What are Colpermin Capsules?
Colpermin capsules are formulated with peppermint oil as its active ingredient. The capsules provide fast and gentle relief from the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome or IBS by relaxing the bowel muscle to help relieve the painful cramps while at the same time helping remove the pockets of trapped wind that caused bloating.
Irritable bowel syndrome can produce a variety of symptoms, including cramps, bloating, griping, abdominal spasms, diarrhoea or constipation. Colpermin capsules are used to relieve those symptoms.
Colpermin capsules are designed to survive the acid in the stomach and stay intact until they reach the small bowel, where they start working. Colpermin capsules are specifically formulated to relieve the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and provide rapid relief.
Colpermin capsules are protectively coated to allow them to remain in the stomach, allowing the capsules to release the active ingredient peppermint oil directly into the lower bowel. Peppermint oil helps in alleviating the symptoms by reducing the trapped wind, bloating and discomfort, relaxing the muscles in the intestines, and helping to regulate the bowel movements at a normal frequency.
How do Colpermin Capsules work?
Food moves through the intestines by constant contractions and relaxing of the bowel muscles. Irritable bowel syndrome causes these muscle contractions to become painful, creating the symptoms of pain, discomfort and bloating. Peppermint oil is a smooth muscle relaxant which reduces the contractions in order to help alleviate the symptoms of discomfort and pain.
What are the benefits of Colpermin Capsules?
Colpermin capsules are effective in providing rapid relief from the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. Irritable bowel syndrome causes the muscle contractions of the bowel muscle to become painful, creating the symptoms of IBS. Peppermint oil, the active ingredient of Colpermin Capsules, is effective in relaxing the bowel muscle to relieve the pain and discomfort.
How do I use Colpermin Capsules?
Adults from age 15 years and over should take one capsule three times a day. The capsules should not be taken immediately after eating. Avoid eating for 30 minutes to an hour after taking a dose.
If your discomfort and pain are severe, you can increase the dose to a maximum of two capsules taken three times a day.
The capsules should be swallowed whole with a drink of water. They must not be opened or chewed because it will damage the special coating that allows the capsules to reach the bowel. The peppermint oil can irritate the mouth or throat.
