Magnesium butyrate is a salt of magnesium and n-butyric (n-butanoic) acid. On one hand, magnesium plays an important role in regulating the body’s response to stress. Studies link low magnesium intake with a higher risk for depression. Butyric acid is a short chain (C4) carboxylate with several industrial uses. One of the major applications of butyrate is to retard bacterial growth, and thus protect products from spoilage. Other common uses include:
•    Preservative
•    Feed additive
•    Organic magnesium source
•    catalyst
•    Detox agent
•    Mold inhibitor
