NOW Peppermint Gels with ginger and fennel oils is formulated to provide intestinal and digestive support.*
Peppermint Oil is an extremely potent form of the ancient herb Peppermint. NOW has added Ginger and Fennel Oils for their synergistic effects. They enteric coat their softgels to allow the three herbal oils to pass through the stomach and release within the intestines.
NOW Peppermint Gels are enteric-coated to release in a pH of 5.5 or higher. NOW Peppermint Gels are designed to not open in the stomach. This will reduce the small possibility of this oil "repeating". People will not normally taste this after they take them on an empty stomach. In the unlikely event that you experience an aftertaste from this product, try to take them a short time BEFORE a meal, so that they will still pass through the stomach undigested. The food in the stomach could then form a physical barrier to the oils moving back up. These capsules are designed to withstand over an hour of exposure to stomach acid, but will dissolve in less than an hour in the more alkaline intestinal juices.
