Why Your Bloating Remedies Aren’t Working
Having to constantly watch what you eat can be a real drab.
Perfectly planning each meal so you don’t have to spend the day feeling like a balloon is about to pop in your stomach at any time takes effort.
Bloating is a nuisance and can sometimes be accompanied by even more uncomfortable gastrointestinal issues such as diarrhea or constipation.
And most people don’t realize these conditions could be stemming from your gut.
If you suffer from debilitating bloating symptoms, diarrhea or constipation you might have heard of a condition called small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).
You might have also been given the runaround on breath test diagnostics, stool test, and multiple different types of SIBO treatments.
But are you still suffering from small intestinal bacterial overgrowth symptoms?
Perhaps, because if you house microorganisms in your small intestine such as methanogens they tend to be more resistant to your bloating remedies and traditional SIBO treatments.
And you’re probably ready to give up by this point.
But with a little knowledge of how to interrupt the growth of these methanogens, you can get rid of belly bloat, SIBO symptoms, and possibly other concerning health issues.
So What’s Really Going On in Your Gut?
A healthy gut looks like this – most of the gut bacteria live in your colon, which constantly produces gas due to fermentation of polysaccharides in carbohydrates. This gas consists of hydrogen and carbon dioxide.
Sulfate-reducing bacteria living in your colon use the hydrogen to produce hydrogen sulfide gas. While methanogens, which are archaea prokaryotes, use the hydrogen to produce methane gas through a process called methanogenesis.
When your bacteria reside in the colon these gases are usually excreted with your stool, flatulence, or absorbed into your bloodstream to be excreted through your breath. This is a normal process when you eat foods high in polysaccharides. And any of these gases can lead to bloating.
But when these bacteria or methanogens shift to your small intestine because of some “shock” to your digestive system they can cause severe bloating and other SIBO symptoms such as diarrhea or constipation.
A “shock” due to antibiotics, stress, infections, or an unhealthy diet can lead to gut dysbiosis and SIBO. This gut dysbiosis is an imbalance of good bacteria to bad bacteria and/or bacteria growing where it shouldn’t.
Interrupt This Harmful Process to Get SIBO-Constipation Relief
I’m sure you’ve reached out to every friend, every family member, and every doctor you can to get rid of your belly bloat.
They’ve suggested all the advice for bloating remedies – from probiotics, fiber, or antidepressants nothing seems to kick the bloat and other gastrointestinal symptoms.
This is because there’s no “one prescription or one diet” which can treat small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
Although it would be way easier to deal with, SIBO is sometimes not a quick fix condition.
You can absolutely heal from SIBO, but it will take some investigating from your side to figure out what works best for your own body.
And the real kicker is these methanogens that have moved from your colon to your small intestines.
These microbes are a very unique organism and resistant to bloating remedies and traditional SIBO treatment such as rifaximin.
The methane gas produced by methanogens are linked to your SIBO-constipation symptoms.
To get SIBO-constipation relief and get rid of belly bloat you need to interrupt the methanogenesis process.
The Guilty Microbes Leading to Your SIBO-Constipation
Your SIBO symptoms depend on the following microorganisms growing in your small intestines:
- Sulfate-reducing bacteria
- Methane-producing microbes
- Or both
Around 30-50% of the healthy adult population produces methane gas from methanogens. This bug is a normal resident of the 100 trillion bacteria living in your gut.
But, if you’re a primary methane-producer in your small intestines or even your colon, it can lead to extreme bloating and constipation.
This is because of their distinct ability to act as a paralytic in your gut – slowing motility leading to SIBO-constipation symptoms.
Methanogens in the human gastrointestinal tract include:
- Methanobrevibacter smithii
- Methanospaere stadmagnae
- Methanobrevibacter oralis
These ancient microbes are known to inhabit very extreme environments such as hydrothermal vents and hot springs and able to thrive against most odds.
For this reason, methanogens are hard to kick out of your small intestines through traditional SIBO-C treatment.
Recently, methanogens were discovered in cattle intestines and producing large amounts of methane.
Researches found a way to reduce this methane gas in the agricultural world which harms the environment by interacting methanogenesis.
Get SIBO-Constipation Relief by Reducing Methanogens
To get SIBO-constipation relief and get rid of your belly bloat you must kick out these unwanted bacteria. It’s not just about starving off these microbes through diet to find relief but actually interrupting the methanogenesis process of this archaea species.
Atrantil’s does just that – breaks the cycle of methanogenesis with the following natural ingredients:
- Peppermint leaf – Helps calm the area and slows the spasms to allow the other 2 ingredients to work.
- Quebracho – Disrupts methanogenesis by soaking up hydrogen gas, which is the precursor to methane gas production. It also disrupts the cell wall of the archaea lending it’s flavanoid properties to weaken these resistant microbes.
- Horse Chestnut – The final blow to these archaea comes in the form of horse chestnut, another powerful polyphenol. Shutting down methanogenesis, this natural ingredient inhibits the enzyme which allows for methane to be produced and reducing these methane-producing archaea. Secondly, horse chestnut has bactericidal properties to target the hydrogen producing bacteria as well.
Atrantil rebalances your gut bacteria and helps heal gut dysbiosis.
Gut dysbiosis not only leads to uncomfortable gastrointestinal issues but other health concerns such as autoimmune diseases.
Gut health is a reflection of your overall health and Atrantil can help you get your strengthen your healthy gut bacteria with its prebiotic effects.
