What is TRIButyrate? Good question!
TRIButyrate is a patented form of Tributyrin, a triglyceride that the body converts into butyrate.1 Read on to see how TRIButyrate can provide many of the same health benefits that fiber and probiotics provide…without the gas and bloating!
TRIBUTYRATE: #1 Major Benefit of Fiber and Probiotics
Your mother probably told you to eat your veggies, and now “experts” tell you to eat your veggies AND take probiotics. This is because the fiber in the veggies and the live bacteria in probiotics help rebalance your gut bacteria, collectively called “gut microbiota”.
Your gastrointestinal tract is home to 100 trillion microbes.2 This includes a balance of “good” and “bad” bacteria and other microbes that work together to support health. Any imbalance in gut microbiota can lead to ill health and disease.
Fiber is a prebiotic that feeds the good bacteria in your gut. High-fiber diets are linked to lower body weight, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, and improved digestive function.3
Tributyrate & Probiotics?
Probiotics are foods or supplements that contain live microorganisms. (Yogurt and other fermented foods are probiotic.) They add good bacteria and other microbes to your gut microbiota. Like fiber, probiotics have been shown to provide health benefits, such as preventing antibiotic-associated diarrhea.4
Probiotics and other “good” microbes in the colon ferment the fiber, creating a waste product (postbiotics).5 Postbiotics is an umbrella term for all the components of this microbial fermentation and include:
- Short-chain fatty acids
- Teichoic acid
- Functional proteins
- Cell lysates6
Research shows that postbiotics may be responsible for most of the health benefits attributed to fiber and probiotics. Butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid, is one of the most-studied postbiotics and has been found to be beneficial to health, particularly in regards to cellular energy metabolism and intestinal health.7
But there’s only one problem: Butyrate is the least abundant short-chain fatty acid produced by this fermentation process, so it’s nearly impossible to get enough butyrate through your diet. And you can’t get it by taking a supplement either because Butyrate breaks up before getting to your colon.
The Answer is TRIButyrate!
TRIButyrate is the superior patented, fully absorbable form of butyrate. This BREAKTHROUGH gut-health solution has been clinically proven to carry butyrate to the colon where it can help fix your distressing bathroom issues. And unlike fiber and probiotics, TRIButyrate works without creating gastrointestinal issues. So say “goodbye” to all that gas, bloating, and digestive distress!
