Peppermint Tea is a stimulating herbal tea that supports immune, digestive and emotional health. Its aroma and incredible phyto-nutrients invigorate the body for improved health, wellness and vitality.
What is Peppermint Tea
Peppermint Tea, formally known as Mentha piperita, is an herbal tea infusion made from peppermint leaves. It hails from Europe but is now a popular herbal tea around the world. Peppermint Tea is naturally caffeine-free and has a variety of medicinal and therapeutic uses.
Peppermint Tea has many active compounds, the most potent of which is menthol. Peppermint has several menthol esters that give it its taste and are responsible for its cooling, refreshing sensation. The concentration of menthol varies depending on where the peppermint leaves were grown. Peppermint Tea also contains fragrant plant based chemicals called monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. Additionally, Peppermint Tea has fantastic vitamins and minerals including the spectrum of B complex vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, beta carotene and potassium. Plus, it contains a stream of volatile oils, antioxidant compounds, tannins and resins, among others natural elements.
Benefits of Peppermint Tea
Peppermint Tea is a wonderful supplemental companion in several key areas of health and wellness. It is often used as a digestive aid, stress reducer, immune booster, sinus reliever, and weight loss stimulant. Here’s how Peppermint Tea can support your best health:
With a range of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other naturally occurring phyto-nutrients, Peppermint Tea promotes a healthy immune system. While it works to help you not get sick, it is especially great for reducing fevers and symptoms of common colds and the flu when you are sick. Peppermint Tea is also an antispasmodic, which calms the respiratory process by relaxing the throat and chest when you have an irritating cough. It may even reduce symptoms of asthma.
The digestive system benefits in a variety of ways from Peppermint Tea. First, it increases the circulation of bile to keep digestion moving smoothly. Peppermint Tea eases the muscles of the intestines to reduce cramping caused by harsh digestion or indigestion, and also decreases queasiness from motion sickness. Furthermore, it prevents the build-up of gas that can cause bloating and stomach aches. Overall, Peppermint Tea is recommended by herbalists for many digestive issues including irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.
As an antispasmodic and mild sedative, Peppermint Tea acts as a stress and anxiety reliever. Menthol helps lower blood pressure levels within a normal range, relaxes muscles and also reduces body temperature, all of which have a calming effect on the entire body. For these reasons and because sipping warm tea itself is relaxing, Peppermint Tea is used a natural sleep aid.
With an abundance of nutrients, Peppermint Tea is believed to support weight management by boosting the metabolism and suppressing the appetite. Internally and externally, Peppermint Tea naturally reduces swelling that can lead to disease and skin irritation. In fact, Peppermint Tea is especially helpful for regulating hormone-related skin problems such as acne or dry skin, and can even help heal rashes, burns and other skin sores. Plus, Peppermint is known to freshen breath.
