So the other day I was looking for something online and this article about controlling body hair growth with peppermint popped up. I decided to do more research on the subject. After confirming that the article was not a lie (I found other sites saying the same thing), I was like, I have to do a blog post on this. So here it is!
Some woman have this disease called hirsutism which is a disease that causes excessive body and facial hair growth. The research was conducted by Turkish researchers. Dr. Mehmet Numan Tamer and colleagues from Suleyman Demirel University in Isparta reported that the patients who drank 2 cups of peppermint tea each morning had the symptoms of the disease controlled with in 2 weeks!
This method is great for men and women who hate facial and body hair. This natural method may help you control it.

Although, scientists haven't scientifically proven this to be effective, the effects of peppermint in the woman with hirsutism can be clearly seen. How the peppermint works is it will bind with testosterone (or androgens) receptors in the body making them useless. (Similar to anti-androgens) Your body will still produce the same amount of testosterone as before, but since the receptors will no longer respond to them.
Peppermint tea can help you...
- Control the testosterone receptors
- Control excess body/facial hair
- Control oily skin (zits on your face and stuff)
- Help you loose weight
- Improve the health of your skin!
Even if it doesn't work for you, it's good to know there will not be side effects because it is all natural. :) I recommend you to try this before you try some kind of prescription drug. Natural is always better. Remember, 2-5 cups of peppermint tea a day may help! Oh yeah.
