carotene, hesperidin, flavonoids, betaine, triterpene compounds, ursolic and oleanolic acid.Peppermint is familiar because it is widely used as a flavoring in foods, beverages, and over-the-counter products. But this herb also is believed to possess healing elements for several illnesses when used properly. Most people have heard about the benefits of peppermint leaf tea for relief of an upset stomach. Peppermint's reputation is due in large part to its volatile oil compounds that relax the smooth muscles that line the digestive tract. When these muscle cells become overactive, they contribute to indigestion, dyspepsia, gallbladder disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. The herb is considered to have emetic, stimulant, and astringent qualities, and is used in diarrhoea and as an emmenagogue. The local anaesthetic action of Peppermint is exceptionally strong. It is also a powerful antiseptic.
