Advanced Science

FDgard® is a medical food specially formulated for the dietary management of Functional Dyspepsia (FD). The combination of caraway oil and peppermint oil (primary component: l-Menthol) has been shown in several clinical studies to be effective in helping manage FD.1 FDgard utilizes SST® (Site Specific Targeting) technology to deliver individually triple-coated, targeted-release, solid-state microspheres of caraway oil and l-Menthol quickly and reliably where they are needed most in FD – the upper belly.

In addition to caraway oil and l-Menthol, FDgard also provides fiber and amino acids (from gelatin protein).
