There are a number of different species of mints to which peppermint is related, and it’s believed that peppermint is a natural hybrid of watermint and spearmint. Historically, peppermint has been used medicinally as a general digestive aid, and for the symptomatic treatment of upper respiratory infections. The active constituents of peppermint are primarily menthol and menthone. Peppermint is an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin A. Peppermint is a very good source of magnesium, folate, dietary fiber, calcium, iron, and vitamin B2.
