Chemical Description

  • Calcium butyrate is a white crystalline powder with a Cas No 5743-36-2.
  • It is moderately soluble in water and less soluble in organic solvents.
  • This moderate solubility is beneficial for its gradual release and absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, which is useful for both animal feed additives and human supplements.
  • Calcium butyrate is used in anti-diarrhea involving animals such as livestock and poultry at various stages of growth, including livestock, cattle, sheep, horses, rabbits, dogs, cats, or donkeys at multiple stages of development.
  • It is a new type of anabolic nutrient that can reduce body fat, reduce muscle protein consumption, and help muscle recovery.
  • It reduces muscle damage caused by overwork and improves exercise intensity and endurance.
  • It is often added to animal feed to promote gut health. It serves as an energy source for the cells lining the gut, enhancing intestinal integrity and function.
  • By improving nutrient absorption and gut health, it can contribute to better growth rates in livestock, particularly in poultry and swine.
  • Calcium Butyrate helps reduce harmful bacteria in the gut, promoting a healthier microbiome.
  • Calcium butyrate supplements are sometimes used to support digestive health.
  • Butyrate is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and supports the health of the colon.
  • It may be used for its potential benefits in reducing inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, which can be beneficial for individuals with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
  • Its supplementation has been associated with reduced stress levels in animals, particularly during periods of weaning or other stressful events.
  • This can help to minimize the negative impact of stress on animal health and performance.
  • By improving nutrient absorption and gut health, calcium butyrate can help animals extract more energy from their feed, potentially reducing the amount of feed required to achieve desired growth rates.
  • It can be stored at room temperature under an inert atmosphere.
  • It is available in 25 Kg bag packaging.
