Mint might not be popular as a healthy food item as we see it only as a culinary herb or something that keeps our mouth fresh.
But it’s about time that mint got the recognition it deserved.
Mint comes with powerful anti-oxidant properties and has the ability to manage blood sugar levels. It aids digestion and has enough ability in it to soothe an upset stomach due to his antiseptic and antibacterial properties.
The anti-inflammatory nature of mint also makes it act as a relaxant for Asthma patients. But this should be consumed in moderation as too much of mint can irritate the air passages.
Mint also can ease headaches and this is one of the reasons why it is used widely in oils which are used to cure headaches and other related pain.
