Tributyrin Health Benefits: Discover the Power of Tributyrin

What Is Tributyrin?

Tributyrin is a triglyceride compound that gets converted within your body. Once you consume it, it becomes butyric acid, an active metabolite.

You may also come across the names butyryl triglyceride and glyceryl tributyrate when making discoveries about Tributyrin.

History Of Tributyrin

The name Tributyrin is a derivative of butyric acid which comes from “βούτυρο,” the Greek word for butter. If you’ve eaten butter in the past, you’ve already consumed butyric acid. Plus, your body makes some of its own butyric acid. Basically, it’s a saturated short-chain fatty acid. You can also find it in ghee, some animal proteins, and several good-for-you plant oils.

In your body, butyric acid forms in your colon. In fact, when you digest dietary fiber, the bacteria in your gut ferment it to support the overall health of the cells in your small and large intestines. The cells lining your gut use butyric acid for fuel.1
