My dad, in his infinite wisdom, believes there is nary a stomach ailment that cannot be cured with Mentos and 7-Up (though not too closely together, you wouldn't want to explode). And though I'm pretty sure that's not 100 percent accurate, there is science backing up the use of mint (and ginger) to soothe your stomach.
Since going gluten-free, my stomach is not the warzone it once was, but I do still have some acid reflux to contend with, and my nerves make me a twitchy mess more often than I'd like to admit. I'm trying to get away from popping Tums and their ilk like they are candy, and looking for more natural ways to soothe my innards, so when the folks at Enteral Health contacted me to see if I would like to review their Tummy Drops, I thought I'd give them a try, but I didn't expect to be so thoroughly impressed.
Tummydrops come in two varieties - ginger and peppermint. What's nice about both flavors is that they *actually* taste like real peppermint and real ginger, probably because these bad boys are made with *actual* peppermint oil and ginger. They are all natural, gluten free, and kosher. They've also been formulated by real, live, board-certified gastroenterologists. They taste yummy, and they genuinely do help with upset stomach issues. Let me just say, I love Tummydrops so much that I keep both the peppermint and ginger varieties in my purse, and I've been handing them out to everyone I know who complains of the slightest stomach ailment (or who needs a mint, ifyouknowwhatImean), like a granny handing out hard candies. What can I say, I'm a pusher. Enteral also claims these drops are awesome for pregnant ladies battling morning sickness, so if you or someone you know is having that issue, you might want to give these a try. I myself am not a prego lady, but as someone who is already dreading that part of the child-spawning party, I'm glad to know about these.
