Mintec peppermint oil capsules are a treatment for IBS that uses a natural ingredient to ease your symptoms.
Just three capsules a day can help to ease cramps, trapped wind, bloating, and stomach pain and discomfort. If you’re suffering with IBS and are looking for a treatment that will help to ease your symptoms without interacting with other medications you’re taking, Mintec could be the perfect choice for you.
Mintec capsules contain an active ingredient called peppermint oil, which is a natural remedy derived from the peppermint plant. It helps to ease IBS symptoms by relaxing the muscles in your gut, helping to reduce the muscle spasms that cause pain and discomfort during IBS attacks. It also helps to ease trapped wind and bloating, making you feel more comfortable.
