Did you know?

As a natural preservative, propionic acid has been successfully used in food production for decades, for example to extend the shelf life of packaged bread or puddings. Propionic acid is also of particular importance in the production of certain types of cheese, as it is responsible for the typical holes and taste of cheese.
Nowadays, propionic acid is the focus of numerous studies. Amongst other things, a study examined the intestines of MS patients and found a real bacterial deficit.

A healthy person has about 160 different types of bacteria in their gut!
This shows that the development of a normal intestinal flora is essential for our health. This also includes a healthy diet with sufficient intake of dietary fibre. With a diet rich in fibre, a person with balanced intestinal flora produces 4000 mg of propionic acid per day. In this case, the short-chain fatty acid propionic acid is formed in the large intestine in a completely natural way during the digestion of dietary fibre.
The scientific findings of the positive effect of propionic acid on the human body are increasingly unambiguous. Benefit now from the positive features and buy the propionic acid capsules from ZeinPharma® either in our shop or in any German pharmacy stating the PZN: 16945139

FAQs

How should I take the capsule?

Take 2 capsules daily with a meal and with sufficient water, do not chew.

How long should I take the propionic acid capsules?

Short-chain fatty acids are produced daily by intestinal bacteria and are needed daily by the intestinal bacteria, as well as by the human body. Regular use over a longer period of time is therefore recommended.

Can side effects occur?

Flatulence may occur. Otherwise, there are no known side effects from taking propionic acid/sodium propionate.

Can I open the propionic acid capsule?

The capsule can be opened, but care must be taken that the contents of our capsules are pure sodium propionate, which may react and cause irritation if it comes into contact with the skin or eyes. If you want to open the capsules, you should wear gloves and glasses. Please also make sure that the sodium propionate does not get into the respiratory tract.

What is the best way to store propionic acid?

It is best to store our products in a cool, dry place. Storage in the refrigerator is not absolutely necessary. However, please make sure that children cannot access the products.

What does propionic acid do?

Propionic acid has several functions in the intestine. It is released by bacteria during digestion from fibre-rich foods. This means that intestinal bacteria release propionic acid and other short-chain fatty acids from dietary fibre.

What distinguishes propionic acid from probiotics?

Propionic acid is an aliphatic short-chain fatty acid, in simpler terms a "defined molecule". The collective term for different molecules is probiotics.

What is the difference between propionic acid and propionate?

Concentrated propionic acid is corrosive, tastes sour even when diluted and smells very unpleasant. Ingestion of the diluted solution is absolutely harmless, but quite unappetising due to the unpleasant odour. Propionic acid tends to form salts called propionates. Propionates are white, crystalline and odourless substances compared to propionic acid.

Is propionic acid safe to use?

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) classifies propionic acid as safe.

Are there any interesting studies on propionic acid?
