Butyricum is encased in a plant-based, acid-resistant, delayed release capsule so that the strain gets through the stomach acid and to the gut microbiome where it can do its job. Butyricum is a better source for butyrate production because over-the-counter butyric acid is likely to be burned up by your stomach acid.
Butyricum contains a targeted probiotic strain, Clostridium butyricum, that can naturally be found in the gut microbiome. It has been shown to target multiple pathways in the gut that are linked to GI symptoms.

What is butyrate?
Butyrate is a short chain fatty acid produced when bacteria in the gut break down dietary fiber. It’s associated with a spectrum of health benefits including healthy gut permeability, blood sugar response, and immune function.
