Peppermint oil has been shown to inhibit intestinal spasm and relieve gas. A special procedure of coating a capsule containing Peppermint oil prevents the oil from being released in the stomach. Without the special coating, peppermint oil tends to produce heartburn. Dosage is 1-2 capsules 30-60 minutes before a meal, not more than 6 capsules per day.
