Butyrate & Tributyrin

Butyrate - A naturally occurring Short-Chain-Fatty-Acid made by specific strains of gut bacteria. Butyrate is the main fuel source for the cells in the gut called colonocytes.

Tributyrin - Is a precursor of the Butyrate and the most bioavailable, readily absorbed, and stable form of Butyrate. Unlike sodium butyrate which has a hard time surviving the digestive process, Tributyrin, because of its two components –three butyrate molecules and one glycerol molecule is able to remain stable in the harsh acidic environment during digestion. This ensures a full delivery of butyrate to the lower gut.

Vitamin D3

Contrary to the name, Vitamin D is actually a pro-hormone that needs to be activated by nutrients like butyrate in order to become bioavailable. Butyrate increases the expression of Vitamin D receptors (VDRs) These receptors activate Vitamin D ensuring higher levels of active Vitamin D throughout the body.

Vitamin D3 aids in calcium absorption, bolsters the immune system, improves the absorption of butyrate and increases gut microbial diversity.
