Spearmint is the least pungent and subtle among all species of the mint family. Although spearmint contains less menthol than peppermint, it still has a relaxing and cooling effect on the nerves and muscles. Like other varieties of mint, spearmint has been utilized for generations for its ability to ease mild upset stomachs, common cold symptoms, and gastrointestinal problems.*
The menthol component of spearmint produces a cooling effect by stimulating the nerves that sense cold. In addition, menthol inhibits nerves that react to pain stimuli. The anti-spasmodic properties of menthol help to relive coughs, abdominal and intestinal cramping, and hiccups.
Like its relative peppermint tea, spearmint tea can aid with mild indigestion, sinus congestion, and digestive ailments such as occasional nausea and flatulence, as stomach muscles become relaxed. Spearmint tea also promotes healthy digestion by helping to release bile and gastric juices.*
