Don’t understand what you’re looking at?
Don’t worry.. thats my job.
Don’t understand WTH this has to do with anxiety?
Don’t worry.. I’ll break it down.
What we are looking at here my friends is the amazing friend in our colon called Butyrate. Butyrate belongs to the families of short chain fatty acids (SCFA).
Everyone has them, some more, some less- but we will get there…
Why is the level of Butyrate so important?
Well, lets break it down:
1. High levels of Butyrate protect against IBS and Chron’s 💩
2. Promising research indicates that it plays a preventative role in colon cancer
3. High levels of Butyrate protect agains insulin sensitivity and Type 2 diabetes
4. High levels of Butyrate indicate a healthy gut. A healthy gut means you have a good microbiome. A good microbiome is a KEY way to prevent anxiety
I love to do gut health testing and find discover Butyrate levels. These short chain fatty acids play a foundational role in protecting agains anxiety. 99% of the time its one of those 💡discoveries that can make all the difference in the world for my patients.
It’s just one of the many things we test for at my clinic and is a key part of The Anxiety Detox Method™ protocol.
Holler if you want to know your Butyrate!
