Mint’s not just a great appetizer or palate cleanser, it’s also a great food to aid in digestion. It activates our salivary glands, the very first step in the digestive process, and the enzymes your body produces through this will help with digestion overall. Mint’s also extremely effective at settling an upset stomach, and can help clear up congestion in your sinuses. To top it all off, this amazing herb is also a natural stimulant that can help improve your mood when you’re feeling down. Not bad at all!
