Some of the health benefits of spearmint

Spearmint is a pleasant aromatic herb, it’s packed full of numerous health benefiting antioxidants, vitamins and phyto-nutrients.

Its leaves and stem parts carry many essential oils, such as menthol, but unlike peppermint, spearmint leaves contain only small amounts of menthol, 0.5% compared to 40% in peppermint. Less menthol content makes this herb less pungent with a more subtle fragrance.

The herb is very low in calories (about 43 calories per 100 g), and contains no cholesterol.

The main essential oil in spearmint is menthol. Other important chemical components of spearmint are a-pinene, ĂŸ-pinene, carvone, cineole, linalool, limonene, myrcene and caryophyllene. These compounds in mint can go a long way to help relieve fatigue and stress.

Spearmint is also very high in minerals like potassium, manganese, calcium, and iron.

Spearmint is also rich in many antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin, beta-carotene, vitamin C, folates, vitamin B-6, thiamin, and riboflavin.
