BodyBio Cal Mag Butyrate, 100 caps BodyBio Cal Mag Butyrate brings you the vital benefits of calcium, magnesium and butyrate in one easy to swallow capsule. Benefits of Cal Mag Butyrate: Calcium is used in almost every bodily function. This essential mineral assists in pH balance, and supports tone, power, strength, and endurance. If you are looking for longevity and vitality, than supplement with Calcium. Magnesium plays an important role in energy production and management. All major organs in the body need Magnesium to function properly, and it is imperative for healthy functioning of the kidneys, liver, and heart. Magnesium helps stabilize the heartbeat and prevent cardiac arrhythmia. Butyrate is a short chain fatty acid (SCFA) that has been combined with calcium & magnesium. It is made in the lower colon by bacteria and taken up by the colonocytes, the cells that line the colon. It then becomes an important food for those cells. Lacking good bacteria in our colon, such as when we take antibiotics, can lead to an insufficient supply of butyrate. What is Butyrate used for? Butyrate scrubs & cleans the liver, the gall bladder and the biliary tree. It also cleans the bowel, controls ammonia, removes ?renegade? fats (the very long ones that accumulate with age) and lowers the expression of inflammatory immune markers called cytokines. What is the recommended dosage of Calcium Magnesium Butyrate? Approximately 2-3 caps daily, unless otherwise suggested by a HCP. Can Cal-Mag Butyrate be taken on an empty stomach? We have never heard of any problems taking Butyrate on an empty stomach. What are the ingredients in Calcium Magnesium Butyrate? Butyric Acid, Calcium Hydroxide, Magnesium Hydroxide, and Diglycerides Are there any side effects from taking Cal-Mag Butyrate? None to our knowledge.

About BodyBio, the company BodyBio was founded in 1995 by Dr. Patricia Kane and her entrepreneurial partner and husband, Edward Kane. In 1995, Ed and Patricia Kane, Ph.D. developed a medical database program that would produce a list of required nutrients based on an individual?s blood chemistry results. It links nutritional deficiencies to a person?s blood chemistry/CBC and red cell fatty acids, and provides recommendations to correct those deficiencies, known as The BodyBio Report. Focusing on evidence based nutrition for over 25 years, Dr. Kane has written numerous articles and books for both the scientific community and the public. Dr. Kane?s primary interest is in fatty acids, nutritional biochemistry, cell membrane function and neurological disturbances, and has a long standing interest in the challenging areas of seizure disorders, autism, traumatic brain injury, MS, ALS, Parkinson?s, CFIDS, and heavy metal toxicity. Her dedication and success in working with children and adults with fragile brain architecture and patients with challenging neurological problems has brought her widespread recognition in the field of nutritional biochemistry. Dr. Kane works with doctors across the country addressing complex metabolic disorders and lipid disturbances with targeted nutritional intervention. Dr. Kane serves as Director of Medical Research at BodyBio, having developed a biomedical analysis system for fatty acid and biochemical testing. Her expertise in boldly addressing complex metabolic aberrations and lipid disturbances with targeted nutritional intervention for neurological disorders has led to direct nutrient application utilized by medical doctors worldwide. Her clinical experience, working with physicians, spans 30 years.
