Kiss your gas & bloating good-bye!

Irritable Bowel Syndrome affects around 15% of the U.S. population with women being more affected than men. Symptoms include gas, bloating, diarrhea/constipation, and abdominal pain. Commonly people take probiotics, gentle fibers (acacia, etc.) and even l-glutamine to help with the issue. But now there’s a completely new product available, one that just may be a game-changer.

Atrantil (pronounced Ah-tran-teel) is a patented formula specifically designed to combat bloating, abdominal discomfort and change in bowel habits. It does so by disrupting methane-producing bacteria commonly found in the small intestine, not the colon.

Here’s how it works. First, peppermint leaf calms the bowel. Then flavonoids from Quebracho extract (from a South American tree) soak up hydrogen produced by your gut bacteria when they ingest fiber. Hydrogen, it turns out, is the very thing methane-producing organisms (known as archaea) use as fuel. That sets up an environment very unfriendly for the archaea and it weakens their cell walls. Last, comes the third botanical ingredient, Horse Chestnut. It binds to an enzyme in the weakened archaea and stops methane production. Just like that!

The therapeutic dose is 2 caps up to 3 times daily with food. Speaking from experience, it might be a good idea to start slowly to see how you react and then slowly increase the dose. That’s because Atrantil starves the archaea and can cause some die-off symptoms. You might experience a foggy head, headache, muscle aches or increased constipation or diarrhea for a day or two. The company states most people notice improvement within 10-20 days.

If you’ve been diagnosed with IBS and/or experience chronic gas and bloating, you might want to give Atrantil a try! We’d love to get your feedback.
