Benefits of Peppermint tea:
1. Relieve Stomach Problems
Peppermint is considered a stomach healer that can assist with irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, stomach aches, diarrhea or constipation. People often find it easier to consume peppermint tea because it does not contain sugar like peppermint candies that may further irritate the stomach.
2. Aid Digestion
Peppermint acts as a cooling carminative that helps to relieve pain in the digestive tract by helping gas to move through your stomach and intestines after you have eaten. In many cultures peppermint will be served after you have eaten to promote bile flow so your body will digest food more easily.
3. Relieve Nausea, Fever and Cough
Herbalists claim that peppermint leaves can create a tea that will help to keep nausea at bay and remedy a “jumpy” or queasy stomach that many people feel when travelling in a car, airplane or boat. The antispasmodic qualities of peppermint can help to prevent vomiting that often comes with nausea or stomach aches in these conditions. The analgesic properties of the tea can help to calm and relax the stomach and intestinal muscles that can help to get rid of irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea or stomach cramps.
4. Boost Immune System
Many people consume peppermint tea when they are suffering from the cold or flu because it is full of calcium, vitamin B and potassium that can give the immune system a boost. Some claim that sipping peppermint tea can help keep mild asthma cases under controls, though medical professionals doubt this information. These ingredients can help to relieve the symptoms of your illness and prevent you from getting ill in the future.
5. Reduce Bad Breath
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.
6. Relieve Stress
The taste and smell of peppermint are known to help relieve stress. Drinking peppermint tea is found to help people sleep more easily at night because of these stress-relieving properties. Some believe that this stress relief that comes with sipping peppermint tea is linked to the immune system boost that this beverage provides.
7. Other Benefits
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.
