Containing less menthol than peppermint, spearmint has a milder, minty flavour but still possesses many valuable health benefits that make it popular as a natural remedy. Spearmint is primarily helpful in treating digestive disorders and can act as a gentle tonic to calm upset stomachs, including nausea induced by pregnancy (‘morning sickness’), and IBS. Its soothing, anti-inflammatory properties and refreshing aroma are beneficial to respiratory health - alleviating congestion and clearing sinuses. High levels of iron and potassium in spearmint leaves help boost blood circulation, prevent anaemia, and maintain healthy blood pressure. Spearmint also has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, which can tackle infections and prevent chronic diseases.
