The chamomile is useful for treating dyspepsia, including spasms and inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, bloating, flatulence and eructation. It is effective to prevent and treat peptic ulcers, and in vitro studies indicate that alphabisabolol has anti-ulcer activity. The ginger root is effective in treating digestive disorders, spasms of the digestive tract, colic, intestinal gas, bloating and loss of appetite. The lemon balm is used in the symptomatic treatment of digestive disorders (epigastric bloating, slow digestion, belching, flatulence) and in the adjuvant treatment of painful components. The peppermint leaf provides relief of gastrointestinal and biliary spasms and minor digestive symptoms. It is effective in relieving symptoms of irritable colon because it is an antispasmodic that relaxes smooth muscles of the intestines.
The elderflowers are traditionally used to facilitate the functions of the digestive and urinary eliminations. The angelica is known to stimulate appetite, relieve discomfort or light peptic or intestinal spasms, bloating and intestinal gas. The fennel seed has carminative and digestive properties. It contains several biological active components, one of them; anethole, helps reduce the intensity of intestinal spasms and increase motility of the small intestine. The blessed thistle is useful to treat dyspepsia and inappetence (loss of appetite). The bitter principles it contains, including cnicine, stimulate the salivary glands and trigger increased secretion of gastric juice, which stimulate appetite and promote digestion.
