Boots Peppermint Oil Capsules
Advantages: effective and peppermint soothes
Disadvantages: not the cheapest
I have recently not been well and had a dodgy stomach and so after going to the doctor to see what would settle my stomach from being in so much pain due to what I was eating I was told about these Peppermint Oil capsules. They are not something that I've ever heard of before but if anything could help soothe my stomach then I was willing to give it a try as it was affecting me at work and so I went to my nearest Boots store and chose Boots own brand capsules.
These come in a silver sort of cylinder capsule shape plastic container and they are colour coded with blue labels. This has the Boots logo and states that this is Peppermint Oil in 200mg measures which is good for digestive health. The front of the container also states that you should take one a day and that in a single container you get 60 capsules. The reverse of the container has more facts about taking these and it is also in an easy open container.
PEPPERMINT OIL CAPSULES 200mg
These capsules are not suitable for children under 12 years old and if you are pregnant you should consult a doctor before taking these. The peppermint oil helps to support a healthy digestive system and normal functioning off the digestive tract. The container is very easy to open, you just give the lid a light squeeze and then turn it anti-clockwise and then you will have the lid off and then you can see all of the capsules sitting inside, they just look like cod liver oil and other capsules of the same kind.
The reason I chose the Boots own brand over the other competitors on the shelf was that these were to only be taken once a day whereas the others were to be taken up to three times a day which to me seems to be too much and I don't like the idea. So, with these you just take one capsule a day with a glass of water, usually I'll take these after my breakfast just before I go to work. You feel these working within the first hour right away.
I normally find that once I have taken one of these, they do go down really easily but they do cause me to burp a lot after I take them and a peppermint taste comes back on me a lot but I do find that I digest my food so much easier. It also creates a kind of cooling sensation down in my stomach area which soothes it from hurting and although I'd say it takes a full two hours to properly get this to take effect it does make work easier to get through than before I took these.
These are not the worst things to take and they are free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives, they are also gluten free, lactose free and they are not suitable for vegetarians. The container says you should not exceed the stated dose and these should also be stored in a cool, dry place and away from children. These are good value at sixty capsules in a container and they last a good two months if you follow using them daily.
I would definitely recommend these to anyone who suffers from an up and down digestive system whether it be bloating, wind, stomach cramps or diarrhoea as these are all symptoms of a digestive system that is not working well. Moreso in the sense if this is going on for a very long time then you may need to use these, I am pleased so far with these and I am onto my third month now, I no longer have to be ill and suffer at work.
To buy these you can get them in Boots for £5.65 for 60 capsules which is expensive but when you think of the cost over 2 months then really it is only £2.82 roughly which isn't bad. They are on a 3 for 3 offer at the moment on the Boots.com website too.
