What is Meal-Triggered Indigestion?

Upset stomach
Difficulty finishing a meal

What Causes Meal-Triggered Indigestion, and Where Do the Symptoms Occur in the Digestive System?

The underlying cause of meal-triggered indigestion is not well understood. It occurs in the upper belly, above the navel. In meal-triggered indigestion, the stomach does not expand normally in response to a meal which means the food eaten backs up in the stomach and in the upper part of the small intestine, which may impact the process of movement of food through the digestive tract.

FDgard® capsules are designed to deliver a unique combination of caraway oil and l-Menthol (the key active component of peppermint oil) to the site of disturbance – to help manage your occasional symptoms.
