Secrets to Healthy Bowel Movements
When we digest food, our body extracts nutrition and then expels what it can’t digest..1 If we don’t have regular healthy bowel movement, toxins can accumulate in the intestines. This disturbs the balance of good and bad bacteria, which not only affects the quality of your bowel movements, it can also affect your overall health.
Research shows one of the best ways to have healthy bowel movements is to eat a high-fiber diet and drink lots of liquids. Fiber not only creates the bulk necessary for regular bowel movement, but it also feeds our beneficial (good bacteria) causing them to thrive and multiply.
But there is another reason for fiber’s beneficial effect on bowel movement and health. When the fiber gets to your colon, beneficial bacteria eats it and secretes short-chain fatty acids (SCFA). These SCFA’s are responsible for much of the health benefits attributed to fiber.
There are two main types of SCFAs: acetate, propionate, and butyrate.2
Butyrate for Healthy Bowel Movements
Butyrate appears to have the largest impact on gut health.3 It is also the most studied SCFA and the one found to offer the most health benefits overall.
Butyrate as powerful postbiotics has been shown to:
- Facilitate weight loss4
- Protect against colon cancer5
- Improve brain function6
- Help anxiety and depression7
- Reduce inflammation in the gut8
- Improves digestive function9, 10
And these are only a few of its many health benefits. But there is a problem. Butyrate is an unstable molecule, meaning that it breaks down quickly and cannot get to the colon where it’s needed to do its job.
Thankfully, there is a way around this.
TRIButyrate to the Rescue!
Researchers discovered that to stabilize butyrate, all they needed to do is attach to a glycerol molecule. This enables it to get to the colon intact so that it can then release butyrate.
The result is TRIButyrate, a patented formula proven to deliver butyrate to your colon.
Are you tired of all that painful and embarrassing gas, bloating, and stomach pain? How about that constipation or diarrhea? There is a solution. Millions of users have fixed their gut issues with this BREAKTHROUGH formula containing patented TRIButyrate! Will you be next?
