Peppermint (Mentha piperita L.) is one of the most widely consumed single plant herbal teas, or tisanes (strictly speaking only the tea plant, Camellia Sinensis, is considered tea, yet in USA, herbal infusions are widely accepted as herbal teas). It is a perennial herb native to Europe that has been introduced into the northern Americas by European settlers. Although people have been taking Mentha since ancient Roman and ancient Greek time, modern peppermint is a hybrid of spearmint (Mentha. spicata L.) and water mint (Mentha. aquatica L.). Spearmint, while tasting very similar to peppermint, has a milder “sweeter” aroma and is more often used in cooking (it’s aroma doesn’t have the overpowering effect that peppermint has). All of the above mentioned Mentha plants grow in areas with high water-holding capacity soil. Many people grow their own peppermint (Mentha piperita L.) in their backyards, dry and use it copiously through the year. Past the harvest one of the most important processing parameters is the drying temperature. Naturally, elevated temperatures are known to evaporate the highly volatile peppermint essential oils especially if the leafs are cut of powdered. Peppermint essential oil extracted from the leaves are used in many foods, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products. Toothpaste companies love using peppermint because of its natural ability to fight cavities and bacteria in the mouth that causes bad breathe. Peppermint has many other applications besides oral health. The menthol in the peppermint serves as a natural decongestant. Recent studies have shown that peppermint may also help increase alertness and long term memory in adults. Stimulate your health today.

 Whole leaf peppermint is known to retain the peppermint essential oil, menthol and methyl salicylate longer compared to its cut or powdered-leaf relatives. Whole leaf should be crushed before use, to release the active ingredients. The crushing enhances peppermint tea effectiveness but it also enhances the flavor. Peppermint tea can be sweetened with a little honey or sugar, but just plain is delicious as well. Preparing the perfect cup: Boil water and let sit for 30 secs to 1 minute. Place the herbs in teapot, strainer, or French press using a ratio of 1 Tablespoon herbs to 8 oz. of water. Pour water over the herbs then cover the container. Steep for 3 to 7 minutes, longer if you want an intense minty flavor. The effectiveness of the brew will be proportional to the concentration, so don’t be afraid to make a dark brew.

 Health: peppermint has a pronounced effect on bloating, gas, calming of uterus and reproducibly gives energy bolts. In our DOA certified facility, workers (that are packing peppermint) are reporting the energizing effects of just smelling the peppermint during the day. Its relaxant and anti-spasmodic effects (reliefs the spasms of the muscles) produces some remarkable effects on the body. Namely, relaxing the intestinal muscles allows a better flow of bile from the gallbladder resulting in better digestion of fat. Such action produces detoxification of the liver and is logically recommended that peppermint tea is to be drank, during, before or after a meal. This mint-after-a-meal custom is dating to ancient Rome. The effectiveness of peppermint tea is such that it can induce GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) or heartburn in people that are susceptible. People with hiatal hernia or kidney stones are advised against consuming peppermint supplements. Nowadays, many product containing peppermint have written cautions warning of these effect.

 IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome): Peppermint is easily the most effective herbal supplement for relief of gastrointestinal problems and its most noted studies are pertaining to IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). These studies are mostly conducted using Peppermint essential oil, as oppose to peppermint tea, but conclusions are simply confirming what has been known since ancient Rome. The most important compounds responsible for peppermint’s effect on human body stem from flavonoids like eriocitrin, luteolin and hesperidin. Naturally occurring flavonoids are subject of scientific research and not surprisingly science is still deciphering the natural pathways by which this age-old remedy effect human body.  The main volatile (easy to evaporate) components of the peppermint-destination-derived essential oil are menthol and menthone. After ingestion, peppermint water infusion is acting in an antimicrobial and antiviral way (recently shown to have virucidal effect on herpes simplex virus). A relaxation effect on gastrointestinal (GI) tissue is well documented while analgesic and anesthetic effects in the central and peripheral nervous system are known with essential oils but not well documented for peppermint water infusions (tea).
