Solution to America's Gas Crisis Found


Solution to America's Gas Crisis Found

Nationally recognized diet and digestion expert Bill Downs offers free samples of a revolutionary new non-medicinal supplement that can alleviate GI discomfort caused by lifestyle choices associated with dieting, diabetes, overeating, and a variety of digestive disorders

PHILADELPHIA, May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- There's another gas crisis in America, and it has nothing to do with prices at the pump. It's uncontrollable flatulence, a problem that millions of Americans suffer with, silently humiliated - because seriously talking about it is taboo. Now a new breakthrough solution treatment for embarrassing gastrointestinal conditions - such as flatulence (farting), bloating, diarrhea, indigestion, and growling guts - provides gassy sufferers a highly effective natural solution to over- the-counter medications.

Today Bill Downs, the nationally respected nutrition industry expert and author of the Trafon (spell it backwards!) blog, announced the availability of a new, premium quality, proprietary digestive technology that promotes healthy digestive function, and reduces or eliminates humiliating symptoms - such as uncontrollable or exceedingly smelly gas - caused by bad dietary choices, intolerances, or medical conditions. Best of all, Downs is giving away 60 free capsules of his new healthy digestion formula to every person who joins - at no charge - his irreverent and wildly popular Trafon blog, at His digestion formula is not a cure-all, but it will help a large percentage of users, and it might help people to different degrees, depending on the severity of their original conditions.

"It's been reported that excessive gas is the most common consequence of GI distress that people do not want to talk about," Downs says. "Dieters and diabetics in particular suffer in humiliating silence, because the sugar-free foods they depend on are made of artificial sweeteners and substitutes such as sugar alcohols, some of which cause the most noxious and unstoppable gas imaginable. It's a real problem."

Indeed, the list of conditions that can cause uncontrollable gas is long, and many are serious. Over 30% of Americans suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, also known as "IBS". Other conditions that cause chronic gassiness include HIV/AIDS, malabsorptive syndromes, pancreatitis, lactose intolerance, Crohn's disease, colitis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and Celiac Disease. And 52% of visitors to the Trafon blog report they suffer from "constant gas," according to the Trafon poll, located at

Unfortunately, many prescription and non-prescription medications, as well as dietary supplements, also cause excessive gas. Gas-inducing medications include antibiotics (penicillin and derivatives), antiviral medications, cholesterol-lowering drugs, protein supplements, narcotic pain medications, over-the-counter diarrhea treatments, laxatives, and iron supplements.

Now, thanks to Bill Downs and his breakthrough research, people suffering with gastrointestinal distress caused by poor lifestyle choices have a premium quality solution. Downs' complex contains scientifically validated, premium quality, and proprietary ingredients classified as Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS) by the FDA. The formula uses an extremely high 25-40 billion per gram concentration of microencapsulated probiotics, which are time-released at specific GI locations to achieve maximum effectiveness. The formula also contains a proprietary blend of enzymes that promote healthy digestive function, reducing the potential for inflammation caused by undigested food.

People suffering with GI symptoms or disorders can now receive 60 free samples of Downs' new formula simply by subscribing to the Trafon (spell it backwards!) blog at Samples are free of all charges, including shipping and handling, but Bill asks for a noncompulsory $5 donation to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
