No. Candy is candy, IBGard is a way of delivering peppermint oil.

Chewing altoids as an alterntaive will probably just give you heartburn,

You could try peppermint tea, with no sugar. I have noticed that sugar often gives me a sour stomach. that couldn’t help IBS.

Ordered Tetley Tea Pure Peppermint Herbal Tea, 20-Count and IBGuard peppermint pill. Will try with the free Athabasca university free English exam.
