Whole body wellness begins in the gut.

Bettergut™ is an innovative pre and postbiotic that directly generates butyrate in the colon, improving gut health and supporting numerous body functions.

Bettergut™ is especially beneficial for those struggling with leaky gut and other inflammatory gut issues. It aids in maintaining intestinal barrier function and is beneficial for immune health and inflammatory responses.

How can Bettergut benefit you?

Bettergut™ contains tributyrin, a direct butyrate generator. Butyrate is a key short chain fatty acid (SCFA) that is critical for gut health. Bettergut™ is a crucial addition to your gut health protocol.

Metabolic Health

Butyrate has been shown to enhance insulin sensitivity which helps regulate blood sugar levels. It may also influence appetite-regulating hormones in the gutsignalling feelings of fullness and satiety. Butyrate may impact fat metabolism, influencing the synthesis, storage, and breakdown of fats in the body.


Butyrate has anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce inflammation. Chronic inflammation is associated with various metabolic disorders, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.

Gut Health

Butyrate benefits gut health by strengthening the gut lining and preventing leaky gut. It regulates gut motility, preventing issues like constipation or diarrhoea. Butyrate also serves as a vital nutrient for beneficial gut bacteria, promoting their growth and activity.

Skin Health

Butyrate benefits skin via the gut-skin axis due to its anti-inflammatory properties (benefits acne, eczema, and psoriasis), antioxidant activity (anti-ageing) and hormone balancing effects (dryness and acne).


Butyrate benefits the gut via the gut-brain axis. Butyrate is an anti-inflammatory (chronic inflammation has been linked to depression and anxiety) and it has neuroprotective effects which support the functioning of brain cells.

Oxidative Stress

Butyrate has been shown to act as an antioxidant, meaning it can neutralize free radicals and prevent them from causing damage to DNA, cells and tissues.

Butyrate in Bettergut™ plays a critical role in strengthening the gut lining, helping to prevent harmful substances from leaking into the bloodstream, a phenomenon known as “leaky gut.” This can lead to a whole host of issues like auto-immune diseases, food sensitivities and allergies, skin conditions, a weakened immune system, mental health issues and more.

"I struggle with being regular and bloating (and fatigue) in general. I have been using Bettergut for a month and I can honestly say it has helped me so much. I take them in the morning on an empty stomach (before breakfast) – no nausea. I have been using it in conjunction with the Phytoceutics Vit B oral spray and my energy levels are noticeably better."

Butyrate is a short-chain fatty acid that is naturally produced in the colon when dietary fiber is fermented by gut bacteria. It plays an important role in maintaining the health of the colon lining and regulating various physiological processes in the body. Most people do not get enough fiber in their diets or have the correct bacteria to generate sufficient levels of butyrate. 

Butyrate is important for several reasons. Firstly, it is a short-chain fatty acid that plays a crucial role in maintaining gut health and supporting the function of the gastrointestinal system. It serves as the primary energy source for the cells lining the colon and promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. Secondly, butyrate has anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to help reduce inflammation in the body. Additionally, it may have potential benefits for conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis, and food sensitivities. Overall, the importance of butyrate lies in its ability to support gut health, inflammation regulation, and potentially prevent certain gastrointestinal disorders. 

Probiotics, prebiotics, and postbiotics are all related to gut health, but they have different roles: 

– Probiotics are live bacteria or yeasts that are beneficial to the digestive system. They can help improve digestion and support a healthy balance of gut microorganisms. 

– Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. They act as food for probiotics and help them thrive. 

– Postbiotics are metabolic byproducts of probiotics. These include short-chain fatty acids, enzymes, and other compounds that are released as probiotics ferment prebiotics. Postbiotics can have beneficial effects on gut health and immune function. 

In summary, probiotics are the live bacteria themselves, prebiotics are the food for probiotics, and postbiotics are the byproducts of probiotic metabolism. 

Yes, butyrate is a pre and postbiotic which works synergistically with probiotics. In other words, Butyrate provides the fuel that helps beneficial bacteria in probiotics flourish and gets rid of harmful bacteria that may be ingested.

Tributyrin is broken down in the gut. 

High levels of butyrate postbiotic are generated. 

Butyrate provides fuel for healthy bacteria to flourish and helps breakdown harmful bacteria.  

Butyrate nourishes the cells lining the gut and encourages the production of mucus to ensure that gut integrity is maintained. 

Butyrate is available to receptors in the cell membranes. 

Butyrate signals and activates cells in other organs, increasing and regulating their activity.
