Calcium Magnesium Butyrate

I can recommend Calcium/Magnesium Butyrate as a daily supplement.

I’ve noticed improved nocturnal erections since taking it. Pelvic floor is feeling better. Bowel movements are easier.
Also the head of my penis has turned a healthy/shiny purple colour. I have not seen that for over 2 years.

Butyrate may help with preventing cancer.

Butyrate is an amazing molecule. From cancer and neurodegenerative diseases, to irritable bowel, it is proving to be a powerhouse.

Butyrate is a four carbon chain fatty acid that the intestinal tract uses as food. It is generated from the colon bacteria in conjunction with fiber products. If you don’t have enough healthy bacteria and fiber in your intestinal tract, then the chances are good that you won’t make enough butyrate.

Butyrate has also been shown to slow the beginning of cancer, in fact inducing what we call differentiation (making cells that were previously behaving like cancer cells – rapidly dividing, become normal again). In one study some 20 years ago animals with chemically induced tumors in the colon had reduction in the size and number of their tumors when they were treated with butyric acid enemas twice daily for eight weeks.

More recent research suggests that Butyrate quells the storm of cytokines that causes inflammation in the brain leading to scarring and cell death. By doing so, it is thought that chronic degenerative diseases like Alzheimers, ALS, and others may be slowed or even reversed. In fact, preliminary evidence suggests this is so when this nutrient is given in conjunction with others.

There are different kinds of butyrate. Some butyrates are attached to sodium, others to calcium and magnesium. Most people need calcium and magnesium so calmag butyrate is a reasonably safe option.

Butyrate also helps clean the liver, the gall bladder, and biliary tree in the liver. It also helps clean the bowel, helps control ammonia, and removes unwanted “renegade fats”.

In the case of cancer, Butyrate is what is known as a Histone Deacetylase Inhibitor. Fancy term, but the bottom line is it regulates cell division indirectly by regulating histones. Histones are the main proteins of chromatin which in turn regulate how DNA is copied. There are at least five of them and they change the shape of the DNA and make it either accessible or not. This in turn depends in part on butyrate as butyrate inhibits one of the enzymes responsible for modifying the Histones. That enzyme causes the histones to change shape and in turn allows the DNA to open up to be read by other proteins which in turn convert those instructions from the DNA to new proteins and other things. Regulating this process is what you want if you are trying to stop cancer.

In general 500 to 2000mg of butyrate is a reasonable amount for an adult, but some people take more. One should always take butyrate in conjunction with healthy fatty acids like Udo’s oil or Elyte Oil. These oils have a mixture of Omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids the body needs to replenish the cell’s membranes and make them work properly.[/b]

How much cal-mag butyrate were you taking per day? how long before you felt a difference? also, a few members here complain of testicular retraction when needing to take a dump? did you experience this before cal-mag butyrate, and if so, was it less severe/gone afterwards?

Any benefits of taking butyrate seem to have worn off.
It definitely did help me for a few weeks though.

The same thing happened with cortisol…
I had a great boost for a few weeks with cortisol, then the effects wore off. Sorry man i don’t have better news.

noniman - As you are likely aware, Sodium BUTYRATE (or Cal-Mag Butyrate) is a similar compound to GHB (Gamma Hydroxy Butyrate) or “Xyrem” which has been reported as a potential cure for pfs. Xyrem is essentially the is the Sodium salt version of GHB.

From your post it seems like you used Cal-Mag Butyrate, whereas I would be more inclined to use the Sodium Butyrate alternative. I know someone who has taken that in combination with Arteminisin, Udo’s 3-6-9 blend Omega oil and Co-Q-10 and has seen a significant remission of their cancer.

If I had to try Butyrate as a therapy, I would be inclined to try:

  1. Sodium Butyrate…600mg
  2. Artiminisin…100mg
  3. Udo’s Choice 3-6-9 Omega Oil
  4. Co-Q-10…200mg

Butyrate works much better in this combination.

Below are some of the reviews from on Artiminisin.

My wife suffered from colon cancer stage 4, that metastisized into the liver, causing her to have two major cancer surgeries in 16 months. After a year of healthy eating, IR light treatments, and daily artemisinin, she is cancer free over a year later. It was discovered to be a cancer fighter at the University of Washington in recent years, the Chinese have been using artemisinin for centuries, worth a look into if you have cancer.

I bought Artemisinin along with Apocaps CX Apoptogen Formula for Dogs (90 capsules) about two months ago. My Siberian Husky, Vavara was diagnosed in April with Nasal Carcinoma, but too late for Surgery, chemo ineffective and Radiation therapy not available for dogs in Thailand at this time.
The fact that Vavara is still alive today when all the vets following her case say she should be dead, is a testament to the effectiveness these two products.

If your dog has cancer I cannot recommend Artemisinin and Apocaps strongly enough

I have stage IV cancer and the artemisinin reacts with the iron rich cancer cells oxidizing the iron effectively killing the cancer cell. I take 6 caps every day per doctors instructions and consider it vital to my health.

This review is from: BodyBio/E-Lyte - Sodium Butyrate 600 mg 100 caps (Health and Beauty)

  1.   The Sodium Butyrate has strong anti-cancer properties. The Sodium Butyrate is the sodium salt of butyric acid, which is a short-chain fatty acid. It's a natural byproduct of the fermentation of dietary fibers in your large intestine. It is anti-carcinogenic. The Sodium Butyrate increases the anti-carcinogenic effect of Artemizinin 10 times, according to laboratory tests. Should always be given at the same time with Artemizinin.
  2. I gave the Sodium Butyrate together with the Artemizinin to my father in his fight with bladder cancer. After only 12 days of “Sodium Butyrate & Artemizinin” therapy, many dead tumors begun to be expelled with his urine. It was extremely effective.
  3. The Artemizinin dose was 400 mg (4 pills) 4 times daily (daily total = 1600 mg), and the Sodium Butyrate dose was 2400 mg (4 pills) 4 times daily (daily total = 9600 mg). Also the Artemizinin has to be given together with some fat, because it is not soluble in water. He used 2 t.s. flax oil to dissolve the Artemizinin capsule content, then drank the mixture. The therapy time was 14 days non-stop, then 3 days off (break), then repeated for several months for total tumor destruction.
  4. The above combo selectively attacks the carcinogenic cells only. Do not combine the Artemizinin with any anti-oxidants, because the anti-oxidants will neutralize the effect of the above therapy.
  5. Highly recommended for anti-cancer therapy.

Anyone else try Cal Mag Butyrate or Sodium Butyrate?

Is there a specific or “best” brand of this product to take? I’m willing to try it.

BodyBio is a good brand for Sodium Butyrate. It comes in 600mg capsules which is good if you don’t want to take a lot of pills. For Artemisinin, “Doctor’s Best” is a fairly good brand.

Is there anyone on this forum (except moonchild) that has taken butyrate or bhb and is getting better/cured???
