Butyrate is amazing!

Butyrate is a metabolite that can be produced in your gut. It:

  • Powers gut cell regeneration
  • Combats leaky gut
  • Calms the immune system
  • Enables memory formation
  • Helps to make you feel better, and
  • Fights inflammation throughout the body
  • You can make butyrate in your gut by feeding certain bacteria specific types of fibre.

Butyrate has been extensively researched. We have compiled a collection of the most
compelling papers below.

What is Supergut Repair?

Supergut Repair is a blend of carefully selected plant fibres each of which has been chosen for its proven health benefit.

INULIN – Inulin is present in over 30,000 different plants. It is known to promote short-chain fatty acid production in the gut, including butyrate.

RESISTANT STARCH – Resistant starch is also regarded as a potent butyrate producing food. It is fermented by a variety of bacteria in the gut and leads to an increase in butyrate production.

ANTIOXIDANTS – Beetroot and cocoa fibre are considered powerful antioxidants which can reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.

Benefits of Butyrate

Butyrate and Inflammation

Butyrate provides an anti-inflammatory benefit in the gut and beyond. Inflammation is being identified as one of the primary drivers of chronic disease and reduced quality of life. By promoting butyrate production in the gut, it may be possible to reduce the risk of inflammatory diseases.

Butyrate and your brain

Butyrate Supports Brain Health

Butyrate acts in the brain by promoting long-term memory formation as well as reducing inflammation which can lead to brain degeneration over time. Loss of brain function is common as we age.

Butyrate Helps Mood and Sleep

Butyrate is a molecule that helps to regulate sleep and lift your mood. It does this by stimulating the production of serotonin in your body. Serotonin is a molecule that helps you feel better.

How can I produce more butyrate?

The bacteria in your gut convert dietary fibre into various by-products including vitamins and metabolites. Certain bacteria convert certain starches and fibres into butyrate. This butyrate is then absorbed into the cells of the gut for their use, and the surplus passes through into your body to provide a health benefit

How does Supergut Repair produce butyrate?

Supergut Repair is a combination of fibres and starches which are known butyrate producers in the gut. It also has the benefit of antioxidants which combat oxidative stress and abundant free radicals.

Resistant Starch

Resistant starch is dietary starch that ‘resists’ digestion in the small intestine. In the large bowel, resistant starch then provides fuel for the resident bacteria (microbiome), which break it down (ferment) to products that help support a healthy digestive system and protect against gut and other diseases.


Antioxidants are molecules that fight free radicals in your body. Free radicals are compounds that can cause harm if their levels become too high in your body. They’re linked to multiple illnesses, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Supergut repair includes beetroot fibre and cocoa fibre, both demonstrated antioxidants.
