Most notably, at the 0.2 mL amount used in clinical tests, peppermint oil has the ability to support digestive system health.* Many traditionally have relied on this all natural extract to freshen breath, improve digestion and calm gastrointestinal upset.

Peppermint is an herb that is often found growing wild in central and southern Europe. Peppermint contains particularly high menthol levels, and like many spices and herbs, is widely believed to support digestive system health.
Protocol For Life Balance Peppermint Oil G.I. gels are enteric-coated, so they can safely pass through the stomach in order to be released into the intestines.
Peppermint oil has been classified as a carminative, which is defined as preventing and relieving intestinal gas. (VE Tyler, Herbs of Choice: The Therapeutic Use of Phytomedicinals). Three out of four double-blind trials showed benefits of using enteric coated peppermint oil in calming the intestine.*
