It’s a HUGE problem for lots of seniors… and nobody EVER talks about it.
Nobody, that is, except ol’ Jack…
Let’s face it… lots of us have trouble with swallowing as we age.
Especially if you try to eat a piece of bread… or meat… or raw vegetables, it can feel like something is stuck in your throat.
There’s actually a name for this disorder—dysphagia.
Sometimes there is pain… sometimes swallowing is downright impossible.
But here’s the good news – it turns out that a common herb might help you swallow better and move food through your system more easily.
Peppermint oil is extremely helpful for people with esophagus disorders, including dysphagia.
According to the Medical University of South Carolina, 63 percent of their patients with esophagus problems end up feeling much better when they supplement with peppermint oil.
Peppermint is a wonderful supplement for those who have difficulty swallowing because it has few side effects and can be taken as needed.
On top of that, it’s fairly inexpensive… and you can get it practically anywhere.
Peppermint has also been found to help with irritable bowel syndrome.
Specifically speaking, the oil helps prevent spasms in your digestive tissue.
Use peppermint to relax your throat muscles and improve your swallowing. Heck, use it for almost anything muscle-related.
Peppermint oil is known to be therapeutic as a muscle relaxer.
For digestive and swallowing issues, you’ll typically see peppermint oil sold as a capsule – look for a kind that’s “enteric coated.”
