Relief of symptoms related to abdominal discomfort, especially in IBS
Abdominal discomfort and IBS can manifest through different type of symptoms like:
Buscomint, your multi symptom treatment for abdominal discomfort
Buscomint is multi symptom treatment based on peppermint oil for the 3 in 1 effective relief of abdominal pain, cramps and bloating. Contains 24 gastro-resistant soft gel capsules.
How does Buscomint work
After swallowing the BuscoMint® capsule, the release of the natural active ingredient, peppermint oil is delayed by a coating of the capsule (enteric coating). The capsule travels down the digestive tract and once it reaches the distal small bowel, peppermint oil is released and then begins to exert the local relaxation effects on the bowel muscles (antispasmodic action).
In addition to the antispasmodic action, peppermint oil also appears to have the ability to secrete bile from the liver and antifoaming effects which further aid in decreasing bloating, and thus help in effective relief from abdominal discomfort and pain especially in IBS.
Who can take Buscomint
Buscomint® can be taken by adult and adolescent patients over 12 years of age and who weigh at least 40 kg. Not suitable for children under 12 years of age.
What is the maximum dose I can take
The recommended dose Buscomint® is to take a maximum of three capsules in a day (i.e., One capsule, 3 times a day, to be taken 30 minutes before meal with plenty of liquid) for one or two weeks until your symptoms resolve. You must talk to a doctor if you feel worse, or do not feel better after two weeks. If your symptoms persist, the capsules can be continued for periods up to 3 months per treatment course under medical advice.
