From Mojitos to gum, it’s likely you’ve encountered this common herb. But did you know this pleasantly sweet leaf also has several health benefits?
Spearmint contains a compound called carvone, that has been shown to soothe an upset stomach by relaxing the muscle contractions in the gut.
In studies, spearmint has been shown to relieve nausea, abdominal pain and bloating.
That’s not all it’s good for; it helps freshen your breath, balance hormones, fight bacterial infections and it may even improve memory.
