A message from Dr. Brown

As a busy gastroenterologist in the Dallas area, it’s not unusual for me to see half a dozen patients a day suffering from abdominal discomfort and bloating, often made worse by constipation or diarrhea. Frustrated by the lack of effective treatments, I decided to dig deeper. In 2008, I participated in clinical trials for a new drug for irritable bowel syndrome. The drug performed barely better than placebo in the test—and caused lots of adverse side effects. I wanted better for my patients.

In 2012, I formed KBS Research to explore natural solutions that will provide relief for uncomfortable symptoms created in the gut. Through long hours of research and testing, my team and I have developed Atrantíl—a patented blend of three botanicals that relieves bloating and abdominal discomfort accompanied by constipation, diarrhea or both. It’s made in the United States with the highest standards and purest ingredients and has no known side effects.

I’m thrilled to be able to offer my patients—and you—a natural solution that’s proven by science to provide safe, effective relief.
