Each capsule contains 90 mg of ultra purified peppermint oil (l-Menthol: 41.5 mg).
Other ingredients include: microcrystalline cellulose, gelatin, methacrylic acid copolymer, hypromellose, methlycellulose, triethyl citrate, polysorbate 80, FD&C Yellow #5, and FD&C Green #3.
In addition to peppermint oil, each IBgard® serving of two capsules provides approximately 640 mg of fiber and approximately 400 mg of amino acids (from gelatin protein). These are intended to also help normalize the lining of the gut (gut mucosal barrier) and also help normalize the reversible, localized, often temporary, low-grade immune activation.6 The l-Menthol in peppermint oil has anti-inflammatory12, antispasmodic13, visceral analgesic14, carminative (anti-gas)15 and antibacterial properties.

IBgard® is manufactured in the United States under Good Manufacturing Practices with no added fat, sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, lactose, egg, soy, peanuts, shellfish, tree nuts, milk, or fish. Possible allergen conditions cannot be excluded. If there is a serious medical condition, IBgard® is not recommended.
