Research published in Phytotherapy Research suggests that drinking two cups of spearmint tea a day, for 5 days could reduce the level of androgens in women with Hirsutism. A second, 30-day study of 41 women with polycystic ovary syndrome, produced similar results.
WHY SHOULD YOU GET OUR SPEARMINT TEA?
WHY SPEARMINT TEA SHOULD BE PART OF YOUR LIFESTYLE?
Spearmint tea is a popular herbal beverage made from the leaves of the spearmint plant (Mentha spicata). It has a refreshing, slightly sweet flavor and is known for its potential health benefits. Here are some of the benefits of spearmint tea:
Digestive Aid: Spearmint tea is often consumed after meals to help soothe digestive discomfort, reduce bloating, and alleviate indigestion. It can relax the muscles of the gastrointestinal tract and promote smoother digestion.
Relief from Nausea: Spearmint tea's calming properties can help alleviate nausea and motion sickness. Sipping on spearmint tea can be particularly helpful when feeling queasy.
Respiratory Health: The menthol in spearmint has a mild decongestant effect and can help open up airways. Drinking spearmint tea may provide relief from symptoms of congestion, sinusitis, and respiratory issues.
Anti-Inflammatory: Spearmint contains compounds with anti-inflammatory properties. Regular consumption of spearmint tea may help reduce inflammation in the body, which can be beneficial for conditions like arthritis.
Hormonal Balance: Some studies suggest that spearmint tea may help regulate hormonal imbalances, particularly in women with conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). It is believed to have a mild anti-androgenic effect, which can reduce excess male hormones.
Mental Clarity and Alertness: The aroma of spearmint can have a refreshing and stimulating effect on the mind, helping to improve mental clarity, focus, and alertness.
Stress Reduction: Like many herbal teas, spearmint tea is calming and can help reduce stress and anxiety. It may promote relaxation and a sense of well-being.
Oral Health: Spearmint has natural antimicrobial properties that can help kill bacteria in the mouth. Drinking spearmint tea or using it as a mouthwash may contribute to better oral hygiene and fresher breath.
Antioxidant Content: Spearmint tea contains antioxidants that can help protect the body from oxidative stress and free radical damage.
Weight Management: Some people find that spearmint tea helps reduce cravings for high-calorie or sugary foods, making it a potentially useful tool for those trying to manage their weight.

HOW TO MAKE SPEARMINT TEA THE NATURAL WAY?
- Spearmint leaves (about 1 tablespoon per cup of water)
Gather Your Ingredients:
- Measure about 1 tablespoon of dried leaves per cup of water.
- Bring a pot of water to a boil. You'll need enough water to make the desired number of cups of tea.
Preheat Teapot or Cup:
- While the water is boiling, preheat your teapot or cup by adding a small amount of hot water to it and then discarding it. This helps maintain the temperature of the tea.
Place Spearmint Leaves:
- Put the spearmint leaves into your teapot or cup.
Pour Hot Water:
- Once the water reaches a rolling boil, remove it from heat and let it cool for a moment, as boiling water can scorch the delicate leaves. Then, pour the hot water over the spearmint leaves.
Steep the Tea:
- Cover the teapot or cup with a lid or a saucer to trap the steam and aroma. Allow the spearmint leaves to steep in the hot water for about 5-7 minutes. You can adjust the steeping time to your taste – a shorter steeping time will result in a milder flavor, while a longer steeping time will yield a stronger brew.
Strain and Serve:
- Strain it, as most of the leaves will settle at the bottom.
- You can add sweetener (honey, sugar, or a sugar substitute) if desired. Adjust the sweetness to your taste.
- Serve your spearmint tea hot, and enjoy its refreshing flavor and potential health benefits.
