Spearmint Leaf Reviews

Spearmint, also simply called mint, is in the same family as peppermint but is a different species. According to the Natural Standard website, spearmint has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. Ayurveda, which is India’s traditional medical system, acknowledges spearmint for its ability to soothe colic in infants, reduce nausea and help relieve other gastrointestinal issues such as flatulence, stomach aches and irritable bowel syndrome.

Chemical constitution of Spearmint Leaf

The composition of Spearmint is presented in. Thirty-four compounds were identified, representing 99.9% of the total compounds. It contains 50.6% oxygenated monoterpenes, 45.1% monoterpene hydrocarbons, and 2.8% of sesquiterpene hydrocarbons. The main constituents were carvone (40.8% ± 1.23%) and limonene (20.8% ± 1.12%), followed by 1,8-cineole (17.0% ± 0.60%), β-pinene (2.2% ± 0.25%), cis-dihydrocarvone (1.9% ± 0.49%), and dihydrocarveol (1.7% ± 0.31%). It yield of this Tunisian variety of spearmint was 1.1% and it can be ascribed to the carvone/limonene chemotype. In fact, there is large variation in the chemical composition of Spearmint, wild as well as cultivated, around the world. Indeed, a series of chemotypes have been described in previous studies, with prevalence of pulegone, carvone, linalool, piperitone, piperitone oxide, menthone/isomenthone, pulegone/menthone/isomenthone, and pulegone/piperitone.

Health Benefits of Spearmint Leaf

The medicinal benefits of spearmint are particularly impressive, many of which can be enjoyed in any form. Let’s take a closer look at the health benefits of this powerful variety of mint.

Antibacterial Property

The most common association of spearmint is with fresh breath, but its role in mouthwashes and toothpaste are not solely to keep your breath smelling good. The natural [3] antibacterial and antimicrobial nature of menthol and other organic compounds in spearmint help protect your mouth and throat from infections, including those that can damage dental and gum health. Bad breath is actually called halitosis, which is caused by bacteria below the gums, so spearmint keeps you healthy and smelling great.

Respiratory Health

Spearmint tea has a significant impact on the health of your respiratory system due to its naturally soothing and anti-inflammatory qualities. It can help relieve sore throats and tightness in the chest, alleviating congestion and irritation. According to experts, spearmint’s powerful aroma can also help clear up sinuses and even increase mental clarity.

Aids in Digestion

Spearmint has a number of roles to play in the digestive system, particularly as a gentle tonic to ease an upset stomach. It is popular [4] during pregnancy to prevent morning sickness, nausea, and vomiting, but can also be used by others suffering from such gastrointestinal issues as excess flatulence, cramping, or bloating. IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) seems to be increasing in recent years, and spearmint tea or chewing directly on spearmint leaves is often recommended to treat or manage the condition more effectively.

Remedy for Nausea

Spearmint is considered an anti-emetic herb, which means it works to lessen or alleviate nausea and vomiting. Ayurveda promotes it as a remedy for vomiting during pregnancy. In a study published in “Ecancermedicalscience” in 2013, scientists looked at the effect of spearmint on nausea and vomiting in chemotherapy patients. Compared to the placebo group, patients administered spearmint oil experienced significantly less nausea and vomiting within 24 hours after consumption. There were no side effects to the spearmint, leading the scientists to conclude it’s both safe and effective.

Hirsutism Remedy

Hirsutism is the condition of a woman having a large amount of dark, coarse hair on unwanted places, such as above the lips, on the chin and on the chest and back. It’s caused by having higher levels of male sex hormones, which can be caused by certain medical conditions and drugs. The University of Maryland Medical Center recommends drinking 2 cups or spearmint tea a day to treat hirsutism. In a study published in “Phytotherapy Research” in 2007, 12 women with hirsutism were given 1 cup of spearmint tea twice a day for five days. By the end of the study, their levels of male sex hormones had decreased and female hormones increased. The scientists concluded that spearmint could be used to treat mild cases of hirsutism.

Reduce Inflammation

In a study published in the Chinese medical journal “Zhejiang Da Xue Xue Bao Yi Xue Ban” in 2008, scientists investigated the effects of spearmint oil on inflammation in rats. Rats induced with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease were given spearmint oil daily for three weeks. By the end of the study, the scientists found that destruction of lung tissue diminished. They concluded the spearmint oil had a protective mechanism and decreased lung inflammation and oxidation. The effect of spearmint tea on inflammation in humans has not been determined.

Kill Bacteria

In a study published in “Microbios” in 2001, scientists looked at the effect of spearmint oil on various types of pathogenic bacteria, including E. coli and salmonella, in test tubes. They found that the spearmint oil inhibited growth of all bacterial strains they tested for. The larger the amount of spearmint oil was applied, the larger effect it had on inhibiting the growth of the pathogens. The scientists concluded spearmint has an antibacterial effect. Spearmint is commonly associated with cleanliness, which is why it’s used in mouthwashes, soaps and other products for cleaning. The antibacterial effect of spearmint tea in the human body has not been confirmed, however.

Spearmint Leaf Side effects

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or on medication, consult with your doctor before adding spearmint tea as a major beverage in your diet. While this is considered a mild tea, it is better to ask your doctor, in case there are potential interactions with any prescribed medication.
