My latest 1st was using fresh mint (bought a mint plant) in a Watermelon Waves Shake. Interesting subtle flavor.

So next step, had to explore, why would someone use mint other than for a flavor change. Being on a healthy weight program the excerpt below stuck out. But you will be amazed at all those little mint leaves can do.

“Mint could also play its own sweet role in weight loss, and the reason is tied with its much famed digestive properties. Mint stimulates digestive enzymes, which help facilitate better absorption of nutrients from food. When the body is able to assimilate and absorb nutrients properly, there is better metabolism. A faster metabolism aids weight loss.”
