The herb, mint, peppermint, spearmint all belongs to the same family. Today there are over 30 species of mint, after years of interbreeding.
Native to the Mediterranean and Western Asia, used to breed the mint, but all mints contain the phytonutrients that can keep your health in a mint condition. Here is why.

By improving your digestion

All peppermint, mint or spearmint infusion, when prepared properly and when using fresh leaves, stimulates the digestive system to work better. Mint contains volatile oils that are effective at expelling gas from within the intestines. The menthol component of mint leaves acts as a natural muscle relaxer and has been shown to relax the smooth muscle of the gut wall. This helps relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion and acid reflux.

By detoxifying your body

Other studies have indicated mints cleansing properties because it is anti-microbial. It stops over growth of helicobacter pylori bacteria which is the pathogen related to stomach ulcers. It also is effective against E Coli infections which are the most common form of urinary tract infection and are also associated with many cases of food poisoning.

By protecting your health against abnormal cell growth

Phytonutrient called monoterpene in mint leaves have the ability to inhibit certain cancer cells. Several animal studies have indicated that monoterpene’s inhibit the growth of mammary, pancreatic and liver tumors. It also protects against cancer growth in the colon, skin and lungs.

It is good for anti-biotic resistant Staphylococcous aureus (MRSA) which have become a growing epidemic. And last but not least, it provides a powerful defense against Candida and other pathogenic yeasts.

Now, don’t go  thinking that the little tea mint bag that you might have in your kitchen will keep you rocking.  Just think about all the molds that grew there on the shelf of your grocery store for months!, and think about all the toxic irrigation done to those leaves to avoid bugs from reaching it while it sits there in those little fluoridized tea bags that makes our lives “easier”… It sure wont keep you healthy. So here is how to prepare your mint infusion:

Buy the fresh leaves. Maybe you will like to plant your own.

Boil about two cups of water. Immediately remove from heat and immediately add about 5 leaves.

Let it stand for 10 min. or until it stains the water.

Enjoy with some drops of lemon juice. You will love it!DSCN6902

    Mint derives its name from the ancient Greek mythical character Minthe. According to Greek myth, Minthe was a river nymph. Hades, the God of the Underworld, fell in love with Minthe and when Persephone, Hades’s wife, found out, she turned Minthe into a plant, so that everyone would walk all over her and crush her. Unable to undo the spell, Hades gave Minthe a magnificent aroma so that he could smell her and be near her when people trod on her.Away from this mythical world, we know that mint gets its tell tale enticing aroma from menthol
