Most of us will think of mint as being the refreshing piece of chewing gum or even the toothpaste and mouthwash you use but mint as a herb itself has some amazing benefits for your body and health. It is a herb that has been used for hundreds of years for its great medicinal properties.
The Top 3 Health Benefits of Mint
1. Digestion - Mint will help promote digestion and sooth the stomach from indigestion or inflammation. If you feel full after a meal a mint tea will help with the digestion and break down of your food.
2. Weight Loss - Mint is a stimulant and therefore helps to breakdown the digestive enzymes that absorb the nutrients from food and consume fat and turn it into usable energy. So, by adding mint to your diet in various ways can increase the amount of fat being consumed and put to use rather than being stored in the body.
3. Headaches and Nausea - The strong aroma of a mint leaf will help sooth and relive your head and sickness. Mint can eliminate the inflammation and temperature that cause headaches. Balms that contain mint and that can be rubbed on the head will be a perfect cure for any migraine or headache.
