The health benefits of Mint or Peppermint will surprise you. If you workout or get stressed at work you can use the mint leaves for relief and use the leaves for a better workout. For all my fitness people you can feel better an get a better handle on your entire workout. If you work a lot it can help you too.

Here’s a way to improve your work and workouts, according to NaturalLivingIdeas.com:

Whether you’re looking to supercharge your time at the gym, or simply become more alert in the workplace, then start utilizing the powers of your peppermint plant. Research from the Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia found that athletes who sniffed peppermint during exercise ran faster, had greater grip strength and could do more push-ups than those who did not. Smelling mint can help in everyday life too – it can improve clerical work, including typing accuracy and speeds, as well as helping you stay more alert while driving. It’s just another reason to bring a flask of homemade mint tea on your morning commute, or stash a vial of mint essential oil in your gym bag.
