The following are some of the many benefits of spearmint tea:

Hirsutism

Hirsutism (extreme growth of facial and body hair) is a predicament many female suffer from. It is usually caused by high levels of men sex hormones (including testosterone). In one study, performed at the Suleyman Demirel University in Isparta, Turkey (and published in Phytotherapy Research), men sex hormone levels decreased significantly in female after drinking two cups of spearmint tea a day for five days. An increase in female hormones were as well noted.

Sinus predicaments

To help drain and soothe swollen sinus passages, add one cup of boiling water and a couple of tablespoons of spearmint tea in a shallow bowl, lean over it with a towel over your head (to trap in the steam), and breathe through your nose. Steam can be very hot so be careful you do not burn yourself. It is best to keep your face about 10-12 inches away from the bowl.

Gastrointestinal predicaments

Drinking a refreshing cup of spearmint tea can recover digestion and help treat nausea, gas, diarrhea, and heartburn.

Sore Throat

To soothe a sore throat, you can either gargle with some warm tea or you can drink a glass of iced tea.

Other

Calming nerves, relieving menstrual cramps, freshening bad breath, and treating fevers are other spearmint tea benefits.
