  • Description

    Candicin is a combination of natural oils that are traditionally used tohelp alleviate digestive disturbances . Gastrointestinal upsets, includingflatulence and abdominal bloating, may result from improper gastric orintestinal transit of food .1 Ginger contains oleoresin, which is responsiblefor its pungent odour .2 Elements in this resin, including shogaols, gingerols, and zingerone, can bind receptors on endocrine cells in the GItract and pancreas .2 This results in increased gastric and bile secretion, gastric motility, and gastric emptying .2 Pancreatic digestive enzymes areincreasingly released, which decreases the transit time through theintestines and helps relieve digestive upsets .2 Ginger also increases theflow of blood to the mucosal layer of the stomach, and inhibits serotoninreceptors, which are responsible for mediating nausea .2 Wormwood oilcontains absinthin, an extremely bitter compound .3 Similar to thepungent ginger, bitter compounds can bind receptors on endocrine cellsin the GI tract and pancreas, synergistically enhancing gastric secretion, motility, and pancreatic digestion .2
