On Nutrition: Peppermint 101 | Food & Drink



Like many herbal products, research on peppermint’s medicinal effects is scant.

I like traditions. So I admit being somewhat bothered when I hear Christmas carols on the radio before my turkey dinner is digested. And why do they call the day after Thanksgiving “Black Friday” when I’m still giving thanks for leftovers?

That said, I do love the holiday season. And as soon as the turkey soup is made and we’ve gobbled up the last of the dressing and cranberry sauce, I’m ready to transition from everything orange and pumpkin to all things red, green … and peppermint.
