Start with 1 capsule every other day, and gradually increase to 1 capsule, 2-3x daily, or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. Best taken with food or right before eating.
With initial use you may feel some gastrointestinal discomfort, subtle cramping, or changes in stool. This response is normal and a sign that the butyrate in Gut Armor is reconditioning the intestinal terrain of your GI tract. Any discomfort should subdue within 3-5 days.
Gut Armor provides the beneficial microbes with the fuel they need to carry out their daily task, ensuring the microbiome is balanced and working at its full potential.
Gut Armor is not a probiotic, it is the fuel source for your intestinal cells and beneficial bacteria. The Butyrate in Gut Armor provides 60-70% of the energy your intestinal cells use, making butyrate the main fuel of the digestive tract. Gut Armor enhances the effects of beneficial bacteria like probiotics. The beneficial bacteria in the microbiome oversee fortifying the intestinal wall, preventing harmful bacteria from entering the bloodstream, helping prevent stomach pain, bloating, inflammation, and Leaky Gut.
GutArmor is a chemical messenger and fuel source that creates an oxygen-free environment in the gut that allows beneficial bacteria to thrive. Probiotics are strains of beneficial bacteria that get temporarily introduced into the gut to help balance the microbiota.
Tributyrin is the most bioavailable, slow released. and absorbable form of butyrate. Tributyrin has been clinically proven to carry butyrate to the lower colon where it can help fix gastrointestinal issues like IBS and Leaky Gut. Unlike other butyrate supplements like sodium butyrate, Tributyrin is a more efficient, pharmacokinetically superior variant of butyrate, one of the more influential SCFAs.
GutArmor fuels beneficial microbes that reinforce the intestinal wall. When these microbes are operating at peak performance bacteria, undigested food, and pathogens have less of a chance of piercing the intestinal wall and getting into the blood stream.
Standalone vitamin D3 supplements fall short when compared to Gut Armor’s Vitamin D3 & Butyrate compound. Vitamin D3 is activated by vitamin D receptors (VDR). Butyrate increases the expression of VDR’s giving the body higher levels of active vitamin D3. The coupling of Vitamin D3 and Butyrate gives the immune system the perfect boost to fight off viruses and infections.
We have over 70 trillion microorganisms called microbes living in our bodies at any given time and they directly affect our mood, food cravings, cognition, nutrient absorption, energy levels, metabolism, immune systems and much more. There are beneficial microbes and non-beneficial microbes. The ratio of good microbes to bad microbes determines the over health of the microbiome and has a direct effect on body composition. It is very important to eat a clean, high fiber diet to ensure you are providing the good microbes the proper nutrients they need to thrive. A healthy gut balance is made up of roughly 80% of good microbes and 20% bad microbes.
Pathogens or pathogenic bacteria are the “bad” gut bugs — these are ones that, if found, are very likely to make you symptomatic. Depending on the pathogen, that could mean symptoms from things such as bloating, excessive gas, flatulence, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, reflux, and more.
Gut bacteria affects our weight because it regulates how much fat and how many calories we absorb from our food. Bacteroidetes are the “good” guys because they help produce the short chain fatty acids such as butyrate that help reduce inflammation and assist in food digestion. Firmicutes are the “bad” guys since they adversely affect the glucose and fat metabolization which causes people to absorb and retain more calories from the foods they eat. Firmicutes have also been correlated to obesity and Type II Diabetes.
If the "good" bacteria that helps you digest food cannot keep up with the harmful bacteria, the "bad" bacteria can multiply too fast, which causes you to have an imbalance that could cause something known as ‘Blind Loop Syndrome’. Early signs of this syndrome are pain in your abdomen, queasiness, fatigue, feeling bloated, passing an abnormal amount of gas and diarrhea or constipation.
Preservatives are the main contributor to the killing of good gut bacteria and the most frequently used preservative is sugar. One study found that the common sugar substitute, Stevia, kills off large numbers of the probiotics living in your digestive tract.
Christensenellaceae is not the only gut bacteria that might affect weight loss. Jeffrey Gordon, M.D., who is the director of the Center for Genome Sciences and Systems Biology at the Washington University School of Medicine and one of the first researchers to link intestinal bacteria and obesity says a diverse mixture of microbes in the gut seems to be one key to staying slim. In fact, research has found that lean people have 70 percent more gut bacteria and therefore a more diverse microbiota.
One of the most well-known types of good bacteria are probiotics. Most of the bacteria that make up our microbiota are beneficial while there are only a handful of bacteria that can adversely affect us. Of the total bacteria in our bodies, a healthy balance is 85% good bacteria and 15% bad bacteria.
The main disease is called Bacterial gastroenteritis, this happens when bacteria causes an infection in your gut which can lead to inflammation in your stomach and intestines. You may also experience symptoms such as vomiting, severe abdominal cramps, and diarrhea.
Foods that are high in carbs can compromise the balance of the stomach flora, food such as bagels, wheat/white and whole grain bread, crackers, pasta, cereal, and white rice, among others. Once the stomach flora is in a state of imbalance there can be inflammation in your gut lining and intestines which can cause acid reflux, and indigestion.
