What is Peppermint?
Peppermint is a perennial plant that has been used in cuisine, beverages and traditional wellness practices for centuries. The herb also has a long history of applications that make use of its cool, refreshing flavor, such as toothpaste, mouthwash, chewing gum, confections and candies.
The herb is valued for its aromatic oil, which supplies active compounds including menthol, rosmaric acid and diverse flavonoids. The herb’s notable menthol content provides soothing support for a range of digestive complaints, including nausea, gas, stomach cramps, indigestion, and irritable bowel issues. It is believed to work by easing intestinal spasms, modulating inflammation in the colon, and reducing the sensitivity of gastrointestinal nerve endings. With its many areas of GI tract support, the herb is most strongly associated with digestive comfort.**
In addition to its digestive properties, peppermint has a long history of folk wellness applications – including traditional Chinese, Native American and Ayurvedic practices – for upper respiratory issues including cough and congestion. Peppermint’s bracing scent is also prized in aromatherapy practices for its ability to clear the sinuses and support alertness and mental focus.**
Supplements are typically available in capsule, tablet or softgel form, and may be enteric-coated to release the herb’s active constituents in the intestines. The herb is also available as an ingestible oil that can be taken mixed with water, or as a stomach-soothing tea.**
