Peppermint is a member of the mint family and as such, it is also very good for certain digestive system problems. Mint acts as a muscle relaxant and can calm an overactive digestive tract. You can find it as a tea, tincture or capsules. If you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, use enteric-coated capsules. Just a word of caution, because peppermint relaxes the valve between the stomach and the esaphagus, it can worsen heartburn. I would not use peppermint you you are experiencing heartburn, instead you can try chamomille tea.
