Spearmint tea may help to control excessive hair growth in women, say Turkish researchers.
Hirsutism is caused by a serious illness but excess hair growth in women can cause distress or embarrassment. Hirsutism is actually treated with drugs to reduce the levels of androgent or male hormones in the body.There are chances of resulting of any underlying medical disorder due to Hirsutism.
Drinking the tea twice a day, reduced levels of male sex hormones, which can cause excessive hair growth (hirsutism) on the stomach, breasts and face. For this spearmint could be a good natural alternative therapy for women who have mild symptoms.
All women produce small amounts of the male sex (or androgen) hormones, which includes testosterone, but it is the over production of the hormones that leads to excessive hair growth.
According to the researchers, extracts of spearmint plant (Mentha spicata Labiatae) had been reported to reduce libido in men in a town called Isparta in southwest Turkey, possibly due to reduced androgen hormone levels.
