Nature's Way Pepogest Peppermint Oil provides natural gastrointestinal comfort. The essential oil found in peppermint leaves soothes the occasional disruptions in the bowel often caused by nervousness, overeating and/or changes in the diet.
For centuries, peppermint oil has been traditionally used for gastro-intestinal upset, cramps, gas and nausea. Today, modern science focuses on the menthol-rich essential oil found in peppermint leaves.
Pepogest softgels are uniquely enteric-coated to withstand stomach acid and target the release of peppermint oil directly into the intestinal tract. Research confirms that peppermint oil is more effective and better tolerated when protected from stomach acid.

Why do we get the flu in winter?
Being cold doesn’t literally make you catch a cold, but it certainly seems likely how the coldest season is, as a matter of fact, the 'cold' season. Why is there a substantial increase in common colds and flus as soon as it gets cold outside?
The flu really does thrive in winter
There’s no doubt that the flu virus somehow thrives in the cold.
As it turns out, the virus is basically designed to jump from person to person when the air is cold and dry. Studies have shown that transmission rates are highest when temperature and humidity are both low. Because cold air naturally holds less water, low humidity levels are typical for winter.
Even when we make our homes comfortably warm, the air stays just as dry unless we use a humidifier.
But why do viruses thrive in cold air?
Cold air may help the flu virus survive longer outside of a human host, making it easier to linger after a cough or sneeze. And apparently the virus does a better job of circulating in low humidity.
An infected individual exhales virus encased in tiny water droplets, and those droplets evaporate more quickly if the air is dry. If the flu droplet shrinks fast enough, it can become so light that it circulates around in the air instead of falling to the ground.
