Sodium butyrate is butyric acid sodium salt. It is much more stable than pure butyric acid, it does not have such a bad smell. In supplementation, it occurs in the form of a micro granulate, which is resistant to digestive enzymes of the upper gastrointestinal tract. The granules ensure the gradual release of sodium butyrate and distributing it over the entire length of the small and large intestine.
Sodium butyrate is used in disorders of the digestive tract. It has been shown to have a beneficial effect on intestinal colonocytes and is used by them as a source of energy. In addition, it promotes the increase in the amount and size of the intestinal villi and improves the integrity of the intestinal mucosa. It may also limit the production of proinflammatory cytokines and stimulate the production of compounds with antibacterial properties.
Dosing: according to the recommendation of a specialist. In prevention, the dose is usually from 150 to 300 mg of sodium butyrate per day.
