Has anyone taken these?  I have pills and was wondering if they are worth trying.

I meant Butyric "Acid" in the title btw....massive brain fart typo (great so now my brain is farting)


Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis 6/2006 at age 26 after sudden E.R. visit
~Pancolitis (Mild to Moderate)
 ~I had Mono in 2000
On Colazal 3x3/day; Folic Acid 1mg; Calcium/Magnesium/Zinc combo
(Generic Balsalazide not as effective for me)
In remission about 2-3 months after E.R. but not back to normal!
I hate Ulcerative Colitis and can't wait till we eradicate it

lol.

I haven't tried it, but someone who used to post here often talked about the benefits of adding butyrate into our diets. Maybe if you do a google search for "butyrate" and "healingwell" you might come up with some old posts.

From what I've read....they will help produce healthy bacteria in the gut.
One source of fibre that helps produce high amounts of butyrate is inulin (chicory), which is found in a fibre supplement (which one has escaped me at the moment).

Butter contains the highest amount of butyrate in a food.

I also read that it will help the protective mucosal layer...helping to prevent breaks which can leave the colon vulnerable as well as prevent leaky gut syndrome,

doors12..what's the daily dosage of the Butyrate acid suggested on the bottle of the one you have? Does it say to take it with food, not with food..etc?

I can see that it would be a good idea for those who have chosen to keep grains out of their diet since it's carbs (insoluble fibre) in the diet that helps feed and create butyrate.

It has other things like Vitamin A, Panothenic Acid, some Calcium, and Magnesium but the Butyric Acid is 1,033 mg and the bottle says one or two capsules with each meal - the chiro that gave me them said to take 2 capsules 2 times per day.

Butyric acid used for UC is more effective taken as a enema than taken orally
