Functional gastrointestinal disorders are defined by Rome-IV as disorders of gut-brain interaction. Dyspeptic symptoms are often accompanied by typical irritable bowel symptoms, such as irregular bowel movements and flatulence. A recently published secondary analysis suggests that menthacarin – a proprietary combination of peppermint and cumin oils – is not only an effective and safe treatment option for functional dyspepsia, but can also benefit patients with concurrent irritable bowel symptoms.
