I'm not sure if this really did anything. Didn't notice much of a difference. Possibly had some positive effect but not a huge one.
Strong laxative effect
Posted by Reviewer2731050 on May 05, 2015
These appear to have a strong laxative effect on me. A few hours after taking one, I have a fairly urgent reaction. I didn't think a single capsule would have such a rapid and strong effect. However, judging by the minty aroma and menthol sensation, it is these. Once that is over though, I'm good for the rest of the day. So, they do help, just not how I'd hoped.
Not into it, but still good for some people

I find that this product really burns my insides and the feeling lasts for a long time. You have to take it on an empty stomach, and after wards it just.....burns. I don't like the feeling at all (feels something like heartburn or "stomach burn", so I won't use it anymore, but for people with really bad IBS it's worth a try.

Didn't work as expected, though I may not have given it enough time
Posted by herbalicious on Apr 15, 2012
I used this as directed for 3 weeks and noticed no change. I still couldnt eat my trigger foods. Though this might be because my gastro upsets are likely directly related to food intolerances. It is also possible that this would have been more effective over 3 months rather than just 3 weeks. I didnt notice enough difference to make it worth ordering again. But everyone is different and it obviously works for a lot of people. :)

Peppermint Oil for ibs
Posted by Reviewer3299614 on Sep 20, 2011
I am not sure if this helped or not to be honest. Sometimes i think the oil upset my empty stomach and sometimes i think the peppermint might have helped, but it was cheap and worth trying b/c i have heard good things from other people

Makes my tummy better but also make me burp peppermint :(
Not as good as other similar products I have tried
Posted by Reviewer1614477 on Jun 17, 2011
These seem to repeat on me which means thay have not made it through the stomach intact. I prefer capsules that contain only peppermint.
Does the job, but with a price...

I have to admit, when I do take the peppermint oil caps, my IBS symptoms are quite under control. HOWEVER, my gag reflex feels shot, and I lose my appetite slightly because I feel like I have to throw up in little waves (the peppermint oil is a strong muscle relaxant, which is why it controls IBS so well). So, I dunno. I think that if my IBS was worse I'd have no choice, but since I do, I'll stay away from this stuff for now.

Peppermint Oil - IBS aid
Posted by Reviewer2435370 on Aug 17, 2010
Aside from the occassional reflux of peppermint (like a weird menthol heartburn), this seems to be aiding in treatment of IBS symptoms.
