Peppermint tea is a delicious and refreshing way to boost overall health in a variety of ways! Drinking peppermint has shown to greatly improve digestion, reduce pain and inflammation, reduce stress, and aid in weight loss. Peppermint has also been used as a natural internal cooling agent, making it a treasured remedy for reducing fevers in children and adults and “hot flashes” in menopausal women.
“In vitro, peppermint has significant antimicrobial and antiviral activities, strong antioxidant and antitumor actions, and some antiallergenic potential.”
