This article is part of a collection of articles on the health benefits of popular foods.
Possible health benefits
Peppermint is a popular traditional remedy for a number of conditions.
It is believed to have calming effects.
It is used to treat flatulence, menstrual pains, diarrhea, nausea, depression-related anxiety, muscle and nerve pain, the common cold, indigestion, and IBS.
Peppermint calms the stomach muscles and improves the flow of bile, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMM). This makes it suitable for people who have indigestion.
However, it should not be used by people with gastroesophageal reflex disease (GERD), which has different causes.
Irritable bowel syndrome
Scientific studies have suggested that peppermint, in various forms, can help treat the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
A 2008 study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) concluded that peppermint was helpful as an antispasmodic in treating IBS.
Antispasmodic properties are those that reduce the intensity and frequency of spasms or involuntary movement.
Some research has indicated that peppermint may help reduce pain related to IBS.
