What is Butyric Acid?
Butyric acid is a dietary supplement containing 250mg of the 4-carbon fatty acid. It has a steady-release delivery system in the gastro intestinal tract. It is also known as a short chain fatty acid (SCFA). It was first discovered in 1814 by a French chemist and its name derives from the Greek version of the word "butter".
Butyric acid is produced naturally in the gut by beneficial bacteria during the breakdown of dietary fiber. It is also found in some natural sources of fats such as the dairy fats in cheese, butter and milk. It is also a source of fuel for the cells of the large intestine.
However, not everyone can tolerate high fiber foods and can experience discomfort or bloating. Therefore, one can supplement this substance in the convenience of a capsule.
