Our enteric coated Peppermint Oil supplement is popular with people who want to promote healthier digestion and overall gastrointestinal comfort. People with high stress often experience tightness in their stomach and digestive tract that can interfere with proper digestion. This is sometimes called “nervous stomach”. Peppermint may have a natural calming and numbing effect on the muscles in the stomach and gastrointestinal tract. Enteric-coated peppermint oil capsules are designed to allow the oil to pass through the stomach so that it can dissolve in the intestines. This may help relieve the common symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome such as abdominal pain, bloating, and gas. Peppermint may relax the GI tract so that bile can break down fats, and food can be digested quickly and completely. For many, this may reduce the symptoms of a tight, uncomfortable cramped feeling when they eat meals.
