Swap pep­per­mint for SPEARMINT

Drink­ing two cups of spearmint tea a day for a month can lower lev­els of testos­terone and re­duce the ex­cess hair growth of­ten as­so­ci­ated with poly­cys­tic ovary syn­drome. But that’s not the only ben­e­fit of this swap. “Spearmint also con­tains higher lev­els of an in­gre­di­ent called rose­marinic acid than pep­per­mint and this is shown to have an­tiox­i­dant, an­tivi­ral and anti-al­ler­gic ac­tions,” says Maslen.
