Peppermint for the stomach: The request could not be satisfied


By the way, doctor: What can you tell me about peppermint oil?

Q. What are the pros and cons of taking peppermint oil?

A. Peppermint oil is extracted from parts of the peppermint plant, an herb that’s been used as a digestive aid since ancient times. Nowadays, it’s a flavoring agent in many over-the-counter health products, including toothpastes and mouthwashes. Menthol, a component of peppermint, is an ingredient in topical preparations for conditions ranging from congestion to muscle aches.

Peppermint oil relaxes the smooth muscle cells that line much of the gastrointestinal tract. It has been most extensively studied as a treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and indigestion. Although clinical studies in people with IBS have shown mixed results, two major analyses found a modest benefit. People with IBS who took peppermint oil reported less flatulence, abdominal pain, and bloating compared with those who took a placebo. Given by enema, peppermint oil can help relieve intestinal spasms in people under going a barium examination of the large intestine.

Unfortunately, peppermint also relaxes the sphincter between the esophagus and stomach (the lower esophageal sphincter), so it can cause gastroesophageal reflux and heartburn. It can worsen reflux symptoms in people with hiatal hernia and — not surprisingly — those with gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD). In studies of people with IBS, peppermint oil (generally 0.2 to 0.4 milliliters three times a day) is taken in enteric-coated capsules, which allow it to bypass the esophagus and stomach before it is broken down and metabolized.

Peppermint oil has other downsides besides its effects on the lower esophageal sphincter. At high doses, it can be toxic to the kidneys, and you should not take it if you have gallstones or active gallbladder inflammation. Finally, check with your doctor if you take any other medication, because peppermint oil can boost the blood level of some medications, including the antidepressant amitriptyline (Elavil, others) and the statin simvastatin (Zocor).

Peppermint for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Peppermint is actually a cultivated plant which was derived from water mint and spearmint (perhaps by accident) in the mid-1700s. It was first grown in England and its medicinal properties were recognized not long after. Peppermint is cultivated today in Europe and Northern Africa. While a lot of people drink peppermint tea or take supplements to help digestion, peppermint is not approved by the FDA to treat any condition.

How Peppermint Is Used In IBS

Historically, peppermint was taken as a tea to treat general digestive problems. It is known to reduce the production of gas in the intestine. Today peppermint is recognized by researchers as being effective for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) when used in its oil form. Peppermint oil has even been approved for use by IBS patients in Germany.

How Peppermint Is Used

Peppermint oil can be taken in either capsules or tea. See your physician or licensed healthcare professional to determine the proper dosage in capsule form.

Drug Interactions

If you take lansoprazole to reduce stomach acid, it may compromise the enteric coating of some commercially available peppermint oil capsules. This can happen using h3-receptor antagonists and proton pump inhibitors as well. Take care when mixing medications and other supplements and peppermint.

Use During Pregnancy

Peppermint is not recommended for use during pregnancy. It is not known if peppermint could affect an unborn baby. It’s also not known if peppermint could affect a nursing baby, so it’s not recommended for use in women who are breastfeeding.


It’s not common, but there are people who are allergic to peppermint. Peppermint oil should never be applied to the face or near mucous membranes. Using more than one form of peppermint at a time, such as tea and oil, is not recommended because it could lead to side effects.

One of the biggest problems with supplements like peppermint, and others, is that because it is not regulated by the FDA, the contents can be variable. It has happened that supplements contain harmful ingredients, or even don’t contain the amount of active ingredient that’s listed on the label. It may not be possible to know exactly what is in any purchased supplement, which is why it is important to seek reputable brands and to tell your healthcare team what you are taking.

Peppermint has the potential to worsen certain conditions. Do not use this herb if:

  • You have chronic heartburn
  • You have severe liver damage
  • You have inflammation of the gallbladder
  • You have obstruction of bile ducts
  • You are pregnant

Talk to your doctor if:

Possible Side Effects

Peppermint oil may cause burning or stomach upset in some people. Enteric-coated capsules may cause a burning sensation in the rectum. If you experience these side effects you may want to stop taking peppermint.

