Peppermint tea is a very popular traditional herbal drink known for its exquisite and fresh aroma. It is the perfect breakfast tea without the negative effects of caffeine. It is known as an effective regimen for digestive disorders, as well as for colds and flu. Peppermint tea is rich in phytonutrients such as beta-carotene, hesperetin, menthol, rutin and others. It is also full of vitamins and minerals.

Peppermint tea can be consumed after meals because it freshens the breath and enhances digestion. It is a great remedy for stomach aches as it soothes bloated stomachs, nausea and other digestive disorders. Peppermint tea enhances digestion by reducing spasms of the colon and intestinal tract and relaxes the stomach muscles.

The Challenge

Although caffeinated coffee or tea is often taken as a daily breakfast drink, many people are now aware of the detrimental effects of caffeine consumption. Drinking a cup of coffee or tea with meals could affect digestion and interfere with absorption of important nutrients. For example, caffeine inhibits calcium and Vitamin D absorption and at the same time increases urinary excretion of calcium, which may promote bone loss over time. 

Also, too much coffee or tea may cause digestive discomfort and irritate the stomach. Excessive caffeinated drinks in highly sensitive individuals make them prone to gastritis, heart burn, acid reflux and so on. Caffeine drinkers mn also suffer from insomnia or sleep deprivation due to an over-stimulated nervous system.
