As we continue to look at the importance of overall gut health, it is also vital to understand how Phosphatidylcholine and Butyrate can affect our health – especially in our gut. Included in our Gut Health program, both of these supplements play a crucial role in getting you back to feeling your best. Let’s take a look at these two pieces and how they affect our bodies.
What is Phosphatidylcholine (PC)?
Phosphatidylcholine is a chemical contained in eggs, soybeans, mustard, sunflower, and other foods. It is also found naturally in the body in all cells and is a source of choline in the body. The body makes a chemical called acetylcholine from phosphatidylcholine. Acetylcholine is important for memory and other functions in the body. Phosphatidylcholine is thought to help protect the wall of the large intestine in people with a type of inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis). With research supporting it as a use for ulcerative colitis, Phosphatidylcholine can also be used for memory loss, Alzheimer disease, and liver disease.
What is Butyrate?
Butyrate is a very important short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) that appears to be intimately tied to our health. Unfortunately, we are not able to make butyrate on our own. Instead, we get butyrate from our 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. Butyrate has many important functions within the human body, particularly for digestive health, supporting brain health and protecting against disease.
Despite its importance, however, many people may not be getting enough of this essential postbiotic. Not only is Butyrate critical in repairing the lining of the gut and the health of cells within it—it also supports healthy inflammation response to protect the body from disease while improving immune function. Butyrate repairs the damage that pesticides, toxins, processed foods, drugs, etc. has done to the lining of the gut and helps to heal the gut lining. It promotes healthy DNA to support genetic function against damage, which may lead to disease.
Why BodyBio Butyrate and PC?
Regen IV Wellness provides BodyBio Butyrate and PC supplements that can help bring your gut to its optimal health. Included in our Gut Health protocol, BodyBio is one of the highest quality brands of supplements that are offered on the market. Both of these supplements are premium quality and ready to be put to work on your gut. With all natural ingredients, they are free of wheat, gluten, yeast, corn, soy, dairy, artificial colors and resins.
BodyBio Butyrate is specially formulated to support gut health, promote detoxification, maintain proper pH levels in the colon, reduce inflammation, promote healthy DNA function, support healthy blood sugar regulation, and serves to close tight junctions and prevent the dysbiosis commonly known as leaky gut.
BodyBio PC combines four forms of pure phospholipids for quick absorption to rebuild every cell in your body, benefitting every key system. Keeping all of the systems in the body running optimally is hard to do with diet alone. BodyBio PC works to give your cells the boost they need to work better, in turn supporting every system in your body to thrive.
Since PC decreases as we age, more doctors are recommending supplementation with phosphatidylcholine to ensure we’re keeping our cells, and in turn, the entire body healthy at any age.
Whether you’re hoping to heal a current health concern like digestive, cognitive or immune function, or prevent future problems, studies show that increased levels of Phosphatidylcholine (PC) can help the body heal while also improving brain function, mental focus, and memory.