Children and Infants

The strong menthol present in the tea may cause infants and small children to choke. Peppermint was historically used to treat colic in infants, but it is not recommended today. See chamomile for a possible alternative.

The Bottom Line

Peppermint tea is thought to be safe. However, peppermint should be used with caution by people who have serious digestive concerns or by pregnant women. As with any supplement, its use should be discussed with a healthcare provider.

Using Mint to Treat Upset Stomach

Mint is one of the most reliable home remedies for an upset stomach. After all, grandmas often hand out mints to combat indigestion, flatulence, and colic. In other words, they’ve long been using mint to treat upset stomach.

Mint’s Medicinal Value

The two types of mint you’re most likely to encounter are spearmint and peppermint. Although they once were considered the same plant, peppermint actually is a natural hybrid of spearmint. It’s also the more potent of the herbs.

Peppermint owes part of its healing power to an aromatic oil called menthol. Spearmint’s primary active constituent is a similar but weaker chemical called carvone.

Oil of peppermint contains up to 78 percent menthol. Menthol encourages bile (a fluid secreted by the liver) to flow into the duodenum, where it promotes digestion. Menthol also is a potent antispasmodic; in other words, it calms the action of muscles, particularly those of the digestive system.

Menthol’s medicinal value has been borne out in numerous studies with animals and with humans. German and Russian studies show that peppermint not only helps to stimulate bile secretion but also may prevent stomach ulcers. The potent oil is also capable of killing myriad microorganisms that are associated with digestive and other problems.

Other studies, moreover, suggest that menthol may be useful in treating irritable bowel syndrome, a common but hard-to-treat digestive disorder in which the bowel contracts, causing a crampy type of adult colic.

Mint and Colonoscopy

Peppermint oil has also been used to stop painful cramping in patients undergoing colonoscopy. The oil is sprayed directly into the colon through the colonoscope tube. This strategy has been quite successful and is generally safer and cheaper than the drugs used to control cramping that patients have traditionally been given.

4 Essential Oils that may Relieve Bloating And Stomach Pain

To help with bloating there are 4 essential oils you can apply topically to help reduce the effects of bloating. Always use a carrier oil to dilute an essential oil before applying it topically. (Carrier oils include: jojoba, avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, and sweet almond).

1. Ginger Oil
Ginger can be used to soothe a stomach internally, but applying on the tummy for bloating relief is almost as effective and will certainly give you a boost.

2. Chamomile Oil
Chamomile reduces bowel inflammation and eases the cramping pain. It can also eliminate gas in the intestines. It’s also been noted (though scientifically unproven) that it helps rid the body of parasites.

3. Peppermint Oil
Peppermint oil, diluted with a carrier oil, can help with most forms of pain but can help eliminate symptoms of bloating as well. Peppermint calms stomach muscles, reducing pain from cramping. It also helps eliminate gas from the intestines.
You can also use peppermint tea (not the oil) in combination to help clear the symptoms internally.

4. Cumin Essential Oil
Cumin oil is great for pain, cramps, and detoxing. It can help with IBS symptoms like diarrhea and constipation. This oil should only be applied at night as exposure to sunlight can turn it toxic. Pregnant women should NOT use it.

What You Need to Know – Columbia Laboratories Canada

Mint has been one of the most commonly used medicinal herbs throughout history. Its use dates back to ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome when it was typically recognized for its healthful and restorative properties in relieving a variety of digestive and other issues. Mint tea has been a go-to relief for indigestion since biblical times, and in the mid-18th-century mint was actually considered a standard element of the medical pharmacopeia.

But the first thing you need to know about peppermint is that it is more modern, and a more powerful digestive aid, than the mints known in ancient times. While watermint and spearmint originated in Europe, peppermint is a hybrid cross between the two plants and was first described in 1753 by Carl Linnaeus. Since then it has spread throughout the world, and peppermint has been found to have stronger medicinal properties than either of the two originating plants.

