a study that appeared in the February 2010 issue of Phytotherapy Research was recently published online suggesting that spearmint tea has the potential to reduce hirsutism, excessive hair growth, associated with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
The study entitled herbal tea Spearmint has important anti-androgen effects in polycystic ovary syndrome. A randomized controlled trial. was a trial of 30 days which also contained a control group.
While the trial showed that green tea cure hirsutism mint or even significantly reducing the symptom, it was found that “there was a clear and significant change in the levels of relevant hormones.”
In other words, the study suggests that spearmint tea has the potential to reduce hirsutism over time and suggests that conducted a long-term study.
was demonstrated and confirmed that spearmint has antiandrogen properties, the simple fact that this is not clearly translated into practice clinical is due to the relationship between hormones androgen and follicular growth and hair renewal time of the cells. In short, the duration of the study was not long enough. The original studies from Turkey were, in fact, only 5 days. The time required for hirsutism to resolve is significant and a future study much longer proposed as preliminary results are encouraging that spearmint has the potential to be used as a useful and natural treatment for hirsutism in PCOS.
Although not conclusive, the study shows great potential not only for spearmint tea with regard to this specific disease, but that natural methods continue to be researched and studied what with respect to this and other health-related problems.
