What is Spearmint Tea?
This tea is made from the leaves of spearmint herb which is native to Europe and is scientifically known as Mentha spicata. Unlike many other forms of tea, which use dry leaves and are steeped in a bag or a special tool, spearmint tea is best when the leaves come fresh from the garden and are brewed directly in the boiled water. There are numerous varieties of mint out there in the herbal tea world, but one of the most common types is spearmint tea, which has a sweet taste that is slightly weaker than peppermint, but enjoys all the same benefits – and more!
Spearmint grows up to 1 meter in height with a thick stalk and sharply pointed leaves, which give the plant its name. Able to grow abundantly in a wide variety of temperate climates, this is also one of the most common forms of mint in the world, and its leaves can be used for many different things.
The essential oil from spearmint leaves is also highly valuable and can deliver more concentrated doses of the nutrients and organic compounds that regular drinkers of spearmint tea can benefit from.
Spearmint Tea Benefits
Health benefits of spearmint tea include the following:
Boosts Immune System
One of the most impressive findings of spearmint essential oil was its powerful antibacterial capacity, meaning that it can help to stave off infections in many topical applications. That same antibacterial potential is present in spearmint tea as well, which is why many people turn to the sweet, energizing tea for an immune system boost.
The anti-inflammatory effects of spearmint tea can help your stomach settle down when you’re experiencing any sort of stomach upset or nausea. By calming those inflamed tissues and optimizing your digestion, you can also improve nutrient uptake and eliminate cramping, bloating, constipation, and other unpleasant gastrointestinal conditions.
Balances Hormone Levels
Another interesting effect of spearmint tea is that it can impact the hormonal balance within our body. There are countless different hormonal interactions that define our appearance, behavior, mood, and daily energy cycles, and spearmint tea has been shown to regulate and normalize those chemicals to healthy levels.
A specific hormonal issue that spearmint tea handles, is hirsutism, which is defined as the growth of unwanted hair on certain women’s bodies, due to an unusually high level of androgens. By reducing this ‘male’ hormone and regulating the rest of the body’s hormones, spearmint tea, in a controlled study, was able to measurably reduce the symptoms of hirsutism in a two-week study.
The anti-inflammatory nature of spearmint tea is well-known, and it is commonly used to eliminate headaches and other pains throughout the body, particularly in the joints. This is also an application of spearmint essential oil. The anti-inflammatory compounds in this powerful plant can help soothe sore throats and indigestion by relaxing the spasming muscles of the gut.
