ASD patients are at high risk for microbiome imbalances where fiber metabolism produces abnormally high amounts of the short chain fatty acid, Propionic Acid and insufficient levels of beneficial Butyric Acid.* High levels of Propionate cross the gut-blood-brain barrier creating a toxic environment impacting brain development and function.* GI symptoms from this imbalance can overlap with ASD symptoms such as alterations in behavior, cognition, language impairment and sleep disturbance. 1*
AuRx® effectively replenishes the inadequate Butyric Acid supplies, thereby reducing Propionic Acid production and toxicity supporting gut-brain balance.*
The AuRx difference.
Butyric Acid in its native form has an unpleasant odor and strong taste traditionally making it difficult for young patient’s to consume. AuRx is formulated using Tesseract’s novel proprietary delivery technology to create the first palatable, high absorption, pure form of butyric acid.* AuRx is capsule-free, has no flavor masking agents or other unwanted additives or allergens.
How do I add AuRx into my child’s/patient’s diet?
