Butyrate Supplements for Gut Health: Does butyric acid really work and is it safe?
Butyrate supplements are promoted for a wide range of digestive health benefits, from improving overall gut health to decreasing symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, as well as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. They are also promoted for improving blood sugar and insulin function, promoting weight/fat loss, and for more general benefits such as decreasing inflammation, boosting the immune system, and increasing energy. Several small preliminary trials suggest potential benefits, but there is not enough evidence to prove that butyrate supplements do all that they promise.
