Butyrate is a short chain fatty acid produced when bacteria in the gut break down dietary fiber. It’s associated with a spectrum of health benefits including healthy gut permeability, blood sugar response, and immune function.
Butyricum is encased in a plant-based, acid-resistant, delayed release capsule so that the strain gets through the stomach acid and to the gut microbiome where it can do its job.
Butyricum is a better source for butyrate production because over-the-counter butyric acid is likely to be burned up by your stomach acid.
Pendulum Butyricum is GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe), and customers who take it for general metabolic health have reported a wide variety of benefits.
You can take Butyricum with other probiotics. It works particularly well in combination with Pendulum Akkermansia.
While we have not clinically tested Butyricum with other medication or supplements, there are no known contraindications. We recommend seeking the advice of your healthcare provider for further recommendations.
