Mintec Capsules

Mintec Capsules contain a naturally occurring oil extracted from the peppermint plant which is used to relieve the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). They work by relaxing spasms in the muscle of the bowel wall and helping to restore normal bowel contractions, decreasing the trapping of air and other bowel contents and relieving abdominal bloating, wind, discomfort and pain. Unlike some antispasmodic medications, Mintec Capsules act only on the muscles of the bowel and do not affect the rest of the body.

Mintec Capsules are specially coated to allow them to pass through the stomach intact, delaying the release of the peppermint oil until it reaches the intestinal tract to effectively target the site of the pain.
Adults and the elderly:
  • Take one capsule three times a day, preferably before meals. Do not take the capsules immediately after food.
  • Swallow the capsules whole with a little liquid. Do not break or chew them.
  • If your symptoms are particularly severe, the dose may be increased to two capsules three times a day.
  • Mintec should be taken until your symptoms resolve, but may be continued for up to 3 months.
If you experience new symptoms, worsening of your condition or notice no improvement after two weeks of treatment, please see your doctor.
  • Active Ingredient: 0.2 ml naturally occurring peppermint oil from the peppermint plant.
