The peppermint plant has a long history of use in traditional medicine. One of its most common and most useful functions is in treating problems in the digestive system and reducing the associated symptoms. It is still used today to treat irritable bowel syndrome, combating abdominal pain, bloating, and general discomfort. Unfortunately, the amount of peppermint necessary to treat these issues is irritating to your stomach.
NOW Peppermint Gels are a perfect solution to this problem. While the gels are very concentrated, they are specially coated to ensure their release in the intestines, never even risking stomach problems. Two other potent herbs are included, boosting the already powerful effects. Ginger helps with treating stomach problems and other abdominal pain. Fennel Oil is also useful on its own to treat digestive disorders, as well as counter side-effects of other treatments. Altogether, NOW Peppermint Gels are a great way to relieve digestive problems naturally and without discomfort.
This nutrient rich member of the mint family contains menthol - a potent compound that has been used for centuries to help encourage optimal health and wellness. Most notably, it has the ability to promote healthy digestion and may also be able to normalize enzymatic activity. Many have relied on this all natural extract to freshen breath, calm upset stomachs and ease minor tensions.
