Mint is an ancient medicinal plant, found in Egyptian tombs dating back many millennia. Dioscorides describes mint as "friendly to the stomach" and Pliny writes: "... extremely effective in body aches and biliary diseases ... it soothes stomach pain and expels intestinal parasites". Matthiolus and Tabernaemontanus report the digestive and antispasmodic action of mint, as well as the action of enhancing bile secretion. In these old traditions, however, it is not always clear whether it is really peppermint or other related species of mint.
Scientifically proven applications:
Committee E and ESCOP recommend the application of mint leaves for the symptomatic treatment of indigestion, flatulence and inflammation of the gastric mucosa. Committee E further supports the use of gallbladder and biliary tract spasms. The reported applications are based on experience and have not been documented for mint leaves through clinical trials.
Committee E only supports the internal intake of lemon balm in sleep-induced nervous disorders and functional intestinal disturbances. For sleep disorders there are clinical studies only in combination with valerian or other medicinal plants.
The following indications were evaluated positively by ESCOP and the E Committee for Mint Oil: internal application for the symptomatic treatment of digestive disorders and irritable bowel syndrome, as well as for the symptomatic treatment of coughs and colds. The external application is recommended by ESCOP for coughs and colds, for the symptomatic treatment of rheumatic discomfort, headache from high blood pressure, in case of itching, urticaria and pain if there is sensitive skin. Committee E supports external use in myalgias and neuropathies.
The antispasmodic and antibacterial action of mint oil and mint leaf extract has been proven experimentally. An experiment with rats and dogs showed an increase in bile production from mint oil and menthol.
