We’re coming upon Valentine’s Day and we know you’ll be giving lots of hugs and kisses to your loved ones. Make sure your breath is minty-fresh with delicious Peppermint Tea this Valentine’s Day, and reap many other health benefits too. From easier digestion to a stronger immune system, Peppermint Tea is more than just a breath freshener.
As you may have guessed, Peppermint Tea’s most distinctive ingredient is menthol. It comes from the Mentha piperita leaf and has a variety of medicinal and therapeutic applications. One of the most attractive benefits of Peppermint Tea, especially for lovers everywhere, is its ability to freshen your breath. With a cup after any meal, your breath can be minty and delightful for yourself and anyone around you.
But Peppermint Tea is much more powerful for your health than only a breath freshener. It contains phenomenal antioxidants and other essential nutrients like Vitamin B, calcium and potassium that give you an immune boost to prevent or fight off pathogens, especially bacterial invaders.
Peppermint Tea is often used to ease digestion and reduce unwanted digestive issues such as nausea, vomiting and indigestion. While it not recommended for people with GERD, it can help settle an upset stomach because it is carminative, which means it helps move gas through your body rather than accumulating and leading to bloating and cramping. It is also antispasmodic and analgesic both of which further reduce cramping and pain associated with indigestion.
For these reasons, Peppermint Tea is often recommended to ease symptoms of morning sickness. Nausea and vomiting are typical of morning sickness, whether it’s morning, noon or night. The American Pregnancy Association suggests that pregnant women experiencing morning sickness should sip on Peppermint Tea to curb queasiness and help preserve as much nutrients as possible for moms-to-be who are prone to vomiting.
Being antispasmodic is also helpful in making Peppermint Tea a useful supplement for respiratory conditions. It calms the muscles in the chest to temper coughs that may be due to chronic issues or seasonal illnesses.
Because Peppermint Tea is naturally caffeine-free, it is a great beverage to drink before bed to relax the body. The soothing effects of this minty tea can get you ready for bed and also help reduce any gastrointestinal symptoms that may creep up during the night that could cause wakefulness.
This Valentine’s Day season, freshen your breath and your entire health with Peppermint Tea!
