Peppermint oil - good treatment for IBS cramps - Second Nature Care

Good news if you have IBS.

Slow-release peppermint oil reduced severe abdominal cramping in individuals with irritable bowel syndrome by 66% by day 28 in a new study. Those who had unbearable pain got a 79.4% reduction in pain after taking the peppermint oil. 

The key factor seems to be getting the oil to the intended target in the small intestine. If you take a fast release or slow release formula you can experience new adverse side effects. You want the IBgard delivery system which gets the peppermint oil out of the stomach and into the small intestine. 

Peppermint is known for its anti-spasmodic, anti-carminitive, analgesic and anti-microbial properties.
