Butyrex has been presented as a unique dietary supplement created to play a role in rebuilding cells present in the colon and sustaining a proper digestive function.

Jigsaw Health is the Unites States company behind this formula and was established in 2005 in Arizona. This business has great confidence in each of their products’ quality and potency, so much, so that offers a full money-back guarantee with all their products that are available for 90 days.

Sustained Release Technology has been used to manufacture some of its products. These formulas set themselves apart by having a longer release time. Thus the active ingredients are better absorbed and assimilated.

This blend serves to sustain fiber metabolizing in the colon and thus supports a gastrointestinal health transit and gives colon cells the fuel needed for good digestion.

Butyrex is set apart from other similar ones by its micro-encapsulated design that has the effect of delivering the active ingredients in the colon without first being braked down by intestinal digestion. Butyrex is also said to contain no dairy, corn, gluten, or artificial resin ingredients.


1) What is Butyrex?

This formula is a mineral-based dietary supplement that also uses Butyric acid’s therapeutic effects to promote a healthy intestinal tract cycle.

One of the ingredients present in Butyrex is a mineral called Magnesium, which plays an active role in the proper function of over 300 chemical reactions in the organism.

The needed amounts of this substance are generally obtained through diet. Still, sometimes dietary supplements like this one are required in order to maintain a healthy level in the body.

This mineral helps digestion by having an antacid function with acid digestion and provides a laxative effect when dealing with constipation.

Another mineral found in this product is Calcium, which is presented as a mandatory part of health and sustains digestion.

Calcium is essential for muscle health and function and thus helps the digestive function by sustaining the digestive muscles, therefore a low intake of this mineral can lead to an incomplete digestive cycle due to low muscle function.
