Spearmint Tea has been shown to ease the pain of arthritis. According to a leading newspaper, researchers are prescribing two cups of tea a day for four months for people diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee.

The tea in the trial which is still in undergoing clinical trials is extra strength, with high levels of rosmarinic acid which is an antioxidant which has been shown to have anti-inflamatory effects.

Olding Chiropractic wrote “A report of how spearmint teas influenced knee osteoarthritis discovered that a commercial spearmint tea bettered stiffness and physical disability while a spearmint tea brewed from a high-rosmarinic acid (high-rosA) variety significantly reduced pain“.
