The fix combination of peppermint/caraway oil in Regimint is recognized and developed in accordance with the German Kommission E. In Germany, there is a government authority, the German Kommission E, which regulates and test herbal remedies. The German Kommission E is similar to the FDA in the United States except they are more involved in testing and regulating herbal remedies. The herbal remedy that is officially endorsed by the German Kommission E as an effective safe treatment for irritable bowel syndrome is a fixed combination of peppermint/caraway oil in an enteric-coated capsule.

A fixed combination is a formula containing multiple herbal ingredients. To be approved the combination must show the following:

  • Each active component must make a positive contribution to the evaluation of the whole preparation.

  • Proof of effectiveness should be established by clinical documentation for each component or for the whole preparation.

  • The components of the fixed combination must have a set dosage for appropriate effectiveness.

  • A positive evaluation is given to a fixed combination when it contributes therapeutic effectiveness for a functional disturbance, syndrome or illness.

  • Finally, the safety of all fixed combinations is to tested by suitable methods.

Approved fixed combinations can be advantageous over single herbs if therapeutic effectiveness is increased or if the side effects of a single component are lessened or negated. Currently, the largest category of use for approved fixed combinations is for digestive complaints (35 combinations).

If you have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or you are a IBS candidate and would like to try the product regimint you can now do so by taking the IBS Challenge.
