If you’re like me, you’ve struggled with stomach bloating, excess wind and flatulence for as long as you can remember.The symptoms are unpleasant: you feel sluggish, uncomfortable and unattractive, and it happens seemingly at random.One minute you feel great, the next minute you feel completely full of wind, with your stomach bloated to two or three times its normal size.
Just like the causes are innumerable, the treatments for this condition are equally countless.

Imagine I told you that this cure eliminates flatulence and clears bloating without the adverse effects connected to antacid use for example, gastric acid reflux and an elevated risk of development of kidney stones?
This wonder remedy is peppermint oil.
What is peppermint oil?
Peppermint oil is simply the fragrant oil from the peppermint plant.Its use is varied and is a component of many products including toothpaste and chewing gum.This wonderful natural remedy naturally tones the stomach, liver, and intestines.This remedy has also been used to successfully treat ulcers, headaches, nausea, cystitis and symptoms of asthma.The remedy has appreciable antiviral properties that have been used in herpes treatment.
What its mechanism of action against bloating?
Bloating can result from many diverse causes.There are 2 main causes of bloating for which peppermint oil has a significant effect:
- IBS better known as the Irritable Bowel Syndrome that has been speculated to arise from contractions occurring in the lower intestines and colon.Peppermint oil has an ‘antispasmodic’ action which relieves and calms these spasms.This not only relieves bloating but also other common symptoms of IBS are flatulence, stomach pains, and diarrhea.
- Accumulation of undigested food in the lower intestines.This could be cause by many states such as poor dieting, quick eating or consuming excess fluids during meals.When the undigested food ferments, flatulence and bloating occur due to production of excess gas.
Peppermint oil naturally contains thymol and eugenol, both of which balance intestinal flora (the ‘good’ bacteria which is an important factor in healthy digestion) and reduce the fermentation of undigested food.
How is peppermint oil taken?
You had better take the essential oil rather than the plant since the oil is 70 times more potent.
To treat bloating peppermint oil can be taken as capsules that you can either consume or drink as peppermint tea.
- Peppermint tea simply comes as tea bags, made in a similar way as you would make a regular cup of tea (but without the milk).I find it best to drink peppermint tea after meals for best effect.
- The capsules can be acquired from a health-food store, pharmacy and are also prescribed by physicians.They come coated in either enteric or soft gelatine coats.I advise you try the enteric coated capsules first.Enteric coating is rather resilient and is only digested after reaching the lower intestines where the capsules are really needed. Gelatine-coated capsules are digested in the stomach thus impairs their efficacy and also results in an aftertaste that is not very pleasant.
After eating takes some capsules with a glass of water; they can also be taken when you feel discomfort.
Abdominal bloating can be caused by a variety of reasons, and it’s important to locate the actual cause so as to avoid it in the first place.However, whenever bloating hits and you require an effective solution, I suggest peppermint oil.
Peppermint oil will really help relieve your bloating symptoms.
