Butyrate is a short-chain fatty acid essential for optimal digestive health. Holistic health care advocates have been using butyrate in the form of an enema for many years throughout the U.S. Now we are able to offer the same effective strategy in the form of a suppository. There is evidence in the literature that supplementing with butyrate can support people with distal ulcerative colitis and inflammatory bowel conditions like Crohn’s disease.
The important function that butyrate serves in the digestive system is to reduce inflammation, however it has numerous other benefits. Butyrate is a byproduct of the digestive process that can strengthen colonic defenses, prevent re-uptake of toxins into the body, and increase intestinal barrier function. Since butyrate is found naturally in a healthy colon, suppository use can be a safe and effective route of delivery.
When butyrate levels in the digestive system are low, it can result in ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s, and for some without an IBD condition it can cause diarrhea. A butyrate suppository is used to help restore the levels of butyrate in the colon. Our sodium butyrate suppositories are made of the highest quality materials.
