Peppermint is a plant in the mint family called Mentha x piperita. It comes from a natural cross between spearmint and wild mint. The oil and leaf are both used as medicine.
Peppermint oil seems to calm down stomach cramps. When it's put on the skin, it can warm the surface, which makes the pain below the skin go away. It might also "cool" the skin and stop itching.
Peppermint is used to help people with IBS (IBS). It is also used for indigestion, bed sores, tension headaches, anxiety, insomnia, memory, and many other things, but there isn't much good scientific evidence to support many of these uses.
Don't mix up peppermint with other mint plants, like English Horsemint, Japanese Mint, Perilla, Salvia divinorum, Spearmint, and Wild Mint. These two plants are different.
Peppermint leaves are full of vitamins A and C, iron, potassium, and fiber, but they are low in calories. They also feel cool and refreshing on the taste buds and throat. So, it goes without saying that they are used in herbal medicines. They are good for your health in the following ways.
◉ Soothe Upset Stomach- Peppermint has chemicals in it that relax the tissues in the GI tracts of animals. Peppermint and other herbal medicines have been shown to help kids with stomach pain in a few studies, but we need more proof before doctors can recommend it. Other research shows that it may also help people who are sick from chemotherapy and throwing up.
◉ Treat IBS Symptoms- Studies show that coated peppermint oil capsules can help with IBS symptoms like gas, stomach pain, constipation, and diarrhea.
◉ Help With Headaches- The active ingredient in peppermint is menthol. Some small studies show it can lessen the pain of migraine headaches. It may also reduce other symptoms like light sensitivity, nausea, and vomiting. A few studies suggest that applying a peppermint oil solution to your forehead and temples can help take away tension headaches, too.
◉ Kill Mouth Germs- Peppermint not only makes your breath smell better, but its antibacterial properties may also help get rid of the germs that cause bad breath. It's thought that it stops bacteria from sticking to your teeth and making a film, which helps keep your pearly whites healthy.
