Staying Balanced with Spearmint

Spearmint is one of my favorite herbs to use in the kitchen. It adds a fresh punch to my morning smoothies and even provides some really amazing hormone balancing effects.

Many women with PCOS struggle with excess androgen levels – or high levels of testosterone. While some testosterone is necessary to maintain balance, an excess amount can cause our bodies to respond in ways such as acne, hair loss, excess weight gain and missing periods. I know that the effects of excess testosterone can leave us feeling frustrated and confused, but now more than ever we can turn to natural remedies to help reduce some of these symptoms. Studies have found that consuming 2-3 cups of spearmint tea per day can naturally reduce levels of free testosterone in the body. It can also reduce excess body hair, clear up acne and aid in digestion.

Spearmint offers a lot more than just being an awesome choice for women with PCOS. It contains vitamins like A, C and B-complex as well as magnesium, iron, beta carotene and calcium. Spearmint can help promote blood circulation and improve metabolism, which makes this powerful plant an amazing choice for detoxifying and weight loss. Spearmint also contains antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties making it a great choice as a disinfectant internally, as well as externally.

While I do enjoy spearmint tea daily, there are other options available for you that provide the same benefits. Spearmint supplements and essential oils can be purchased alternatively to fresh herbs. Essential oils can be diffused, added to homemade household cleaning products, or mixed into oil to be used as a moisturizer. Here are a few ways you can incorporate spearmint into your daily routine:

  • Enjoy 2-3 cups of spearmint tea daily for at least 30 days and see what you notice!
  • Add a few drops of spearmint essential oil to 1 Tbsp of coconut oil for a moisturizer.
  • Add freshly chopped spearmint to your smoothie or savory meals for added flavor and nutrients.
  • Spearmint can be purchased in pill form as well as dried, which can be great options if fresh is not regularly available.

With spearmint having so many amazing effects for women struggling with PCOS, how will you incorporate it into your daily routine?
