SunButyrate Liquid was designed to provide a supplemental dietary source of butyric acid with SunButyrate, a proprietary, butyrate-rich triglyceride oil. Butyrate is one of the most abundant short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) in the colon, where it acts as a key energy source for colon cells. Findings show that butyrate accounts for about 70% of colon epithelial cell (colonocyte) total energy consumption.1 Once absorbed, colonocytes rapidly oxidize 95% of the butyrate into ketone bodies for ATP synthesis.2 As such, butyrate constitutes an important energy source for the body, providing anywhere from 5% to 15% of a person's daily caloric needs.

SunButyrate provides butyrate in a unique, highly palatable triglyceride form, which protects against premature degradation in the stomach and upper GI tract. While other forms demonstrate 70% breakdown in the stomach, GI models and in vitro studies reveal only 6-8% breakdown with SunButyrate, in addition to this form maintaining over 90% integrity in the intestine. Available in a delicious natural blueberry-vanilla flavour, SunButyrate Liquid can be taken alone or mixed into food or drinks for an easy way to supplement dietary butyrate.
