Butyrate is a microbiota metabolite, i.e. it is derived from the fermentation of prebiotic fibres by microbiota strains. It has many health benefits.
TEOLIANCE BUTYRATE LR (Delayed Release) provides 780 mg of butyrate in calcium form per 4 capsules in a gastro-resistant capsule for targeted release in the colon. Butyrate calcium has the advantage of being a stable form.
TEOLIANCE BUTYRATE LR (Delayed Release) is ideal as a nutritional supplement for colon health, particularly in the case of low-fibre diets, such as those without FODMAPs.
Why choose TEOLIANCE BUTYRATE LR (Delayed Release) from Laboratoire Therascience?
- For its concentrated delayed release butyrate formula, developed by Dr Jacques Bassier*;
- For its gastro-resistant DR caps™ capsules allowing the delayed release of butyrate in the colon;
- For the stability of butyrate in calcium form.

Metabolites of the microbiota are molecules produced by the bacteria of the microbiota in the presence of dietary fibre, also known as prebiotics. These fibres are fermented by enzymes possessed by our bacteria and are used as an energy source by these bacteria. The bacteria then produce metabolites: postbiotics. Metabolites of the microbiota can be peptides, but also short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), such as butyrate. These metabolites serve both the bacteria of the microbiota and the host cells (us), which benefit from them: a perfect illustration of the close relationship between the host and the microbiota.
These metabolites have a beneficial role for the body. Butyrate has a particular effect on colonic health and is a nutritional aid in cases of diverticulosis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and a history of Chronic Inflammatory Bowel Disease (CIBD), excluding relapses. This SCFA is also used to prevent diverticulitis. In addition, butyrate is perfectly suited to a low-fibre diet, such as a FODMAP-free diet, in order to maintain a healthy microbiota.
