1- Carminative effect of Mentha Spicata and Its essential oil is well recognized:
The mechanism behind this effect has not been deciphered yet. It seems, however, to be a result of relaxation of the lower sphincter of the gullet. Menthol seems to be responsible for relaxing the lower sphincter of the gullet, which makes it possible for the gas to escape. The pressure inside the stomach thus becomes equal to the pressure inside the gullet.
In a double–blind, placebo controlled randomized clinical test, 70 patients suffering from chronic digestive system conditions, including flatulence, were given one herbal extract menthol tablet daily for a period of 14 days. Analysis of the results clearly shows that complaints received from those treated with menthol tablets were substantially milder than those received from subjects who were given placebo (P<0.05). Ultrasound measurement results for the amount of gas inside stomach are also indicative of the effectiveness of menthol tablets (P<0.05). 2- Anti-Spasmodic effect: Ant-Spasmodic effects of menthol extract have been well documented. Scientists believe that menthol extract's anti-spasmodic effects and its ability to alleviate cramps of isolated, flat muscles are the result of its inhibitive effect on the intake of calcium into muscle cells. Menthol extract's clinical effect on inflammatory intestinal syndrome has been related to the relaxation of flat intestinal muscles and restoration of proper muscular tone. 3- Treatment of Dyspepsia: A menthol extract containing formula was shown to be effective in alleviating dyspepsia symptoms such as pain, nausea, acid reflux and belching.
