    Heather's Tummy Tea Organic Peppermint Extra Large Tea Bags - 36 Tea Bags

    Heather's Tummy Tea Organic Peppermint is a medical food for the dietary management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Clinical studies have shown that peppermint, as part of the diet, relieves abdominal pain, diarrhea, and urgency from IBS. Heather's Tummy Tea Organic Peppermint is unique because it is formulated to contain a very large leaf size and a high volatile oil content; it is harvested and packed to be as fresh as possible; and it is processed for minimal volatile oil dissipation. It is the volatile oils in peppermint that make it so effective for the dietary management of IBS symptoms. Menthol and methyl salicylate, the main active ingredients of peppermint, have calming effects on the stomach and intestinal tract.

    Heather's Tummy Tea is packed in very generous quantities because it is meant to be used daily as a medical food for IBS; brew a delicious cup of tea several times a day, every day, as part of your dietary management of IBS symptoms. Heather's Tummy Teas Peppermint is certified organic and is guaranteed to be the freshest, strongest, and most delicious fennel tea available! If you're used to drinking fennel tea from store-bought tea bags, you'll find the difference in strength and taste of Heather's Tummy Tea nothing short of astonishing.

    Heather's Tummy Tea is sourced and specially produced for IBS-specific purposes and results, in several ways:

    Extremely high volatile oil levels. Why does this matter? Because the volatile oil is the component within the tea that yields the medicinal benefits. The higher the volatile oil level, the stronger the cup of tea, and the greater the benefit for IBS symptoms. Their current peppermint crop has a volatile oil content of 2.95%. This is extreme - a percentage of 1.8% to 2.0% is considered high!

    You can actually see the oil rising to the surface of the peppermint leaves in the field. This is what their farmers watch for so they know when to harvest the fields at the optimum volatile oil level. In the close up below, one of their peppermint plants has tiny little droplets of oil surfacing on its leaves, which are visible in the photo.

    Very large leaf size (cut and sift grade, the largest cut available in the organic market). Other teabag brands use "teabag cut" herbs, which are very finely milled. This is so the tea will flow through teabag machines. But, the more finely you cut an herb, the more volatile oil is released and dissipated, and the weaker the final cup of brewed tea will be. (They actually customized their own teabag machines so that they could run large leaf peppermint through their machines.)

    Special jumbo-size teabags, which give an average of two to three times more tea per bag as other brands.

    USDA certified organic. This means, among other things, that our herbs are guaranteed free of: pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides, GMO (genetically modified organisms), preservatives, additives, irradiation, and there is no animal testing.

    Organic materials and processing are significantly more expensive. But, our tea prices are actually significantly less expensive than non-organic brands.

    In addition, a comprehensive review of 97 published studies (published as the "State of Science Review" by The Organic Center) comparing the nutritional quality of organic and conventional foods has shown that organic plants contain higher levels of 8 of 11 nutrients studied, including significantly greater concentrations of the health-promoting polyphenols and antioxidants. This review concluded that organically grown plants are 25% more nutrient dense, on average, than conventionally grown plants.

    Packed in very generous quantities, as this tea is meant to be used daily for IBS symptoms. They offer 36 Peppermint Tummy Teabags per canister. This is 3-4 times more teabags per container than other brands, which means you will have enough tea on hand to use it regularly, which is how it works best for IBS.

    The end result? Peppermint Tummy Tea is exponentially stronger and more effective, and a better value, than other brands.

    Peppermint Tummy Tea is the only brand of medicinal strength peppermint tea for IBS they're aware of, and one sip is all it takes to tell the difference. It isn't enough to get a great value for your IBS treatments - you have to also get great results. For IBS pain, spasms, and cramps Peppermint Tummy Tea offers both.

    About Mint
    Mint is one of the oldest of herbs. It was used by the ancient Assyrians, and was common to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who recognized its pain-killing properties. The mint-after-a meal custom in fact dates back to ancient Rome, and Pliny, the first-century Roman historian and scientist, included mint in his Natural History in 77 A.D. Mint was not used formally in medicine until the mid-18th century, but mint tea has been a favorite cure for indigestion since Biblical times. Modern peppermint is actually a hybrid of water mint and spearmint, and has stronger medicinal properties than either of the two originating plants.

    Peppermint tea is extremely useful for IBS cramps and relieving painful abdominal spasms. Peppermint is anti-bacterial, increases gastric juices, and helps relieves gas and nausea. Peppermint also contains essential oils that stimulate the gallbladder to secrete its store of bile, which the body uses to digest fats. This makes Heather's Tummy Tea Organic Peppermint a wonderful digestive aid for heavy meals. It also improves the function of the muscles that line the stomach and intestines, relieves diarrhea (it will not cause or worsen constipation), and has a calming, numbing effect on the entire GI tract.

    Peppermint is such a powerful muscle relaxant that it can trigger GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) or heartburn in people who are susceptible. If you are prone to these upper GI problems, choose the Peppermint Caps (which dissolve in the intestines, not the stomach) or Fennel Tummy Tea instead.
