The name Iberogast comes from its main component, Iberis amara, which has an anti-inflammatory effect.
How Iberogast Works:
-Digestive secretions are stimulated through the bitter receptors on the taste buds of the tongue.
-Peristalsis is regulated by exerting a relaxing or stimulating effect on the intestinal smooth muscle.
-Additionally, the lining of the stomach and intestines is protected by the stimulation of mucus production by mast cells. Inflammatory substances are prevented from forming within the intestinal tract.
-Excessive flatulence is prevented by reducing the formation of intestinal gases.
Also available in a 3 pack.
