Heather's Tummy Care organic peppermint tea ( http://www.helpforibs.com/shop/teas/pmint.asp ) is a medical food specifically sourced and formulated for the dietary management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms. Our new crop of peppermint tea has the highest volatile oil content our organic farmers have ever seen.
As it's the volatile oils that provide digestive benefits, the higher the volatile oil level, the greater the medicinal value of the tea. Clinical studies have shown that peppermint is exceptionally beneficial for IBS abdominal pain and spasms, diarrhea, and urgency (and it will NOT worsen constipation).
In addition, Heather's Tummy Care peppermint tea, whether loose or in tea bags, is made from very large leaf mint cut and sift grade, and never finely milled into a typical low quality tea bag cut grade. Our tea bags are jumbo-sized, and contain an average of two to three times more tea per bag than other brands. They are packed in very generous quantities, as they are meant to be used daily for IBS symptoms, and a canister of Heather's Tummy Care peppermint tea bags has 36 jumbo bags (3-4 times more teabags per container than other brands).
While the volatile oil level of the peppermint tea is high, the cost is not. A recent price comparison showed that at just 9.9 cents per gram, Heather's Tummy Care peppermint tea was half the price of typical drug store and health food store tea brands.
Heather's Tummy Care peppermint tea is USDA certified organic. This means, among other things, that the mint is guaranteed free of: pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides, GMO (genetically modified organisms), preservatives, additives, irradiation, and there is no animal testing. Organic materials and processing are significantly more expensive (for example, bulk organic peppermint costs four times more than conventionally grown peppermint). But, Heather's Tummy Care peppermint tea prices are actually significantly less expensive than non-organic brands.
Additionally, a comprehensive review of 97 published studies (published as the "State of Science Review" by The Organic Center) comparing the nutritional quality of organic and conventional foods has shown that organic plants contain higher levels of 8 of 11 nutrients studied, including significantly greater concentrations of the health-promoting polyphenols and antioxidants. This review concluded that organically grown plants are 25% more nutrient dense, on average, than conventionally grown plants.
According to Heather's Tummy Care CEO and HelpForIBS.com ( http://www.helpforibs.com/ )founder Heather Van Vorous, herself an IBS sufferer, "It isn't enough to get a good value for an IBS treatment - people must also see great results."
For Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms such as abdominal pain, spasms, diarrhea, and urgency, Heather's Tummy Care peppermint tea offers both.
