Atrantil - Bye Bye Bloating

by Carly Neubert, BA, NC on May 19, 2021

Digestive health: quite possibly one of the most interesting topics to study in nutrition. If we analyze the typical “American diet” and compare it to those of our neighbors to the west in Europe, it’s no wonder that 7-16% of the US population suffers from Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other gastrointestinal pains. This is more than the “Thanksgiving bloat” that most of us feel after a hearty meal of turkey, stuffing, and all the fixings. For some people, this feeling is year-long. We should be asking ourselves, “how do I feel after I eat and what can I do to improve my gut?”

Bloating - Don’t Let it Ruin Your Life!

Have you ever wondered why you suddenly feel tight and swollen after a meal? That’s bloating taking its toll on you. A buildup of gas in the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract), bloating manifests itself into abdominal pain, constipation, and gas.

Have you ever wondered what causes that gas?  It’s the bacteria in your gut (small intestines) interacting with the food you just ate. In a healthy gut, you will have more good bacteria than bad. And all the good bacteria will be in the right ratio, without an overgrowth of any one species. But, when bad bacteria overgrows in your gut, or when one species of good bacteria overgrows, this is known as SIBO Small Intestinal Bowel Overgrowth or dysbiosis. The main symptom of this disorder is bloating within an hour after eating. 

Millions of Americans suffer from GERD, IBS, Crohns, gastritis, and other digestive disorders. Many of these conditions are tied to Small Intestinal Bowel Overgrowth. It is a misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and difficult-to-treat condition. SIBO is diagnosed by a breath test that can be unreliable. And, once diagnosed, the primary treatment is antibiotics. There is a high level of recurrence unless diet and lifestyle are changed.

Atrantil - Your Painful Bloating Solution

Many herbal combinations have been used for dealing with the bacteria that causes SIBO and its accompanying bloat and abdominal pain. Atrantil stands apart from all other formulas because of its ingredients. It specifically targets the problem bacteria in your gut. Atrantil uses naturally occurring botanicals to single out the bacteria and remove it. This provides a majority of users with relief within a few hours of taking the capsules. 

Atrantil Ingredients

There are only three ingredients in Atrantil. The first is peppermint leaf. The peppermint leaf’s job is to calm down the small bowel. While the peppermint leaf is doing the soothing, the other two ingredients can have more success in removing the bloating and discomfort.

The second ingredient is Quebracho extract. Coming from a hardwood tree in South America, this extract soaks up the available hydrogen and makes the environment unlivable for the bacteria. This weakens the cells that produce methane gas which is the cause of bloating and belching. This sets the stage for ingredient #3.

The third ingredient is horse chestnut extract. This extract stops the overall production of methane gas. Upon evaluating the ingredients, processes, and how each ingredient helps one another, it is clear to me that Atrantil is the way to go to say “bye-bye” to bloating.

Starting the Atrantil Journey

This all sounds great and beneficial, but where do you start? It can seem like a lot of unfamiliar and new information. Gut health is not something that we were taught about growing up in school. I understand that this is new to a lot of you, that’s why I’m here! If you’re feeling recurring discomfort and bloating, I recommend taking two capsules up to three times a day. You should notice a change in 10-20 days, on average.

Once you notice a positive change in the level of discomfort you feel, I recommend taking a smaller “maintenance dose” (or taking more in-depth steps to improve your diet and improve your overall gut health). For a maintenance dose, I recommend taking two to three capsules daily. These capsules are peanut-free, gluten-friendly, and vegan-friendly. Pregnant women, nursing mothers, and children under the age of 18 should not take this. As always, consult with your general health provider or schedule a consultation with me if you have additional questions.

Atrantil Side Effects

Side effects on Atrantil are minimal. If the supplement is not taken with food, there have been reported incidents of abdominal discomfort. This can be aided by taking the capsules with food each and every time. If the bacteria amount in the gut is high, you could also feel the effects of the toxins leaving your body. This could be felt in the form of a headache or muscle ache. You can also experience brain fog and anxiety. These are called die-off symptoms. If you’re dealing with these, taking a decreased dosage towards the start could help. I always recommend low and slow.  For more information on how to improve your gastrointestinal health and your overall digestion, check out one of my previous blog posts here: Digestion & GI Wellness.

Let’s Look at the Data…

This is my favorite part! I love looking through the nitty gritty numbers to get to the “meat and potatoes” of a product: their claims and the proven results (or lack thereof). I found two studies that involved Atrantil. The first was a double blind study in 2015 with a placebo, two leading prescriptions, and Atrantil. The results were incredible. 88% of the participants found relief from Atrantil. The two leading prescriptions didn’t perform as well. The innovative team behind Atrantil didn’t stop there, however!

They did another study in 2016 with participants that did not find relief with four other prescriptions for gastrointestinal discomfort, constipation, and bloating. This was another success for Atrantil. 80% of participants found comfort with Atrantil. What does this tell us? This says that in two published medical studies, more than half of the participants found relief with Atrantil. 

The Gut-Brain Connection

Did you know that anxiety can physically manifest itself into gastrointestinal discomfort? The brain and gut are connected via your vagus nerve. Your vagus nerve deals with your digestion, mood, and fear responses. Thus, anxiety disorders can be decreased, in some cases, by helping improve your gut health.

This questions the preexisting belief that anxiety is purely isolated to your brain, and no other body part. That is why I always recommend that my clients analyze their gut health first in order to determine a good route to take regarding their anxiety. By soothing your digestion and providing natural ingredients that have proven effects, Atrantil helps those suffering with anxiety in a nonconventional way that most don’t consider. So before you try a medication for anxiety, I recommend exploring your gut health and possibly giving Atrantil a try.

People Are Talking About Atrantil!

Don G. says, “Thanks, a good product my gastrointestinal doctor told me about.”
Linell S. says, “The only product that I have used that works for me for GI distress, and that does so gently.”
Trish B. says, “This is a real game changer for digestion and bowel movements.”

In Closing…

I could talk about gut health for hours! I have had life-long digestive issues. The more I learn, the more I can address the symptoms and causes. It’s only been within the last decade that bacteria overgrowth has received the research and attention it deserves.

Your digestive system is made up of 4,000 square feet of lining that helps you digest and absorb nutrients. I think that it is about time we pay attention to what our guts are telling us and give them a little bit of help this year. By sharing the information and data that I have gathered regarding digestion and gut health, I hope I can help make you and your family’s guts happy and healthy.
