Mentha-XL softgels contain potent, pharmaceutical grade peppermint oil.
Mentha-XL does not include food color dyes which have been removed to reduce potential for allergies. Therefore, Mentha-XL softgels are a natural light golden color.
The new Mentha-XL does not include sorbitol which may cause diarrhea. Mentha-XL is free of many common allergens -- food color free; dye free; gluten free; soy free; corn free; lactose free; ginger free; egg free; and nuts free.
Mentha-XL Softgels are made from bovine gelatin and contain trace amounts of Miglyol (fractional coconut oil).
For best results, take one or two Mentha-XL softgels on an empty stomach one half to one hour before each meal with an 8 ounce glass of water.
It is best to avoid concomitant acid reducing agents such as proton pump inhibitors or H2 Blockers. Also, avoid antacids that may reduce stomach acidity and thereby, interfere with Mentha-XL softgels delivery through and past the stomach into the small intestine where it works.
