Stool: I know what you’re thinking.
Stool: What does furniture know about flatulence? A lot, actually. Think about it, we’re closer to the problem than just about anyone.
Stool: Which is why I can honestly say… everyone passes gas every day!
Stool VO: Presidents … movie stars … boy bands … supermodels … the scientist that was just sitting on me … your third grade math teacher …
Stool: … and, of course you. Gas is natural and healthy. Which is why you pass it around 13 times a day. But where does it all come from? Ironically, while gas comes out of you, gas doesn’t actually come from you.
Stool VO: You see, living inside your digestive tract are trillions of microorganisms that help your body breakdown food.
Stool VO: As a byproduct of that work, those microorganisms release various gases… like nitrogen, hydrogen, co2, methane and sulfur.
Stool: That last gas is the one that causes all the funky smells.
Stool VO: Normally, you pass that gas in little bits throughout your day.
Stool VO: But sometimes, that gas gets stuck. As more and more of it builds up you feel pressure, discomfort, and bloating.
Stool VO: Now some people think antacids can get rid of that gas. Not true. Antacids neutralize stomach acid. They do nothing for gas.
Stool: If they did, they’d be called ant-gas-ids, not antacids.
Stool VO: Now Gas-X is proven to relieve gas, fast. The active ingredient in Gas-X is simethicone.
Stool VO: This molecule weakens the surface tension of trapped gas bubbles causing them to break apart.
Stool VO: Gas-X relieves your symptoms in minutes. That’s why it’s the #1 doctor recommended gas relief brand.
