How can spearmint tea help improve PCOS symptoms?

If you are looking to manage and improve your #Pcos symptoms try swapping your daily coffee for spearmint tea 🌿 PCOS is driven by high androgen levels (that’s the group of ‘male’ hormones e.g testosterone) and having daily spearmint herbal tea can reduce those levels - this can mean a reduction in presenting PCOS symptoms 🙌🏻⁣

👩🏼‍⚕️ Research has confirmed that spearmint tea has antiandrogen properties and can significantly decrease testosterone level in women with PCOS. One study concluded that drinking 2-3 cups of spearmint tea daily reduced free and total testosterone levels over a 30 day period ❤️ Pretty amazing stuff.⁣

☕️ Caffeine increases cortisol secretion 👎🏻 Drinking coffee during times of stress may contribute to anxiety, the duration and magnitude of high blood pressure and stress endocrine responses. While coffee can definitely have its place in a healthy lifestyle (due to its mood boosting and antioxidant properties) when we are trying to reverse PCOS symptoms, making the caffeine switch can be beneficial – especially if it’s to spearmint tea 🫖

Removing or reducing caffeine from the diet can also support better sleep (more so, depending on your genetics)! Happy sleep 👉🏻 happy hormones. Make mine a mint tea please 💁🏼‍♀️⁣

Save & share with any PCOS pals 🙌🏻
