Mad About Mint!
 
For centuries mint has been well known for its wonderful aroma, fantastic taste, and great health benefits!
Eating mint regularly can have such a positive effect on your health, here are just some of the benefits!
Mint is great for settling a nervous stomach, and particularly for its ability to sooth the digestive tract.

Its anti-fungal properties are thought to play a role in the treatment of asthma and many other allergic conditions.

Mint is even thought to contain anticancer properties. It is known to contain an element which has been shown in studies on animals to prevent a variety of skin, colon and lung cancers.

Rheumatism can be treated with mint baths!

Mint is an effective pain reliever for treating even severe headaches.

A compress soaked in steeped mint tea and applied to the skin may help alleviate arthritis pain, insect sting irritation, painful burns, muscular pain and irritation from eczema.

Applying mint prompts the nerve cells to produce a cool sensation while pain signals are decreased. Topical mint treatments are often used for relieving headaches and toothache.

And don't forget! The antiseptic and antiviral properties of mint are useful for the treatment of colds and flu!
