What exactly is Butyrate?
Sodium Butyrate scrubs & cleans the liver, the gall bladder and the biliary tree. It also cleans the bowel, controls ammonia, removes‘renegade’ fats (the very long ones that accumulate with age) and lowers the expression of inflammatory immune markers called cytokines.
Butyrate is a short chain fatty acid (SCFA) that has been combined with sodium. It is made in the lower colon by bacteria and taken up by the colonocytes, the cells that line the colon. It then becomes an important food for those cells. Lacking good bacteria in our colon, such as when we take antibiotics, can lead to an insufficient supply of butyrate.
How would a person know if they should take Sodium Butyrate?
Butyrate is used in a wide array of neurological disorders. The research reports it’s ability to elevate cellular enzymes such as alkaline phosphatase and low sodium and chloride levels. However these are analytes (cellular enzymes or electrolytes) from a blood test which many individuals have done yearly. It’s difficult to pin point when you may need Butyrate, however, your health care practitioner (HCP) should be able to assist you.
Why would one take Sodium Butyrate instead of plain Butyrate? Vise Versa?
Calcium and Magnesium Butyrate is the most popular since we all seem to be in need of those two electrolytes. However, there are some that are Sodium deficient. Your HCP could certainly assist those that may fall into that category.
Can Sodium Butyrate be taken on an empty stomach?
We have never heard of any problems taking Butyrate on an empty stomach, or at any time. We have reports of some who find it helpful to take before bedtime as a sleep aid.
The active ingredients in the forumla are:
Butyric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, and medium chain triglycerides.
About BodyBio, the company
BodyBio was founded in 1995 by Dr. Patricia Kane and her entrepreneurial partner and husband, Edward Kane.
In 1995, Ed and Patricia Kane, Ph.D. developed a medical database program that would produce a list of required nutrients based on an individual’s blood chemistry results. It links nutritional deficiencies to a person’s blood chemistry/CBC and red cell fatty acids, and provides recommendations to correct those deficiencies, known as The BodyBio Report.
Focusing on evidence based nutrition for over 25 years, Dr. Kane has written numerous articles and books for both the scientific community and the public. Dr. Kane’s primary interest is in fatty acids, nutritional biochemistry, cell membrane function and neurological disturbances, and has a long standing interest in the challenging areas of seizure disorders, autism, traumatic brain injury, MS, ALS, Parkinson’s, CFIDS, and heavy metal toxicity. Her dedication and success in working with children and adults with fragile brain architecture and patients with challenging neurological problems has brought her widespread recognition in the field of nutritional biochemistry.
Dr. Kane works with doctors across the country addressing complex metabolic disorders and lipid disturbances with targeted nutritional intervention.
Dr. Kane serves as Director of Medical Research at BodyBio, having developed a biomedical analysis system for fatty acid and biochemical testing. Her expertise in boldly addressing complex metabolic aberrations and lipid disturbances with targeted nutritional intervention for neurological disorders has led to direct nutrient application utilized by medical doctors worldwide. Her clinical experience, working with physicians, spans 30 years.
