    Spearmint may reduce excess female hair

    Drinking two cups of spearmint tea a day could help women lose excessive
    body hair by lowering levels of sex hormones in their blood, scientists
    said yesterday.

    Women who drank tea leaves from the spearmint plant, Mentha spicata, for
    five consecutive days had reduced levels of a sex hormone believed to
    trigger hirsutism, a condition where thick, dark hairs sprout on the face,
    stomach and breasts.

    The disorder is linked to a hormonal imbalance and is common among women
    with polycystic ovary syndrome, which affects 5-10% of women of
    childbearing age. It is usually treated with drugs that block the hormones
    working, or the contraceptive pill, which cuts the available testosterone
    in the bloodstream.

    The study focused on 21 women aged from 18 to 40. Twelve had polycystic
    ovary syndrome. Blood tests revealed that after drinking the tea,
    testosterone was cut by 29%, while factors thought to impair hair growth
    were boosted.

    "Current therapies use either oral contraceptives to suppress androgen
    production, or medications such as spirolactone that prevent the body
    responding to androgen, but this study shows that spearmint could be a
    good natural alternative for women who have mild symptoms," said Mehmet
    Tamer, an endocrinologist at Suleyman Demirel University in Isparta,
    Turkey. The study appears in the journal Phytotherapy Research.

    The team decided to study the effects of spearmint after reports emerged
    of men experiencing reduced libidos after consuming the drink over long
    periods.

    "For many women with hirsutism, it is an exceptionally distressing
    problem," said Valerie Randall, an expert in hormones and hair growth at
    Bradford University. "The difficulty with natural remedies is knowing how
    much, if any, of the active ingredient is in a batch of leaves."
