Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a cup of coffee in the morning, and to be honest, not so sure I could actually function or do my job without it! But like many things in life, moderation and common sense are key. So what better way to try something different and give your body a little R&R with some fresh herb mint tea in the afternoon and evening.
Studies have shown that a component in peppermint oil has been shown to stop the growth of pancreatic, mammary and liver tumors. Animal studies have shown this component to protect against cancer cell formation in the colon, skin and lungs. Peppermint also eases inflammation. Compounds in peppermint are beneficial to asthma, and have also been shown to inhibit fungus and stop the growth of many kinds of bacteria. Peppermint relieves bloating, calms stomach muscles, and improves bile flow and as a result food passes through the intestines more quickly.
Well, the above maybe true, but all I know it tastes mighty fine, and just nice to add a little change into one’s day every once in a while…
TC’s tip of the day: Either grow your own mint or buy a fresh bunch in the shop. Once home, pop it in a plastic bag with water in the bottom, put it in the fridge and it will last for well over a week! Amazballs!
