Tummy Tamers Peppermint Oil, 90 caps
Peppermint oil capsules, as part of the diet, have been clinically proven to help IBS symptoms, even in children. A recent survey of clinical trials declared peppermint oil capsules the "drug of first choice" for IBS patients with constipation or diarrhea, to alleviate general symptoms, and to improve quality of life.
Peppermint, as part of the diet, helps relieve abdominal pain, diarrhea, and urgency from IBS. Menthol and methyl salicylate, the main active ingredients of peppermint, have calming effects on the stomach and intestinal tract.
Although peppermint is such a powerful smooth muscle relaxant that it can trigger GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) or heartburn in people who are susceptible, because Heather's Tummy Tamers™ Peppermint Oil Caps are enteric coated they do not dissolve in the stomach. Instead, they pass through the digestive tract intact until they reach the intestines. For this reason, Heather's Tummy Tamers™ Peppermint Oil Caps are often very helpful for people with both reflux and IBS who cannot tolerate peppermint in other forms (such as teas or foods). However, individual tolerance levels for peppermint vary greatly among people who are prone to heartburn, so if you have severe reflux you may not be able to use peppermint in any form, even when enteric coated.
Fennel, as part of the diet, helps regulate contractions of the small intestine and aids gas expulsion. Fennel also relaxes the gut, which can relieve spasms of the GI tract. As a result, fennel assists in the dietary management of IBS gas, bloating, and abdominal pain. Fennel is exceptionally beneficial for bloating and gas.
Ginger contains powerful digestive enzymes, and is helpful for a wide variety of gastrointestinal ailments.
Heather's Tummy Tamers™ Peppermint Oil Capsules are considered a medical food, and they are specially formulated to address global IBS symptoms through the synergistic effects of peppermint, fennel, and ginger oils.
A 2005 study in Phytomedicine reviewed 16 clinical trials investigating enteric-coated peppermint oil capsules in IBS. Nine out of 16 studies were randomized double blind cross over trials, five had a randomized double blind parallel group design and two were open labeled studies.
Placebos were used in 12 trials and anticholinergics (smooth muscle relaxant drugs) in three studies as comparator. Eight out of 12 placebo controlled studies showed statistically significant effects in favor of peppermint oil capsules. Average response rates in terms of "overall success" were 58% (range 39-79%) for peppermint oil caps versus 29% (range 10-52%) for placebo. The three studies versus smooth muscle relaxants did not show differences between treatments; in other words, the peppermint oil capsules were as effective as the drugs. The study noted that both anticholinergic drugs and 5HT3/4-ant/agonists (such as Zelnorm and Lotronex) do not offer superior improvement rates over peppermint oil caps.
Taking into account the currently available drug treatments for IBS, the study noted that peppermint oil capsules may be the drug of first choice in IBS patients with non-serious constipation or diarrhea to alleviate general symptoms and to improve quality of life. Enteric coating allows the capsules to pass through the stomach without dissolving and release the three herbal oils within the intestines.Supplement Facts
