Peppermint Oil has been recommended for centuries by traditional herbalists for the support of healthy digestion. More recently, it has been found to support normal gastrointestinal function. NOW Peppermint Gels are enteric coated to allow passage through the stomach and release within the intestines where it can be helpful in providing relief from occasional minor bowel discomfort.
Customer reviewsBetter than a prescription
I have IBS and have tried prescription medicines with some relief, but never total. I started taking these before lunch and supper and noticed a big difference. No more bloating, gas and painful cramps. However, I did have to go back to one a day at my noon meal , because it was causing diarrhea in the mornings. I also take a probiotic every day. Between the two, I am off from my prescription medicine and feeling much better. I would recommend that you try it and experiment with the dosage. It may not work for all, but I am sure it did work for me.
