Microbiome Support offers Sodium Butyrate

Butyrate is a short chain fatty acid naturally derived from fiber fermentation in the intestine of the horse. However, like glutamine, during times of stress adding additional butyrate to the diet can help to maintain a healthy intestinal lining. Supplemental Sodium Butyrate has been shown to help prevent, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis and diarrhea. It is also beneficial in the following areas:

  • Stimulate digestive enzyme production
  • Enhance development of intestinal villi increasing surface area which improves feed utilization
  • Helps alleviate "Fecal Liquid"
  • Reduce acute inflammatory response of the gut lining
  • Serve as major energy source for colon cells
  • Improve insulin sensitivity
  • Inhibit cancer cell growth and the secretion of host defense peptides
  • Affect and prevent the colonization of Salmonella and Campylobacter
  • Positively influence the composition of the gut microbiota

    Feeding Directions

    Feed one teaspoon twice daily in feed for a 1000 lb horse.  Each teaspoon provides over 1,000 mg of butyric acid.

    Can be dosed orally in oil if needed.  2 pounds is 90 day supply for 1000 pound horse.

    Please note: While most horses like Microbiome Support, some picky eaters take some time to adjust. So, it is best to start with feeding just a "pinch" at first, and build up to the recommended dosage. If you need to get "creative," consider moistening your feed with water or a flavored oil such as Aperti. Or mix in some Beet-e-Bite Crumbles in to moistened feed. Or you can try Monk Fruit Extract, or Stevia (stevia, however, can be bitter). Avoid Sucralose or Aspartame -- they raise blood insulin.
