Peppermint is a herb proven to help alleviate irritable bowel syndrome. IBS sufferers in Europe are often prescribed peppermint capsules.
Have you ever used peppermint? Did it help?
I didn't actually know there were peppermint capsules. I do know someone who suffers from IBS who will drink a peppermint tea to help sometimes, though, so it's the same idea. It has a nice calming effect.
Peppermint tea is a good idea. I'd rather drink peppermint tea than use peppermint capsules. I think I'm going to start growing peppermint in my herb garden. I already grow spearmint, Moroccan mint and a few other varieties, peppermint will be a useful addition.