Fact One: The Power of Peppermint

The power of peppermint as a digestive aid comes mainly from one of its compounds, an aromatic oil called menthol. When taken orally, menthol helps relieve gastrointestinal problems like indigestion, gas and bloating.

The science behind this is that menthol encourages bile to flow into the duodenum, where it promotes digestion by breaking down fats more quickly. Just in case you were wondering what exactly bile is, it is a fluid secreted by your liver that aids the digestion of lipids in the small intestine.

Menthol also has a very powerful anti-spasmodic effect. For those of you who are not medical doctors, “anti-spasmodic” means that it calms the action of the muscles in your abdomen, particularly those of the digestive tract, allowing painful digestive gas to pass more easily.

Fact Two: You Can Take It Every Day

Peppermint can be taken as a digestive aid in many ways, including peppermint oil capsules, or using the dried or fresh herb to make tea or infusions. One thing you should know is that if taken in tea or infusions, the menthol levels are much lower than when taken in the form of peppermint oil.

This leads to the natural question: How do I ensure I’m getting the right amount of peppermint every day to maintain my optimum digestive health?

Whether or not you experience ongoing symptoms, many herbalists recommend the regular consumption of peppermint because it helps normalize your digestive functions, maintaining your natural body rhythms. That is why taking peppermint in the form of a daily tonic can be more beneficial for your overall digestive health.

Fact Three: It’s Not for Every Condition

Another important thing to know about peppermint is that, although it is a powerful natural digestive aid, there are some issues for which it is not recommended.

If you suffer from heartburn or acid reflux, your condition may be due to GastroEsophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). In that case, peppermint can actually do more harm than good. Since peppermint relaxes the muscle which closes off the stomach from the esophagus, this effect may cause stomach acid to transfer back into the esophagus, making your heartburn feel worse.

Not everyone who experiences acid reflux is bothered by peppermint, but if you notice that minty chewing gum or candy mints trigger your heartburn, that’s a sign that peppermint may not be for you.

Fact Four: The Perfect Balance

Fowler’s Digestive Tonic offers the perfect balance of peppermint oil with natural-source silicon, which enhances the overall maintenance of good health.

Silicon has been studied as a natural element in the rebuilding and maintenance of the digestive tract tissue for years. The silicon compound in Fowler’s Digestive Tonic may also help your overall digestive health, especially considering the fact that as your body ages, its natural levels of silicon degrade.

The peppermint oil in Fowler’s Tonic will not only help you with everything described above but will also balance your oral and intestinal flora to optimize the fermentation of undigested food. What that means, is that it will heal your gut naturally, by safely restoring the balance of healthy bacteria that help break down foods in your digestive system.

90,000 What are the benefits of peppermint for the body? – Rambler / female

Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is a hybrid of water mint (Mentha aquatica) and spearmint (Mentha spicata). The result is a sturdy plant that grows in nearly every country in the world, and its essential oil is a popular flavoring used in foods and many commercial products. MedicForum decided to find out the benefits of mint.

Why is mint useful?

All mint varieties contain menthol, an organic substance that helps soothe muscle cramps throughout the body, improve digestion, protect against food poisoning, and relieve headaches and nausea.The menthol in peppermint has long been used as a cough suppressant and decongestant. Even in the United States, where herbal medicine is not widely used, menthol is a common ingredient in cough suppressants and nasal sprays. Peppermint aids digestion by helping to prevent spasms of the smooth muscles lining the intestines. Research has shown that peppermint can significantly reduce symptoms of gastrointestinal upset and help prevent stomach ulcers.Peppermint tea is used to treat intestinal colic, heartburn, indigestion, and irritable bowel syndrome. Peppermint relieves cramps in the uterus, which can help restore irregular menstrual cycles. However, pregnant women who use peppermint to relieve morning sickness should only drink peppermint tea instead of using the more potent oil capsules made from peppermint to avoid the risk of miscarriage. In addition, the antispasmodic effect of peppermint increases bile production by relaxing the muscles of the bile duct, which helps dissolve some gallstones.Menthol has antibacterial, antiviral and analgesic effects. In laboratory studies, peppermint oil has been found to kill bacteria that cause urinary tract infections and the herpes simplex virus. It is an active ingredient in some creams used to relieve muscle pain, such as Bengey ointment, and in lozenges used to treat sore throats and colds. Peppermint oil also helps relieve pain from insect bites and headaches.

