    Heather's Tummy Tamers Peppermint Oil - 90 Enteric Coated Softgels

    Heather's Tummy Tamers Peppermint Oil Capsules are a medical food for the dietary management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms. Clinical studies have shown that, as part of the diet: peppermint relieves abdominal pain, diarrhea, and urgency; fennel helps relax the gut and aids bloating; ginger contains powerful digestive enzymes. Enteric Coated Heather's Tummy Tamers Peppermint Oil Capsules have been clinically tested and shown to help the dietary management of IBS symptoms in both adults and children.

    Heather's Tummy Tamers Peppermint Oil Capsules are unique because they are specially formulated for intense bowl soothing that addresses global IBS symptoms through the combined effects of peppermint, fennel, and ginger oils. They also have extract enteric coating to improve intolerance for those prone to heartburn or reflux.

    • Helps prevent IBS pain and cramping
    • Long-lasting effects
    • Concentrated, convenient and portable
    • 50% more enteric coating than standard
    • With fennel and ginger oils

    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, Heather's Tummy Tamers Peppermint Oil Caps are enteric coated so 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. Please tell your physician if you have heartburn or reflux before you use peppermint, and follow the instructions for using the Tummy Tamers.

    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.

    What makes Heather's Tummy Tamers special?
    While there are several different brands of peppermint oil capsules on the market, Tummy Tamers are the only ones formulated specifically for the special needs of people with IBS.

    How do they do this?
    Their first concern is that people with IBS are statistically more prone to heartburn, and peppermint is contraindicated for people with heartburn, GERD, and reflux. They have tried very hard to work around this problem, however.

    The Tummy Tamers capsules are enteric coated, which allows them to pass through the stomach without dissolving until they reach the small intestines. This enteric coating is resistant to stomach acid. In fact, they use fifty percent more than the industry standard amount of enteric coating on their Tummy Tamers, to allow as many people as possible to use them for IBS without aggravating any upper GI issues.

    Second, they formulated Tummy Tamers to contain not just peppermint oil but fennel and ginger oils as well.

    Clinical studies have shown that peppermint oil is exceptionally beneficial for IBS abdominal pain and spasms, diarrhea, and urgency (and it will NOT worsen constipation). Fennel helps relax the gut, regulates contractions of the small intestine, and aids bloating and gas. Plus, it's known to have a calming effect on the bowel. Ginger contains powerful digestive enzymes and has historically been a remedy for nausea.

    In addition, both fennel and ginger are traditional remedies for heartburn. Together with the peppermint oil in the Tummy Tamers, they have a synergistic effect on global IBS symptoms without the heartburn risk of peppermint alone. Even though Tummy Tamers have extra enteric coating, which makes them more expensive to produce, they are actually one of if not the most economical brand of peppermint oil capsules on the market!

    How to take Heather's Tummy Tamers
    How you take peppermint oil caps can make a world of difference. The capsules MUST be taken on an empty stomach, as they need to pass through the stomach unimpeded so they can reach the intestines before they dissolve. This can take a bit of time, so for this reason it's best to use the capsules to head off IBS symptoms in the first place.

    However, some people with severe GERD, reflux, or chronic heartburn may still have problems with the peppermint capsules if they dissolve in the stomach before reaching the intestines. The antispasmodic effect you want to happen in your intestines will then occur in the stomach, and this relaxes the esophageal sphincter at the top of the stomach. That can lead to heartburn.

    There are a several measures that can prevent this from happening:

    1. Take the Tummy Tamers on an empty stomach at least one hour before a meal. This gives the capsules plenty of time to reach the intestines before they dissolve. (If you're not prone to heartburn, you must still take the caps on an empty stomach, but you can take them right before a meal.)
    2. Never take Tummy Tamers during or after a meal because the food will delay the capsules from reaching the intestines, and this could cause them to dissolve in the stomach.
    3. Drink just enough cool - not hot - liquid to swallow a capsule easily. While the enteric coating makes them resistant to stomach acid, the capsules are water soluble. Limiting the amount of liquid they'll be floating around in will help them reach their destination without dissolving.
    4. Don't take the Tummy Tamers at the same time as any medication (prescription or over-the-counter) meant to lower your stomach acid. Lowering the stomach acid makes the enteric coating less likely to work (remember, it's resistant to high acid). For folks who need to take these medications, try taking the Tummy Tamers about an hour before you take the acid lowering/blocking medication, and then have your meal.

      Do not understand enteric coating. Figured this would pass through stomach before release. Wrong. Opens right up in stomach. Caused indigestion for the entire day and into the next. Only reason I gave 2 stars is due to quality of peppermint I tasted all day.
