6 Surprising Benefits of Mint

Stay minty to reduce nausea, treat seasonal fever, eliminate bad breath, and more.

  • Promotes Digestion: One of the main peppermint powder benefits is that it helps in getting relief from gas, bloating, and indigestion. Due to its choleretic and bitter properties, it stimulates the secretion of enzymes that promote digestion. The active components in peppermint enhance pancreatic secretion and stimulate the bile flow and solubility of bile.


  • Relives Headaches: Peppermint has pain-relieving properties and is a muscle relaxant that gives relief from certain kinds of headaches. Peppermint oil enhances blood flow and gives a cooling sensation when applied. Applying peppermint oil on the forehead gives relaxation from headaches and soothing aftereffects.


  • Lessens Menstrual Cramps: As peppermint is a muscle relaxant it can be beneficial in aiding menstrual cramps to some extent. Peppermint extract capsules are available in the market and apart from being free from steroids and serve as anti-inflammatory drugs and help in lessening menstrual cramps.


  • Promotes Weight Loss: Consuming peppermint oil capsules helps in curbing the appetite and frequent hunger pranks leading to munching of unhealthy snacks. Thereby it healthily promotes weight loss.


  • Infections: One of the top peppermint powder benefits is that it is rich in antibacterial and antiseptic properties, ideal for treating symptoms like cold, flu, and promoting respiratory health. Again, it is good for our gut health and peppermint extracts may help combat food-borne bacteria like Salmonella, E. Coli, and listeria.


  • Relieves from skin itching: Peppermint oil has soothing effects and helps in calming the itchiness caused in the skin. But do not forget to dilute the oil before application.