Peppermint is commercially available as finished oil, enteric coated capsules, soft gelatin capsules and liquid extract. Two teaspoons of fresh or dried peppermint leaves in a cup of hot water makes a great tea. You can drink up to four cups a day to treat indigestion, morning sickness, or to relieve constipation. There have been no known toxic or side effects associated with the consumption of peppermint. However, excessive topical use of peppermint oil can cause headaches and vomiting.There are also few reports of gastrointestinal distress from peppermint oil capsules. Long-term and overuse of peppermint oil can lead to liver damage, so a sick person with a liver disorder should use this herb with caution. Earlier, scientists talked about the benefits of mint for the heart.

Peppermint for gastritis with high acidity

Alternative medicine uses many methods to combat gastrointestinal diseases. Among the main additional medicines for gastritis should be called mint. The aromatic plant not only soothes irritated mucous membranes and normalizes acidity levels.

Healing properties of mint

The plant has antibacterial properties, due to which the symptoms of the disease are suppressed and the accompanying phenomena such as heartburn and spasms are eliminated. Fragrant grass can be found in almost every vegetable garden, it grows rapidly, standing out among other plants for its aggressiveness and unpretentiousness.

This fragrant plant contains menthol, which is an essential oil. It is better to collect the medicinal plant before the ejection of the peduncles, at this time in the leaves and stems of the mint there is the greatest amount of valuable substances.

During the period of treatment with mint, an improvement in digestion is noted, attacks of nausea are reduced, the emotional background is straightened, discomfort in the abdomen is eliminated.

Since time immemorial, mint has been attributed to miraculous properties that contribute to the prolongation of youth and life in general.


The plant can help in a variety of painful cases, but precautions should be taken in some cases:

  • with hypotension;
  • varicose veins;
  • individual intolerance.

Before using mint for medicinal purposes, you should definitely consult your doctor.

How to take mint for gastritis

The aromatic plant has one pronounced quality, it successfully fights against the cause of gastritis – the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. However, the healing properties of mint extend to the entire digestive system.

Due to the action of menthol oil, appetite is stimulated, and food begins to be absorbed faster and better, while heartburn is suppressed.

The therapeutic effect is achieved through complex treatment with medications and mint infusions, decoctions and tea.

With increased acidity

Due to an increase in the level of hydrochloric acid, a patient with gastritis has heartburn and belching, “hungry” pains, and a violation of the stool is observed. Mint suppresses these negative phenomena, but its intake should be limited to small doses, otherwise stomach juice will be secreted too actively.

It can be advised to prepare a suitable drink in this case based on mint, yarrow, St. John’s wort and dill seeds. The ingredients are mixed in equal proportions, except for mint, it should be taken in double the volume.

It is necessary to take 3 tablespoons of the collection and pour in a liter of water. Prepare a drink in a water bath for 1.5 hours. The cooled liquid should be taken on an empty stomach for two weeks. It is not recommended to store the drink for more than two days; it is consumed only fresh.

At low acidity

Patients with gastritis and low acidity experience aching pains, burning sensation and a complete lack of appetite during exacerbations. In such cases, mint tea is used to relieve painful symptoms.

This simple but healing drink is made from mint, in the amount of two tablespoons and a liter of water. The leaves of the plant should be poured with boiling water and insisted for 15 minutes. Use a thermos for this purpose. Take tea in the morning on an empty stomach and at bedtime.

To enhance the effect, chamomile, knotweed, and valerian are brewed into tea together with mint. All ingredients are taken in equal proportions and brewed in a thermos until morning.

With atrophic gastritis

All diseases associated with high acidity lead to thinning of the gastric mucosa.

