Butyric acid is the reason why rancid butter smells like vomit. Butyric acid or butyrate may be the reason why some IBDers (like me) find that powdered psyllium seed seems more effective than plain soluble fiber such as psyllium husks (Metamucil). Internal gut flora convert psyllium seed to butyrate in the colon.

* Discourage GI system flare-ups
* Encourage regeneration of colon cellswww.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=38&m=2152224
