Soft Peppermint HL contains peppermint oil, which is a naturally occurring carminative herb extract with antispasmodic, antimicrobial, and antioxidant activities. These properties enable peppermint oil to:
- Help relax the muscles of the bowel wall, which relieves stomach cramps and abdominal pain.
- Relieve flatulence and prevent bloating by reducing gas buildup.
Studies have also proven the effectiveness of peppermint oil in the management of symptoms of Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other functional gastrointestinal disorders like colic and dyspepsia. IBS is a common chronic digestive tract disorder characterized by relapsing abdominal pain and altered bowel habits.
