Feature Summary

IB Care includes enterically coated peppermint, oregano, and caraway oils that have shown supportive effects for gastrointestinal health.* Peppermint oil is known to support normal gastric motility, maintain healthy gastric emptying, and support normal muscle relaxation in the stomach.*1 It also supports healthy relaxation time of the pyloric valve, helps maintain normal resting pressure of the lower esophageal sphincter, and when combined with caraway oil, supports normal smooth muscle relaxation in the stomach and duodenum.*2–4 Oregano oil may help maintain healthy tissue and gastric comfort.*

Clinically, enterically coated preparations of these oils have been studied in a number of clinical trials. A meta-analysis of 12 randomized trials with a total of 835 irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) patients compared the effects of peppermint oil to placebo.* Compared to the placebo group, participants using peppermint oil had significant improvements in both global and abdominal comfort.*5 These oils have been shown to maintain healthy digestion and support soothing epigastric comfort in controlled trials.*6–11
