related to diet. In this way, it can be said that the food
we eat, which will in part determine the health of the
colon, is a way to communicate with our environment.
But how does our food communicate with our
environment? It does so because when we take food into
our mouths, it begins a process of transformation as it
moves through the stomach, then the intestines, and the
waste part goes out again into the environment. During
this trip, the food becomes changed in structure, or
digested. The digested nutrients are free to be absorbed
by the circulatory system and delivered to the necessary
sites. Upon delivery of the nutrients, the cells receive a
message and then the cells create a reaction, the type of
reaction depending on the nutrient involved.
Butyrate is created when colonocytes act metabolically
on undigested fiber in the colon. This fiber can be
considered a prebiotic agent. Prebiotics escape
enzymatic digestion in the upper gastrointestinal tract
and enter the large intestines unchanged. Instead
of being excreted in the stool, these substances
are fermented by colonic flora to yield SCFAs such
as butyrate. The SCFAs, in turn, will stimulate the
bifidobacterium in the large intestine, which may yield health benefits such as boosting the intestinal immune response, producing vitamins and enzymes, producing
organic acids that support normal intestinal pH, and supporting the structure and functional integrity
of the epithelial lining in numerous ways.*
The ability of colonocytes to utilize butyrate can contribute to a healthy condition of the colon or bowel.*
is absorbed by the colonocytes in the proximal colon via passive diffusion and by active transport mechanisms. The
mucosal metabolic fluxes of both butyrate and glutamine (a conditionally essential amino acid) have been shown to
be connected to several aspects of intestinal health, including healthy intestinal immune response.*
