Short Chain Fatty Acids

Gut microbiota ferment indigestible dietary fiber to generate SCFAs, mainly acetate, propionate and butyrate. Due to their anti-inflammatory properties, short-chain fatty acids may have a wide range of beneficial effects on your body including chronic diseases like neurodegenerative conditions, obesity, diabetes, immunological conditions, and intestinal disorders.
