Pendulum Butyricum



30 Capsules

Butyricum by Pendulum contains Clostridium butyricum (WBSTR-0006) which stimulates butyrate production, a short-chain fatty acid that’s essential to maintain a healthy gut. Research shows that Clostridium butyricum contributes to a diverse and overall healthy gut microbiome. Butyricum works by effectively increasing Clostridium butyricum levels in the gut, helping convert dietary fiber into butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid that strengthens and protects the gut lining, and aids in the growth of good bacteria to improve gastrointestinal discomfort.

Butyrate is an important short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) that appears to be intimately tied to health. Despite its importance, however, many people may not get enough of this essential postbiotic. Humans cannot make butyrate on their own. Instead, butyrate is delivered from food and from a series of reactions that take place in the gut microbiome. These reactions are what convert dietary fibers into a bounty of butyrate. The loss of butyrate-producing bacteria in the gut microbiome can have far-reaching effects in the human body.

While there are natural sources of Clostridium butyricum such as soil, certain vegetables, and dairy products, taking a probiotic such as Butyricum is the most effective way to increase its levels in the gut.
