For centuries peppermint oil has been traditionally used for gastrointestinal upset, cramps, gas and nausea. Today, modern science focuses on the menthol-rich essential oil found in peppermint leaves that soothes occasional disruptions in the bowel often caused by nervousness, overeating and/or changes in the diet.
Pepogest softgels are uniquely enteric-coated to withstand stomach acid and target the release of peppermint oil directly into the intestinal tract. Research confirms that peppermint oil is more effective and better tolerated when protected from stomach acid.
