Spearmint comes from the same family of plants as peppermint, but is a different species. Used in traditional medicine for centuries, Spearmint is also acknowledged by Ayurveda, India’s traditional medical system, to sooth colic in infants, reduce nausea and help relieve other gastrointestinal issues.
Another interesting benefit of Spearmint Tea is that it relieves hirsutism. Hirsutism is a condition where women get a large amount of dark, coarse hair in unwanted places, such as above the lips, on the chin and on the chest and back.
This is caused by having higher levels of male sex hormones, which can be caused by certain medical conditions or medication. Research has shown that women who drink 2 cups of Spearmint Tea a day showed a decrease in male hormones and an increase in female hormones to relieve this condition.
