Benefits of Peppermint

Peppermint is a very commonly used herb. People grow it in homes. It has so many constituents which are useful for CNS regulation. We can use it in different form. Mostly its leaves are used.

Peppermint is a “cooling” plant. This means you’ll feel cooler when you drink a cup of peppermint tea or when you use it topically. The plant contains a substance called menthol that provides this cooling sensation. Peppermint is in a family of plants with many others, including spearmint, apple mint, and pineapple mint, all of which have different flavors. I’ve even seen chocolate mint! (Dr. Donna grows chocolate mint in her herb garden.) Adding any variety of peppermint or its relatives to herbal mixtures is a delight. My first choice of medicinal mint is always the original peppermint plant, although the others work also. Peppermint is an example of an herbal stimulant. Drink a cup of chilled peppermint tea if you have a dreary task ahead of you, and it will wake you up and help you focus. Peppermint is also terrific for abdominal distress.

Enteric-coated peppermint oil capsules sometimes provide relief for people suffering with irritable bowel syndrome. And if you ever have gas, it’s time to grab the peppermint. In a matter of minutes, the gas will be gone! The advantage of herbal stimulants such as peppermint is that they’re caffeine-free, so they don’t give you that jittery feeling that sometimes occurs when you drink black or green teas or coffee. Too much caffeine can take a toll on the adrenal glands, as well.

If you want to be active light and fresh take its juice with lemon. That will definitely work. Thanks for your time. Stay tuned for more. Enlist your precious suggestions in comments. If you want me to write on your favorite topic comment below.
