Peppermint Tea Benefits for Health and Wellness

Fragrant, soothing peppermint tea benefits our health and wellness in so many ways. 

If you have an upset stomach, are feeling anxious or stressed, or are battling a cold or stubborn cough, pull out the peppermint tea from your tea stash, and brew a cup for quick, natural, effective relief. 

Here are some of the many benefits you'll enjoy with a cup of peppermint tea (this tea has wonderful topical benefits, too!).

Stomach-soothing peppermint tea

Peppermint is an excellent source of menthol, and the menthol in peppermint tea can help to relax and calm your stomach and provide relief from nausea, vomiting, or an upset or troubled tummy.

Peppermint tea relieves flatulence and the discomfort of gassiness, too, and will leave you feeling less bloated (an effective tisane for those days during your period when you feel bloated!).

If your stomach tends to act up while you're traveling, why not stow some peppermint teabags in your purse or carry-on bag for a simple, natural remedy for upset stomach? 

Or, take a thermos of soothing hot peppermint tea or refreshing iced peppermint tea along on your travels in case you begin feeling carsick or seasick.

Improve digestion with peppermint tea

Not only does this aromatic herbal tea soothe your stomach, but it can benefit your entire digestive system.

Peppermint tea relaxes the muscles in your digestive tract, encourages proper peristaltic movements, and increases the flow of bile and other digestive juices, helping to keep everything working and moving as it should.

Peppermint Tea Benefits

Because peppermint tea relaxes and soothes the digestive system, and relieves emotional stress and anxiety, as well, this tea may help to prevent hemorrhoids.

Calming peppermint tea can help to lessen the symptoms and discomfort of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). This tea's antispasmodic benefits may reduce the frequent, sporadic, painful stomach and intestinal muscle spasms that can accompany IBS.

Peppermint herbal tea can be an effective remedy for relieving the pain of duodenal ulcers, too.

Support your liver and gallbladder with peppermint tea

Drink peppermint tea regularly to help keep your liver in good working order and improve the flow of bile from your liver to your gallbladder.

This cure-all herbal tisane can also provide quick relief from a painful gallbladder attack. And, regular consumption of peppermint tea may be an effective addition to your overall treatment plan for dissolving small gallbladder stones.

Not just a cold-weather tea!

We tend to think of peppermint tea when the weather begins to turn colder, and that nip in the air has us reaching for more seasonal teas... But peppermint tea isn't only an autumn and winter beverage! Try some iced peppermint tea or add a few fresh peppermint leaves to another favorite iced tea for a healthy, refreshing spring or summer brew!
