Why is mint so highly regarded for digestive support? It is naturally soothing: Mint has natural properties that seem to soothe digestion, and for centuries, it's been recognized as a perfect complement to a meal. Why take Peppermint Soothe®? It provides fast-acting relief: The three ingredients in Peppermint Soothe go to work right away. Peppermint soothes the intestinal muscle, and the “Plus” ingredients, rosemary and thyme, provide additional benefits. Rosemary stimulates appetite and improves gastric tone, allowing food to be more easily digested, and thyme comforts the stomach and relieves gas. It's enteric-coated for better relief: Research shows that enteric coatings are best for some supplements. While many vitamins and minerals remain unaffected by stomach acid, other nutrients, such as the essential oils of peppermint, rosemary, and thyme, must be released in the intestines for adequate absorption and effect. This combination of peppermint, rosemary, and thyme extracts soothes the intestine with antispasmodic effects. Enteric-coated softgels resist digestion in the stomach, and allow the formula to move to the intestines, where it's released for optimum benefit. Recommendations One enteric-coated softgel capsule between meals up to three times daily.
