These capsules are an excellent way of helping improve the symptoms of colic. They are generally non-toxic, readily available and a natural way of helping to improve IBS symptoms. They can be taken three times a day so this provides regular relief and they are relatively cheap to buy and available off prescription. Most patients report some relief with them. If you look at the evidence base for peppermint, studies have generally been quite small. They have shown overall benefit though.
