Butyrate is a short-chain fatty acid essential for optimal digestive health. Holistic health care advocates have been using butyrate in the form of an enema for many years throughout the U.S. Now we are able to offer the same effective strategy in the form of a suppository. There is evidence in the literature that supplementing with butyrate can support people with distal ulcerative colitis and 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. Since butyrate is found naturally in a healthy colon, suppository use can be a safe and effective route of delivery.
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. A butyrate suppository is used to help restore the levels of butyrate in the colon. Our sodium butyrate suppositories are made of the highest quality materials.
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Keep the suppository in the refrigerator so it remains hard before removing the wrapper. Put on a finger cot or disposable glove, if desired (available at a pharmacy). Lubricate the suppository with a water soluble lubricant such as K-Y Jelly or coconut oil, not petroleum jelly (Vaseline). If you do not have this lubricant, moisten your rectal area with cool tap water. Lie on your side with your lower leg straightened out and your upper leg bent forward toward your stomach. Lift upper buttock to expose the rectal area. Insert the suppository, pointed end first, with your fingers until it passes the muscular sphincter of the rectum, about ½ to 1 inch in infants and 1 inch in adults (If not inserted past this sphincter, the suppository may pop out). Hold buttocks together for a few seconds. Remain lying down for about 5 minutes to avoid having the suppository come out. Discard used materials and wash your hands thoroughly. Suggested dosage is 1 (one) suppository daily or as directed by your health practitioner.
