Peppermint Tea Improves Memory

Peppermint Tea

Drinking peppermint tea may significantly help improve your long term memory, working memory and alertness, a new study has claimed. 180 participants took part in the research at the Northumbria University in the UK and were randomly told to drink peppermint tea, chamomile tea or hot water.

Before they consumed their drink they completed questionnaires relating to their mood. After A-20 minute rest, the participants completed tests that assessed their memory and a range of other cognitive functions.

Chamomile tea significantly slowed memory compared to both peppermint and hot water. Analysis of the results showed that peppermint tea significantly improved long term memory, working memory and alertness.
