Sodium Butyrate 60mg Suppositories
Butyrate is a short-chain fatty acid essential for optimal digestive health. We have been compounding butyrate in the form of an enema for many years for patients throughout the U.S. Now we are able to offer the same effective medicine in the form of a suppository. Butyrate suppositories are most often used for treating distal ulcerative colitis but may also be prescribed to treat symptoms of other inflammatory bowel conditions like Crohn’s disease.
The important function that butyrate serves in the digestive system is to reduce inflammation, however it has numerous other benefits. Butyrate is a byproduct of the digestive process that can strengthen colonic defenses, prevent re-uptake of toxins into the body, and increase intestinal barrier function. It may even have some anti-cancer effects. Since butyrate is found naturally in a healthy colon, treatment with a suppository is safe and has few side effects for most individuals.
When butyrate levels in the digestive system are low, it can result in ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s, and for some without an IBD condition it can cause diarrhea. Some individuals may also become more susceptible to developing colon cancer when their butyrate levels are low. A butyrate suppository is used to help restore the levels of butyrate in the colon to help with symptoms of inflammatory bowel diseases. Our sodium butyrate suppostories are made of the highest quality materials and are available to be shipped to directly to your home.
