A company I order a lot of my vitamins and supplements from had a supplement I hadn't notice before. It sounds interesting for someone with IBD. I googled butyric acid and crohn's disease and there is some info about it, nothing too informative but enough saying that it makes sense and could help crohn's. I just thought their product description of the supplement was very interesting and I really like some of their other products. It isn't marketed towards crohn's or IBD just to better gastro health and to people with chronic health problems. And it is micro encapsulated so it dissolves in the colon.

Achieve Better Gut Health With Super Supplement, Butyric Acid.

* Top quality Butyric Acid by T.E. Neesby
* Promote healing of the intestinal tract
* Discourage GI system flare-ups
* Encourage regeneration of colon cells

Anyone tried this or something similar? Any thoughts?
Diagnosed with Crohn's in 1998, father has UC we were diagnosed at the same age.

Currently on 20 mg Prednisone, 2g Sulfasalzine, homemade Kefir for my probiotics, Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, D3, B complex vitamin. Previously on Remicade, just stopped Humira after 9 months, wasn't working.

No surgeries so far.

Did you know that butyric acid gets its name for the Latin word for butter? And that is because genuine butter contains the best source of it. Find yourself a good organic farm that make their own UNPASTEURIZED fresh cream butter and eat all you want of that. Far more beneficial than an isolated supplement since you get all the benefits of friendly bacteria and other valuable nutrients from real raw milk butter.

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.

Butyrate is what produces all those great results mentioned in your post:
* Promote healing of the intestinal tract
* Discourage GI system flare-ups
* Encourage regeneration of colon cells
Male/60 DX ulcerative colitis Feb08, or maybe Crohn's colitis.
No Meds, allergic to Mesalamine. Remission since Mar10. Psyllium seed mixed with VSL3 is very helpful. Food journal instead of SCD.

Lots of fruit & vegetables (but no plums, kale, or carrots), no soda, no gluten, no HFCS, no xylitol or sorbitol, no trans fat, no shellfish, few processed foods, no carrageenan.
Probiotics, fish oil, multivitamin, extra D3, K2, high gamma E, phos choline, magnesium, boswellia, curcumin, glutamine.
