Minty Relief for Irritable Bowel

Minty Relief for Irritable Bowel

Monday, January 15th 2007

Both adults and children can suffer from an intestinal disorder called irritable bowel syndrome. It is a fairly common condition that causes crampy pain, excessive gas, bloating and changes in bowel habits - constipation, diarrhoea or alternating between the two. The cause is unknown, although symptoms may be triggered by emotional stress or certain foods. Doctors say there is no cure, so treatment is geared toward relieving symptoms.

For more than 4,000 years many cultures have used peppermint oil for its medicinal benefits. Research over the last 10 years shows that peppermint oil's curative powers are not just folklore. Researchers have found that using peppermint oil helps relieved pain and discomfort in both adults and children suffering from irritable bowel syndrome.

Enteric-coated Lifestream Advanced Bowel Support help soothe the symptoms of indigestion including colic, intestinal discomfort, bloating and flatulence. Lifestream Advanced Bowel Support can bring symptomatic relief while using a wholistic approach to the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome.
