2. Good For Your Digestive Health
Peppermint and it’s by-product (oil and tea) have been used as a folk medicine to cure a variety of digestive and gastrointestinal disorders.
Peppermint tea is considered very effective in the treatment of common digestive problems associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. This is a condition that affects the GIT causing gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and stomach discomfort.
Taking this tea in the right dose stimulates bile flow to increase the rate and efficiency of digestion and promote proper bowel movements.
In addition to its carminative effect, it is also an analgesic, meaning it reduces the associated pain of cramps, bloating and indigestion.
This is due to its soothing effect on the intestines and smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract.
