In the last batches of Apollo's Hegemony products, another glue was used for lids under the caps. The glue is weaker than previously used, this is why the lid often stays inside the cap when unscrewing the bottle. This does not affect the quality of products because during storage the lid adheres to the bottle and protects its contents.
Apollo’s Hegemony Sodium Butyrate is a dietary supplement containing butyric acid sodium. The preparation is aimed at multidirectional support of intestinal health.
Sodium butyrate is a source of butyric acid (butyrate), a compound naturally occurring in the human large intestine, formed in the process of bacterial fermentation. Butyric acid is a representative of compounds from the group of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), which have many functions in the digestive tract, primarily associated with the normalization of bowel function.
Regeneration of the intestinal epithelium
Butyrate is one of the basic energy substrates for colonocytes – intestinal epithelial cells. Butyrate and other SCFA compounds are important for proper bowel integrity. They affect accelerated healing of the intestinal epithelium, and thus maintaining the intestinal barrier function, whose proper condition is necessary, for example, to protect the digestive tract against microorganisms. There have also been reports that butyrate may have beneficial effects on intestinal microcirculation.
Help in inflammatory ailments
Butyrate has proven anti-inflammatory properties. It shows an inhibitory effect on some substances that are mediators of inflammation, including TNF-α. It also exhibits immunostimulatory activity against colonocytes. In some inflammatory bowel conditions, the disturbed energy balance of colonocytes is observed, which further adversely affects the integrity of the intestinal barrier.
Butyrate supports the bowel functions in a multidirectional way, as a result of which it relieves inflammation, and thus helps with the related ailments, including diarrhea.
Improvement of the bowel function
Butyrate normalizes the functioning of the intestines. It supports their proper peristalsis, regulates the reabsorption of water and sodium in the intestines, and also affects the proper composition of the intestinal bacterial microflora. This is another mechanism by which butyrate may be helpful in diarrhea. It is a substance that is also often recommended as an auxiliary agent in ailments associated with irritable bowel syndrome, which is a functional disorder of the digestive tract.
To sum up, Apollo’s Hegemony Sodium Butyrate is a dietary supplement designed to effectively replenish butyric acid deficiencies.
Many gastrointestinal diseases may significantly reduce the natural production of butyric acid in the intestines.
To further support the proper functioning of the intestines, you should remember about a balanced diet containing fiber. Fermented products or properly selected probiotic dietary supplements are also important.
The preparation may have a characteristic smell, typical for sodium butyrate, which is a natural phenomenon.

Fat is an essential nutrient plant and animal organisms. Because of the nutritional value and composition of fats are divided into: saturated (mono-saturated and multi-saturated fatty acids) and unsaturated fatty acids (including essential fatty acids - EFA). The group of lipids include lipids (triacylglycerols, waxes), complex fats (glycolipids, phospholipids), sterols and isoprenoids. Saturated fatty acids is a group of fatty acids having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is bound by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Fats are a concentrated source of energy, with different flavours, facilitating the consumption and swallowing of food. They have building functions (part of cell membranes and co-create the white matter of the brain). EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. The unsaturated fatty acids include fatty acids from the group Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 (the last digit indicates, on which, counting of the end of the chain, there is a double bond in the appropriate carbon chain. The essential fatty acids include: acids, medium-Omega-3 [n-3 ] included in EFAs [essential fatty acids], and long chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) Omega-6 and Omega-9. the number indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is on the third from the end carbon atom. The acids from the omega 3 group are essential components of cell membranes, they are precursors of eicosanoids and biological activators. They must be combined with ingestion in suitable proportions of Omega-6 acids.
Dosage: Depending on demand and applied diet. It is generally accepted that fats should constitute 20-30% of the energy (calorie) of meals daily.
Sodium butyrate is butyric acid sodium salt. It is much more stable than pure butyric acid, it does not have such a bad smell. In supplementation, it occurs in the form of a micro granulate, which is resistant to digestive enzymes of the upper gastrointestinal tract. The granules ensure the gradual release of sodium butyrate and distributing it over the entire length of the small and large intestine.
Sodium butyrate is used in disorders of the digestive tract. It has been shown to have a beneficial effect on intestinal colonocytes and is used by them as a source of energy. In addition, it promotes the increase in the amount and size of the intestinal villi and improves the integrity of the intestinal mucosa. It may also limit the production of proinflammatory cytokines and stimulate the production of compounds with antibacterial properties.
Dosing: according to the recommendation of a specialist. In prevention, the dose is usually from 150 to 300 mg of sodium butyrate per day.
