Gut Armor is an immunity, performance, and digestive health supplement that combines two compounds, butyrate, and vitamin D3. Butyrate allows the body to achieve higher levels of active vitamin D3, which boost immune functions, allowing the body to fend off pathogens. Gut Armor also enhances athletic performance through superior nutrient absorption and reducing lactic acid buildup. Gut Armor can also be a key component in combating digestive issues like leaky gut, irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, bloating, and Crohn’s disease through a process called butyrate supplementation.
Butyrate is a short chain fatty acid that helps maintain an oxygen-free environment in the gut which allows beneficial microbes to thrive in the microbiome. Butyrate is naturally produced in the lower gut when microbe’s breakdown undigested fiber. Most people’s diets consist of mostly protein and carbohydrates which leaves little room for fiber, which is the microbes main energy source. Energy deprived microbes cannot produce enough butyrate for the body to maintain an oxygen free environment in the gut and as a result the gut’s microbiome becomes unstable.
The microbiome is made up of over 70 trillion beneficial and non-beneficial microbes and these microbes can influence our mood since 90% of our serotonin is created by beneficial microbes. The microbiome also plays a role in dictating food cravings, nutrient absorption, cognition, energy levels, immune function, and overall gut health.
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.
