Keep your digestion in mint condition

Peppermint is a common ingredient in our toothpastes and chewing gums, and is the key ingredient in chasing away that dreaded waft of bad breath.

In gum form it is mindlessly popped into the mouths shortly before meetings or dates, then quickly chewed and spat out.

With paste, the concentration in the different brands determine whether its ‘fresh breathe all morning’ or a session of ‘searing the gums’.

That is however not the only benefit.

A bag of Peppermint tea a day is a sure way of ensuring that your digestion is in tip-top shape! Just don’t add milk…

Having a cuppa in the morning or in the evening is enough and results can be seen in about two weeks. In my opinion it works better than Weetabix!

“Peppermint calms the muscles of the stomach and improves the flow of bile, which the body uses to digest fats. As a result, food passes through the stomach more quickly.”

‘Mint tea is caffeine-free and though there have been no clinical trials, several studies have suggested that Peppermint can be recommended to relax irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, vomiting and headaches.

It is also believed to control mild asthma and intestinal gas.

No side effects have been reported with prolonged usage of the ‘mint tea, which can either be taken in pre-made tea bags or brewed from scratch.

Fancy a cuppa?
