I tried these capsules because a friend told me they would help with my symptoms of IBS. I find that they do work - I take one about 45 minutes before supper and I find that the next morning my symptoms are greatly reduced. The peppermint oil is soothing to the digestive tract and seem to calm down the spasms that occur in IBS. The downside to these capsules is that although they are not supposed to dissolve in the stomach, I find that within about an hour of taking them, I have a noticeable minty taste in my mouth which lasts for a few hours. This is rather annoying, especially when I am trying to enjoy my dinner. But I will continue to take them because my IBS has gotten quite bad and I'm thankful to have found something that helps.
