Enjoy your cup of herbal tea…..Mint Tea
Mint tea is a delicious and refreshing way to boost your health in a number of ways, due to its ability to improve digestion, reduce pain, eliminate inflammation, relax the body and mind, cure bad breath and boosts the immune system.
Improve Digestive Health: Mint tea has been used for thousands of years to sort out a variety of digestive and gastrointestinal conditions. It helps to move gas through the body as it accumulates, rather than causing bloating, cramping, and stomach discomfort. The tea also promotes healthy bowel movements. Diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, and constipation can all be improved with mint tea as it brings the entire system to more optimal levels.
Fever Reducer: Mint tea has menthol as a main component what can cause external sweating, while the menthol cools down body inside. It reduces a fever, and can reduces the associated inflammation and discomfort.
Respiratory Issues: As an antispasmodic, it can also relieves of the irritating sensation that makes you want to cough. By relaxing the muscles of the throat and chest, it can eliminates both cold and flu symptoms.
Nausea and Vomiting: When it comes to being sick, few things are as unpleasant as being nauseous or vomiting. Mint tea is antispasmodic, so it reduces the chances of vomiting and nausea, even in cases of sickness on a boat or a plane.
Immune System: Mint tea has antibacterial properties, which are the cause of many illnesses, including fevers, coughs, and colds. There are also trace elements of vitamin B, antioxidants and calcium, which can help your body uptake nutrients to fight off illness and stay healthy.
Bad Breath: The strong flavor and antibacterial quality of peppermint tea make it an ideal way of improving your breath. It kills the germs that can lead to teeth decay, while the menthol overwhelms the bad smell and leaves your breath fresh and clean!
Stress Levels: The natural sedative and antispasmodic nature of menthol makes it very good at relieving the stress. The anti-inflammatory nature can reduce blood pressure and body temperature, allowing you to deeply relax. This is one of the reason why mint oil is so popular in aromatherapy.
Although it does have the wide range of health benefits explained above the menthol can act as an allergen to some people, and can cause heartburn in others. Both of the reactions are usually mild, but consulting a doctor about possible allergies is a good idea.
I always use organic and natural mint leaves. When you prepare the mint infusion please follow the instructions on the package.
