Lauren and Jed Wilson are the creative team behind Uncle Jed's Mellow Belly Mints.
Like many entrepreneurs, they were inspired by their real-world experience. Their daughter was born in 1998 and like many babies, she suffered from reflux, which made her not only spit up, but caused her great digestive pain. A visit to the doctor left them with a prescription for a PPI, a drug that inhibits the production of stomach acid. It has been determined that among other side effects, use of gastric acid inhibitors has been associated with an increased risk for development of gastroenteritis and permanent damage to the digestive system. Now 20 years old, their daughter suffers from chronic heartburn, acute stomach pain and digestive distress. No one should have to suffer like that.
In 2011, Lauren became a holistic health practitioner, hoping to find a better solution to helping her daughter as an adult without subjecting her to a lifetime of antacids and other OTC drugs.
Through the study of natural medicine, she learned ancient healing herbs and their uses for all manner of ailments with an emphasis on digestion.
Lauren and Jed began working together on tinctures and herbal blends for digestive teas, but needed something more portable... Small peppermint candies were the answer. After 6 years of perfecting their recipes and methods, they are ready to present Uncle Jed's Mellow Belly Mints to the world. These hand-crafted pastilles are made in small batches with certified organic herbs and sugar, and they're specially made to soothe the belly without inhibiting the body's natural digestion.
Currently, you can find their amazing mints at farmer's markets throughout Colorado and Arizona.

Word on the Street
Uncle Jed's Mellow Belly Mints are a pregnant lady's prayers answered. I've been using them for several weeks now and have not taken one antacid... NOT ONE! They are refreshing and light and not chalky. Everyone including people with the worse acid reflux should try these they are amazing!
My husband loves them and wants a tin for both cars, the house, and at both our jobs! Haha they are already becoming a necessity in our house 😊😊
I had a horrible belly weekend and not until my 2nd day did I remember my Mellow Belly mints in my house,
purse and office - DUH. So, I took one and within about 15 minutes my belly calmed and I felt much better!
Thanks Uncle Jed!!! 😉🤗
