Iberogast is comprised of nine different herbal extracts which have a regulatory influence on the entire gastrointestinal tract. Its name is derived from its main component, Iberis amara, which has a tone-promoting and anti-inflammatory effect. Iberogast is a convenient liquid formulation with excellent patient tolerability.
It works in four different ways:
Iberogast is comprised of the following 9 ingredients: Iberis amara, Angelica, Chamomile, Caraway Fruit, St. Mary’s Thistle, Balm Leaves, Peppermint Leaves, Celandine, and Liquorice Root.
Iberis amara: The fresh plant extract of Iberis amara represents the prokinetic component in Iberogast®. It increases the tone of smooth gastro-intestinal muscles and accelerates gastro-intestinal peristalsis. Extracts of Iberis amara are only contained in the medicine Iberogast®.
Angelica: The extract acts to promote digestion, to relieve cramps and to promote gastric juice production.
Caraway Fruit: The extracts act in a microbicidal manner and relieve cramps. It improves the tolerability of flatulence promoting foods (e.g. cabbage, beans).
