Deva Nutrition is proud to introduce its new Vegan TRIBUTYRIN product with 500 MG potency per vegan capsule. Tributyrin is a well-studied precursor of the short-chain fatty acid BUTYRATE (aka Butyric acid). In the human body, butyrate is produced when good bacteria break down the dietary fiber in our colon. Tributyrin, a butyrate precursor, is naturally found in butter and ghee. Our vegan tributyrin, on the other hand, is made from vegetable oil through a special manufacturing process in which NO dairy or other animal products are involved. Our product is 100% VEGAN & VEGETARIAN.*
WHAT DOES BUTYRATE DO IN OUR BODIES?
Colonocytes, the cells that form the colon lining, require short-chain fatty acids to function properly, and butyrate is the main one they consume. Butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid, is the preferred energy source for our colon cells as it provides about 70% of the energy needs of our colon cells according to Cleveland Clinic (1). Butyrate appears to be involved in bowel function, water and sodium absorption, and the maintenance of the gut's protective mucus layer (2),(7),(8). In other words, butyrate appears to support the gut barrier (1),(3),(8). There is ongoing research on different aspects of butyrate and how it may be involved in many bodily functions, especially pertaining to digestive health (4),(5),(6),(7),(8).*
HOW TO INCREASE OUR BUTYRATE PRODUCTION
There are certain foods that may enhance butyrate production in our colon because they contain fermentable fiber which beneficial gut bacteria feed on. They are fruits, legumes, vegetables, whole grains, and certain resistant starches like boiled potatoes and rice (1). You could also take supplements like Deva Vegan Tributyrin, which provides you with 500 mg of non-animal tributyrin (a precursor to butyrate) per capsule.*
