Many people know nothing about fresh mint but its name and synthetic flavor in chewing gum. It is really rare to find anyone who uses fresh mint in cooking or even know what it looks like. Even those who add it to their recipes use dried mint leaves. Here, you will learn all about the wonderful benefits of fresh mint.
1- Mint cures skin flaws and ailments, especially acne. You can use a wash made of boiling mint in water as a toner for your face to prevent pimples and zits. You could also include chopped mint leaves in any skin mask you make.
2- Did you know that mint enhances some of your brain’s cognitive functions? Such as memory and learning? It also makes you more perceptive and alert to your surroundings. You can either chew it raw or add it to drinks (again, fresh mint and mint flavoring additives are not the same).
3- If you are going through a lousy case of cold or flu, inhale mint scent and eat it. Also, an excellent treatment here would be using it in a vaporizer and inhaling the steam.
4- Cancer patients who suffer from the aftermath of chemotherapy such as vomiting and nausea are advised to use mint in food and drink recipes as it is very effective at treating these side effects.
6- Fresh mint is extremely rich in antioxidants. As a result, it prevents a long list of serious diseases, skin ailments, impaired metabolism and even cancer.