The diagnosis becomes more difficult and dangerous, as any atrophic manifestations take longer to heal and can cause complications in the form of ulcers and erosions.

A decoction based on several medicinal plants is suitable for home treatment. Need to take:

  • 25 g mint;
  • 10 g of flax seeds;
  • 25 g of caraway seeds;
  • 25 g of yarrow;
  • 50 g St. John’s wort;
  • 25 g of plantain;
  • 25 g angelica.

All herbs are poured into 1 liter of water, brought to a boil, cooled and filtered.The medicine is consumed in 1/3 cup before meals once a day.

Plant preparation

Special skills and agronomic knowledge are not required to grow mint. She does not need your care and is able to independently punch her way to life, even to the detriment of other garden plants.

The optimal time for collecting medicinal herbs is the middle of summer, until then valuable qualities are concentrated in the plant. Dry mint greens in a suspended state.Store mint in canvas bags or glass containers. It may not lose its properties for up to two years.

Recipes with mint

It is possible to prevent the complication of gastrointestinal tract pathologies with the help of aromatic tea, mint infusion and other natural medicines. The most effective recipes, tested in practice, are offered for your consideration.


You can take both dry mint herbs and its fresh leaves. 20 g of leaves are poured with boiling water and then simmer in a water bath for 15 minutes.Then the solution is infused and used several times a day.

Curly and Korean mint is best taken in the morning on an empty stomach, lemon balm after three hours, and peppermint drink throughout the day.


Medicinal infusion can be prepared from both mint and other plant species: chamomile, sage, yarrow, St. John’s wort. For cooking, you need a small spoonful of herbs and 200 ml of water.

Insist the mixture for half an hour and take a tablespoon before meals.This is an excellent prevention of any diseases of the digestive system.

Infusion of peppermint leaves


This method is the simplest and most affordable. You can throw a few leaves of the plant into the regular tea you are used to, and a fragrant and healthy drink is ready. If you add chamomile to the drink, then its healing properties will be doubled.

All presented medicines are not the basis for treatment. They only complement the main drug therapy and enhance the effect of treatment.

90,000 benefits and application for IBS, gallstone disease and gastrointestinal problems.

Peppermint oil: benefits and applications for IBS, gallstone disease and gastrointestinal problems.

Peppermint oil has been used for medicinal purposes for many thousands of years. Let’s talk about its benefits for various diseases.

The healing properties of peppermint essential oil (MMP) were discovered by mankind several thousand years ago. The plant is beneficial to health and is used to treat a variety of health conditions.

Composition and medicinal properties

MMP is obtained by water or steam distillation of fresh or dried leaves of peppermint, which were cut at the time of its full flowering.

There are many varieties of this product. They differ in the quantitative content of such main components as free menthol, menthone and ethers.

Attention! Half of the MMPs produced on our planet are manufactured in the USA.This oil is 40-50% menthol.

Peppermint oil for irritable bowel syndrome

In medical studies, enteric-coated peppermint oil capsules have been shown to help with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The latter is a general functional disorder of the colon characterized by a combination of symptoms such as:

  • dyspeptic symptoms – increased flatulence, nausea, lack of appetite;
  • abdominal pain;
  • changes in bowel function;
  • hypersecretion of colonic mucus;
  • constipation or diarrhea;
  • anxiety or depression.

Attention! One of the main features of IBS is hypercontraction of intestinal smooth muscles. MMP prevents this symptom from manifesting itself, which makes it useful not only for IBS, but also for intestinal colic and esophageal spasm.

Health Benefits of Peppermint Oil

This natural product helps not only with IBS, but also with gastroesophageal reflux, non-ulcer dyspepsia, intestinal growth of yeasts and bacteria associated with duodenal ulcer and stomach ulcer.It is also prescribed to people suffering from cholelithiasis.

Peppermint Oil / Caraway Oil Blend

Scientists managed to find out that the healing properties of M P M are enhanced when used together with essential cumin oil. In particular, this mixture is better for treating IBS symptoms. In addition, it is useful to improve the condition of patients with non-ulcer dyspepsia (NAD).

