Stimulate Intestinal Health, by supporting the Microbiome Balance and reinforcing Intestinal Integrity.

Optimize microbiome and intestinal integrity

The health and integrity of the intestinal environment is key to increase profitability. Logically speaking, a well performing intestinal tract maximizes production output. Glycerides of specifically butyric acid have a positive effect on intestinal development. These glycerides stimulate intestinal health by supporting tight junction formation, preventing intrusion of pathogens.

Additionally, glycerides of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) positively affect microbiota composition. Whereas Antibiotic Growth Promotors completely destroy the intestinal microbiome, glycerides are surprisingly selective. Research has shown that glycerides of butyric acid improve microbiota diversity of all livestock animals, increase the diversity and concentration of Bifidobacterium, and show an improved Lactobacilli/E.coli ratio.

FRAmelco offers FRA Butyrin Ultra, supporting animal performance by improving intestinal integrity.

“A highly concentrated source of butyric acid.”

Butyric acid glycerides

The effect of butyric acid glycerides on gut development is intensively studied. Butyric acid serves as energy source for the epithelium cells and stimulates villi growth and recovery. It also increases length of the small intestines, resulting in more efficient uptake of nutrients and enhanced resistance against pathogens.
