Potent Oil Soothes IBS Symptoms [WOW!]

For some people, fending off conditions like heart disease and diabetes is the least of your concerns.  

If you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, you’re likely in this category. 

Who has time to worry about blood sugar when you’re stuck in the bathroom, doubled over with painful cramping or constipation?  

Or who wants to run on the treadmill when you’re always running to the bathroom with another bout of diarrhea? 

IBS might not be life-threatening, but it certainly is life-altering. 

Fortunately, there’s a powerful oil that has been shown to alleviate symptoms in 75% of people who use it. (And it’s NOT CBD oil.) 

As far as bowel conditions go, irritable bowel syndrome is the best of the worst.  

But try telling that to someone with IBS. 

Because while it isn’t an autoimmune disorder, and it won’t increase the risk of colon cancer, it comes with painful, embarrassing symptoms that make you never want to leave the house. 

If that’s you… you can finally come out of hiding.  

Because research shows that peppermint oil can provide, fast, powerful relief of IBS symptoms. 

In one study, patients with IBS were either given an enteric-coated peppermint capsule or a placebo twice a day for four weeks.  

Amazingly, 75% of the individuals receiving the peppermint oil reported significant reduction in IBS symptoms. 

A second study (this time in children) produced the exact same results. 

And in a third study, taking peppermint oil 3-4 times a day for a month led to improvements in flatulence, stool frequency, and abdominal pain in a whopping 80% of the individuals. 

It’s impressive—and worth paying attention to—when three separate studies produce virtually identical results. 

If you’re looking for relief from IBS, and you want to give peppermint oil a try, make sure it’s in an enteric-coated capsule.  

This coating prevents the capsule from dissolving in your stomach (where it can actually cause unpleasant symptoms like indigestion and heartburn) and keeps it intact until it reaches your intestinal tract – right where you want the targeted treatment to be delivered. 

You can find these supplements at your local natural health store.
