Mint: the all-rounder herb

Mint leaves have plenty of benefits, other than cooling and refreshing breath? Take A Look!

  1. A curative herb, mint helps soothe the digestive tract which is why it is so often administered as a herbal tea for gastrointestinal problems. It also eliminates toxins from the body, cleaning the stomach, liver and blood.
  2. The mint plant has sedative effects and disinfectant properties in the form of menthol, limonene, menthone, vitamin C and other antibiotic compounds.
  3. Mint leaves are ideal for relieving symptoms of asthma, flu and bronchitis owing to their antispasmodic properties. The menthol found in mint is a vasodilator of the nasal mucous membrane and helps treat sinus problems. Inhalation of the leaves clears mucous and relaxes the nerves. It also alleviates dry coughs, sore throats, colds, allergies and chest congestion.
  4. Mint oil is used to ameliorate depression, stress, fatigue and headaches, by massaging it over the chest, neck and temples. It has also been recommended for rheumatism, acne, blackheads and ear inflammation.
  5. The aroma emanated by the plant has been proven to curtail anxiety and boost mental performance and alertness. Therefore, drinking mint tea is ideal for students and employees working for long hours.
