Description

Mint

Mint comes from the plant known as Mentha Spicata. This plant is perennial and its height oscillates around 30 cm. Its leaves emit an intense smell of mint and are dark green, the reverse side of the leaf is dark brown or burgundy. These buds are available all year, but especially in spring and summer. It leaves a slight chocolate flavor taste and its aroma is very intense. It is considered a fundamental ingredient in the kitchen.

Pairing

In the kitchen, mint is used in various ways: for desserts and pastries, to add flavor in sauces or in more elaborated dishes such as stews or roasts. It combines with both fish and meat and, of course, with sweets like chocolate.

Medicinal properties

The mint sprouts not only are useful to increase the flavors of our recipes but also have a multitude of beneficial properties for health. Among all the properties, we can highlight the following:

  • Improves bad breath: an essential ingredient in toothpastes due to the intense flavour and aroma they give off. In addition it combats the germs that produce the bad smells of the oral cavity.
  • Antioxidant: it delays the deterioration of the cells and therefore prevents aging, inflammations and diseases that degenerate our cardiovascular system.
  • Digestive: a great ally for our digestive system as it helps it to function correctly and also minimizes symptoms such as irritable bowel, inflammation at the gastric level, gas excess or in digestion.
  • The best expectorant: it works very well for congestion colds and other respiratory diseases. In addition, the freshness alleviates discomfort.
  • Against diabetes: lowers harmful lipids in the blood so it is perfect for preventing type II diabetes, the most common one.
  • Powerful painkillers: relieve muscle aches and headaches as the cold sensation makes inflammation decrease.
  • Relaxing: it is an effective remedy for stress, fatigue, anxiety and depression among others.
