But which butyrate is the best butyrate? In this article, we’ll explore the different types of butyrate and how we can access it.


What is bioavailable butyrate?

Bioavailable butyrate is a form of butyrate that reaches the colon to support gut health, gut barrier function and overall wellness. “Bioavailable” can be used to describe any substance that enters circulation of the body and has an active effect. You can get bioavailable butyrate from eating certain foods or supplements. If we’re talking about getting it through food, the greatest concentrations are found in butter, ghee, cheese, meat, fish, nuts, seeds, vegetables, and fiber supplements. Most people can increase butyrate by supplementing with a bioavailable butyrate. Learn more about the 9 benefits of bioavailable butyrate now.


So, which form of bioavailable butyrate is the best?

When it comes to supplementation, not all forms of butyrate are equal. While some have benefits like the ones you see above, there are drawbacks. For example, sodium butyrate smells terrible and it is not bioavailable in the colon. This is where superior patented tributyrin CoreBiome® comes in with the unique form of butyrate that is bioavailable and reaches the colon.
