Anti-Cancer Properties of Mint

October 24, 2012

A study was performed by Nedel et al to assess the antiproliferative effect in vitro of a Mint species (Mentha spicata associated with Mentha rotundifolia) against the human breast adenocarcinoma, human mouth epidermal carcinoma, and embryonic fibroblast cell lines.


Results demonstrated that mint extracts had antiproliferative activity against tumor cell lines. The data suggest that the Mentha species studied present an antineoplastic activity (inhibiting or preventing development of neoplasms – tumors; any new and abnormal growth, specifically one in which cell multiplication is uncontrolled and progressive).

Mint is a key ingredient of CALM&RELAX, SLIM&FIT, UP&GO and YOUNG&FUN.
