River Mint

$8.99$39.50

River Mint (Mentha australis) is a native herb that grows in most states of Australia. It contains high levels of phenolic compounds and therefore has great antioxidant properties. It has a strong spearminty flavour. It was and is still used traditionally by First Nations Peoples for treating cold and flu symptoms.

The phenolic compounds in River Mint can scavenge free radicals in the body. (As we know, free radicals can lead to oxidative stress diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease.) Traditionally it was used to treat headaches and colds. Recent research has shown that the phenolic compounds in River Mint have anti-inflammatory, anti-tumour, and antibacterial effects and are used widely in medications for stomach conditions.

River Mint is so refreshing and powerfully spearminty that you do not need much to flavour your smoothie, juice or water and to add extra antioxidants! You can also use it in place of the common non-native mint in mint jellies, sauces, gravies and salads. We recommend using only half a teaspoon at first and then add more, depending on how minty you like your food and drink!
