IBgard® has been developed using breakthrough science that enables peppermint oil including its primary ingredient,
(l-Menthol) to be delivered to the small intestine – the primary site of disturbance in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).


In IBgard’s Site Specific Targeting (SST®), peppermint oil is delivered in the form of solid state microspheres that are pH triggered to act beyond the stomach and release in the lower gut.

IBgard is a medical food specially formulated for the dietary management of IBS. IBgard capsules contain individually, triple-coated, sustained-release microspheres of Ultramen®, an ultra-purified peppermint oil.

In a recent randomized, multi-centered, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, IBgard was shown to start working in as early as 24 hours, and this benefit grew when measured at 4 weeks.* This landmark trial included about half the patients diagnosed as having the IBS-M (Irritable Bowel Syndrome-Mixed) subtype. This IBS-M subtype is estimated to represent the majority** of IBS sufferers and for which there is no approved product.

That is why IBgard is an advance in the dietary management of IBS.

As a medical food, IBgard should be used under medical supervision. IBgard is available nationally in the digestive aisle in CVS, Walgreens, and RiteAid stores.
