Properties and health benefits of mint tea or infusion
Relieves an upset stomach
The cooling effects of menthol in peppermint tea help ease an upset stomach in a number of ways. First, menthol relaxes the stomach muscles that can contract and cause cramps. The cooling effect of menthol can improve circulation and relieve inflammation that causes stomach aches.
The second way that peppermint tea helps ease an upset stomach is to get rid of the offending cause faster. The menthol in peppermint stimulates the secretion of gastric juices that can break down food and speed up digestion. Peppermint tea reduces feelings of fullness and can reduce inflammation that causes bloating.
Improves digestion In addition to relieving an upset stomach, peppermint tea can help regulate digestion so everything runs smoothly. A study conducted at the University of Exeter showed that peppermint tea moves gas throughout the body thereby relieving bloating and cramping.
The menthol in peppermint tea also increases bile in the stomach, which helps digest food more efficiently. This reduces symptoms of diarrhea and constipation and can help keep your system working optimally. Menthol relaxes the muscles of the digestive tract, which makes peppermint tea an excellent choice for people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome.
Treat bad breath It is no accident that most toothpastes contain some type of peppermint. With a clean, fresh feel and a menthol that fights the halitosis that causes bad breath, peppermint is a true hero when it comes to fresh breath. The aromatic aroma of peppermint tea helps camouflage bad breath, while the antibacterial properties work from within to kill the germs and bacteria that cause bad breath in the first place.
To reap the benefits of peppermint tea for fresh breath, sip a cup first thing in the morning or when bad breath arises. You can also drink peppermint tea after consuming smelly foods like garlic or onion to neutralize odors. Make sure your peppermint tea is made from real peppermint, not flavorings, for best results.
Fight the common cold and flu
Like most true herbal teas and teas, peppermint tea contains compounds that help fight colds while strengthening your immunity. Drinking a cup of hot tea is one of the most popular ways to relieve a sore throat. Peppermint tea goes one step further by relaxing the throat muscles that cause an irritating cough. Since menthol is a muscle relaxant, peppermint tea helps open the airways, relieves congestion, and relieves severe colds like bronchitis.
The antioxidants in peppermint tea increase circulation and allow white blood cells to travel faster throughout your body, increasing the speed with which your body can fight viruses and bacteria. Peppermint tea has antibacterial properties that help protect you from bacteria that are harmful to your immune system.
Peppermint tea also contains essential vitamins and nutrients that can boost your immune system so you get sick less often. With compounds like antioxidants, B vitamins, potassium, and calcium, your body can more easily absorb nutrients and fight invaders to stay healthy.
One of the main ingredients in peppermint tea is menthol, which has been shown to help relieve fever. Drinking a cup of hot peppermint tea causes sweating, which is the body's natural way of cooling. Extra fluids also promote detoxification so your body can eliminate the cause of cold, flu, and fever.
At the same time, the menthol works internally to lower the temperature and thus lower the fever. Menthol is also a natural muscle relaxant, so it helps relieve aches and pains that accompany a high fever.
Improves awareness and mental focus
Various studies and researchers found that peppermint improves memory and increases alertness. Scientists are undecided as to whether the scent of peppermint or an internal compound is the reason for this increased focus.
Studies have shown that the aroma of menthol stimulates the hippocampal area that controls mental clarity and concentration. The result of drinking peppermint tea is a greater sense of rejuvenation and a renewed focus that can help you get through the day.
For best results, brew a hot cup of peppermint tea and sip slowly. Be sure to inhale the aromas and savor the flavor as your mental acuity sharpens.
Peppermint tea has antispasmodic properties that can treat the feeling of nausea and prevent vomiting. The scent of peppermint can inhibit nausea, while the organic compounds in peppermint help calm stomach muscles that contract and cause vomiting. Drinking peppermint tea before boarding an airplane, boat, or while on board a ship can help cure the feeling of motion sickness or motion sickness.
Peppermint tea is common in aromatherapy and Ayurveda as a way to reduce stress and increase overall well-being and peace. That's because peppermint tea contains natural sedative qualities that help you relax after a long day.
Drinking peppermint tea can help lower your overall body temperature, allowing your body to relax and relieve any inflammation. The anti-inflammatory properties also lower blood pressure, inducing a calm state.
Peppermint tea is naturally caffeine free, so you can drink it at any time of the day without worrying about insomnia. The lack of caffeine also means you won't feel jittery and is the main reason it's used for relaxation and stress relief.
Promotes healthy skin and hair
Like oral products, peppermint is used in a variety of salon skincare treatments to promote a healthy scalp. Peppermint can help treat dandruff by reducing itchiness and soothing a dry scalp. For best results, wash your hair with peppermint tea and let it sit for 5-10 minutes before rinsing.
Peppermint's anti-inflammatory properties can help reduce redness caused by acne, and antiseptic properties help prevent a build-up of bacteria that can clog pores. The soothing effects of peppermint are helpful in treating itchy skin rashes and insect bites.
