Health News June 5, 2017

Peppermint tea is one of many tea lover’s favorites. It has been known for its soothing and calming properties for ages. It is often the “go to” tea when you don’t know what tea to buy or drink. There are many benefits to drinking peppermint tea that most people don’t know about. Besides its ability to calm your nerves, peppermint tea is quite good for your health. We offer you 6 amazing ways that peppermint tea is good for your overall well-being.

1. Reduces Fevers

Peppermint tea is a great natural fever reducer. We always think of menthol when we think of something cooling for the body, however, peppermint tea has menthol as its main ingredient. This tea takes care of two cravings, that need for something soothing and nostalgic and the ability to cool down the body.

2. Good for Healthy Digestion

Some may be aware that there are teas good for your digestive health, but you may not know that peppermint tea is one of them. Peppermint tea is considered a carminative, which is any substance that helps move gas through the body easily without bloating. This tea has been used as far back as 10, 000 years ago for digestive health and it is still just as good for your digestive tract today.

3. Soothes Nausea and Vomiting

Peppermint tea is an antispasmodic which lessens your body’s chances of vomiting and soothes the nauseated feeling. Peppermint teas not only help with nausea due to eating the wrong foods or having the cold or flu, it helps also with sea sickness and the nausea some people get riding on a plane.

4. Helps with Coughing and Respiratory Issues

The antispasmodic feature we discussed earlier is also good for coughing and other respiratory issues because peppermint tea calms and relaxes the nerves in the throat so that coughing is less likely to happen. At least with peppermint tea around, you can eliminate that annoying cold and flu symptom that keeps you up all night, which is the continuous coughing.

5. Strengthens the Immune System

Yes, peppermint tea can even strengthen your immune system. Its antibacterial properties fights the specific bacteria that causes colds and the flu. A regular diet of peppermint tea may actually help to keep the doctor away during the winter and the change of seasons when we are most vulnerable to catching cold and flu symptoms.

6. Helps to Eliminate Bad Breath

It is always a tough subject, whether it is you that deals with bad breath issues or someone you love. Peppermint tea on a regular basis may be just the right cure. It is the combination of the menthol and its antibacterial properties that helps to get rid of bad breath. Remember to have fresh breath, you must take care of your dental hygiene first, but that along with a cup of peppermint tea daily will surely help to keep the breath clean and fresh.
