Almost no one is really aware of the wide range of health beneficial properties in Peppermint.
Okay – so let’s start taking a look at some of the modern scientific investigative studies that are revealing an abundance of potential health benefits from the peppermint plant. These include but not limited to aromatherapeutic, topical, and internal digestible applications. There has been a lot of human-based clinical research compiled for peppermint. The research performed has indicated that indicates this plant has great value in treating a variety of health-related disorders, including:
- Colonic Spasm – Peppermint oil has been studied as a safe and effective alternative to the drug ‘Buscopan’ for its ability to reduce spasms during certain enemas.
- Memory Problems – In the year 2006, a research study was performed and it found that the simple aroma of peppermint enhances memory and increases alertness in the research participants.

- Hay Fever Allergies – Wayback in 2001, scientists held a preclinical study and it found that extracts of the leaves of peppermint inhibit histamine to be released in a human’s body. It indicated that peppermint may be clinically effective in alleviating the nasal symptoms of allergic rhinitis because it could cause histamines to be released in a human’s body.
- Bad Breath – Peppermint oil extract has been found to be superior to the mouthwash chemical chlorhexidine inhibiting ‘Streptococcus Mutans’ driven biofilm formation. This may explain why powdered peppermint leaves were used in the Middle Ages to combat halitosis and whiten teeth.