A mixture of caraway seeds and peppermint oil relieves:

  • heartburn;
  • convulsions;
  • sore throat when swallowing, stomach or abdomen;
  • Feeling of pressure (heaviness) or bloating after eating.

Attention! Combining peppermint oil with caraway seeds has been clinically proven to replace certain medications that have side effects such as abnormal heart rhythms.

Benefits of use in the presence of gallstones

At the moment, there are the results of several serious and long-term medical studies with the participation of volunteers. They confirm that the combined use of menthol and carvone in some cases helps to dissolve gallstones.

These two substances are the main components of cumin and peppermint oil. In other words, for cholelithiasis, their mixture can be used as a therapy that is an alternative to surgery.

Recommended dosage

A typical dosage of peppermint oil with 0.2 ml of active ingredient in 1 capsule is 1-2 capsules twice a day between meals.

During flowering, the stems with leaves are collected, ooze, only mint leaves.

It is believed that mint acts on the human body, stimulating and improving digestion, carminative and diaphoretic, relieves nausea and, as people say, “cools in the mouth, but warms up the intestines”.


Used in scientific medicine. In folk medicine, mint drops (pharmacy) and mint vapor are used for adults and children with cramps in the stomach and intestines, with diarrhea, indigestion, and bad belching.Mint decoction, as well as steam and drops are used for bathing young children obsessed with rickets, scrofula and diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.

Peppermint is used primarily in cases of increased gastric acidity (with sour belching), not accompanied by constipation. In such cases, the following mixture is used: peppermint leaves – 15.0 g, bean – 2.0 g, yarrow flowers (baskets) – 15.0 g, dill seeds – 15.0 g, St. John’s wort herb – 30.0 g. 2 tablespoons of this mixture are poured with 2 cups of boiling water, soared for 2 hours, filtered and taken in sips during the day.The same mixture is used for other types of gastritis.

With increased acidity of the stomach with constipation, the following mixture is used: marsh creeper – 15.0 g of yarrow flowers – 20.0 g, St. John’s wort herb – 30.0 g, peppermint – 20.0 g, chamomile flowers – 10.0 g, knotweed herbs – 15.0 g, dill seeds – 10.0 g, caraway seeds – 10.0 g, hop cones seeds – 5.0 g, buckthorn bark – 20.0 g and valerian root – 10.0 g. 4 tablespoons 1 liter of boiling water is poured into this mixture (each spoon with a top) and put in the oven for the whole night to infuse.In the morning on an empty stomach, drink 1 glass of steam, and the rest – in 4 doses during the day, each time an hour after eating. Depending on the degree of constipation, the dose of buckthorn bark is reduced or increased as a laxative that regulates the stomach.

By itself, mint is used to treat heart and lung diseases, especially after bleeding from the lungs. Mint leaves are used for excessive menstruation. In such cases, 20.0 g of leaves are insisted on 500.0 g of boiling water for 2 hours and the patient is allowed to drink.

All patients with high acidity of gastric juice should remember that the best means to “neutralize” stomach acids is first of all potato juice, then mint and St. John’s wort. In order to “neutralize” stomach acids, they also use “peppermint olei” (oil) in water or sugar from 3 to 5 drops. This mint oil, however, to a lesser extent than potato juice, eliminates heartburn, promotes gas release and “disinfects and warms up” the insides.

There is still a few words to say about the mint drops, which are so popular among the people.

Peppermint drops are often prepared by the people themselves. To do this, 1 part (by weight) of finely chopped dried peppermint leaves are poured with 20 parts of 90 ° alcohol; insist the whole day, shaking from time to time, squeeze and filter the wrung out through several layers of gauze or cotton wool. I add to the strained tincture; 1 part (by weight) peppermint oil. Inside, mint drops are taken 10 drops (and sometimes up to 4.0 g) per day for diarrhea, intestinal spasms, cramps in the intestines, poor digestion, nausea, etc.


Mint leaves or whole mint herb is stored in tightly sealed boxes.
