One of the most important functions our gut microbiome performs is to produce anti-inflammatory substances called Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs) - including butyrate. Butyrate plays a key role in digestive function, immunity, metabolism, and mental health.
The most effective way to increase SCFA production is by consuming a diversity of fermentable fibres. myota offers a convenient way to ensure your body is getting the right amount and diversity of prebiotic fibres to function properly.

Improve Mental Wellbeing
Butyrate production has been linked to improved mental well-being. This includes how we experience stress, anxiety & depression, as well as our rate of cognitive decline as we get older.
Regulate blood sugar
The increased production of butyrate has been linked to improved glucose control. Regular consumption of fermentable fibre may be important to improve insulin sensitivity.
As the main source of fuel for your gut lining cells (colonocytes), butyrate helps to maintain the strength and integrity of the gut lining, reducing the long-term risk of colon cancer.
Enhance nutrient absorption
A healthy gut lining increases your ability to absorb vitamins and minerals, prevents potentially harmful toxins and pathogens from entering the bloodstream, and reduces the long-term risk of colon cancer.
If you struggle to get enough fibre in your diet, myota is here to help. Our prebiotic fibre blends are tasteless and can be taken once a day alongside your existing routine. myota mixes perfectly with cereal, porridge or your favourite drink, coffee, tea or water.
