I have found these to really work! The bottle says take on an empty stomach, but I don't suggest doing that because you can feel the exact moment when they burst when there is nothing in your tummy. You will feel a warm (its' not unpleasant or anything) sensation in your stomach, but what I really don't care for is that I can taste the oil in my throat when it happens. However, when I eat them with or after a meal, I don't know when they burst. All I know is my IBS-C symptoms are severely lessened. I don't have as much stomach pain, my distention (stomach bloating), and overall uncomfortability is significantly reduced. This, in conjunction with peppermint tea, daily probiotics, and increased fiber in my diet (Benefiber works wonders for me), makes living with IBS-C alot more bearable. Not to sound disgusting (but if you are on this site, you must have been having some stomach pain or digestive disorder but I am a whole lot more regular and I don't hold gas nearly as much since starting my regiment. At least now, if I have gas, I can pass it. I used to toss and turn all night because of horrible bloating and stomach/back pain caused by retention of gas and pressure, but since I have incorporated the herbal side of IBS treatment, I have seen significantly more pos results than I ever had on doctor prescribed meds of the chemical component.

These capsules appear to help me in my problems with I.B.S. and reduce and/or remove the painful gas. I will continue to use these in addition to my doctor prescribed meds to control my I.B.S.

use every day
A step in the right direction.

This is my first try with any kinds of peppermint oil pills or in other form. I usually get an easily... gurgle-ee stomach, and as I experiment and keep track of what foods I'm eating and my subsequent reactions, I notice that the pills certainly help me to have a less panicky stomach. I make an effort to take the pill an hour (usually ends up being thirty minutes) before eating lunch. I've only been taking one pill a day like this and may up it to two, so it might work out even better that way. No adverse reactions from me at all -- and I enjoy the subsequent peppermint breath! I've read of mixed reactions to peppermint pills in general, but for me it is certainly a large step in the right direction.
