Did you know?

Mint has some pretty powerful medicinal benefits that can contribute to your overall health and wellness. I’m sure we all know it helps with digestion, that’s why our grandmother would give us a nice cup of peppermint tea to soothe an upset stomach. But what might surprise you is that it’s also antimicrobial and anti-fungal which means it can kill bad bacteria that lies dormant in your digestive system and it can also fight off the fungus that grows as a result of taking prescription antibiotics.

Another interesting fact about mint is that it is currently being used in research to determine if it has cancer-fighting components. Medical professionals are discovering that mint is cytotoxic (cell-killing) because of a phytonutrient called perillyl alcohol. This means it has the ability to kill off certain types of cancer cells. And because it is so rich in antioxidants, mint can also be used to take preventative measures against various types of cancer.
