What are Carminatives?
Carminative herbs are administered to individuals who suffer from flatulence. They act by either resisting the gastrointestinal tract from producing gas or making it easier for the gas to be expelled, thereby reducing flatulence. They are rich in volatile oils which soothe the gut and relieve the gripping pains by regulating gut contraction.
They work by enhancing the peristaltic movement of the gut muscles which helps in expelling the resultant gas and eases the cramps that the person experiences due to wildly wandering gas.
