Peppermint Tea Health Benefits

Peppermint tea is an herbal tea that is made from the peppermint plant also known as mint tea. Peppermint has properties that may relax the lower oesophageal sphincter, allowing the contents of the stomach to move upwards into the oesophagus.

 

Peppermint is a mix between spearmint and water mint and has high menthol content; it also goes well if you mix it with other herbal teas or even non-herbal teas.

 

It has a very strong aroma, as well as flavour of mint because of its high menthol content. Peppermint herb tea is also versatile, which is one of the reasons it is quite popular, since it can be drunk either hot or cold.

 

Drinking peppermint herb tea before bed can also lead to benefits for your stomach.

 

If you have ever experienced any of the following stomach aches, stomach pains, stomach cramps or diarrhoea you should have tried to soothe your stomach with peppermint herb tea.

 

Those with bad breath can sip peppermint tea to help encourage a more pleasant smell.

 

Drinking peppermint tea on a regular basis is claimed to help to permanently rid you of bad breath symptoms that can be uncomfortable or embarrassing, but the science behind these claims is somewhat debatable.

 

Some claim that peppermint tea can suppress the appetite, which is helpful for those that are trying to lose weight.

 

Others think that giving a baby peppermint tea to sip on can help to manage colic.

 

Still others have found that drinking peppermint tea can help reduce the discomfort that is associated with headaches or migraines.

 

If you consume an excessively large amount of peppermint it can cause cramping, diarrhoea, drowsiness, muscle pain, slow heart rate and tremors.

 

An overdose of peppermint is extremely rare, but to prevent this condition you should take care when you are preparing your peppermint tea.

 

Check the quantity of leaves that are being used in each cup to determine if your dosage is within the recommended limit.
