Eupeptic originates from the Greek words "eu" ("well, easily") and "peptein" ("to digest"), which, when combined, form the Greek word "eupeptos" ("helping digestion").

Eupeptic shares roots with the word "pepsin," a substance that helps digestion. That's also where Pepto Bismol, a stomach-soothing medication, got inspiration for its name.
