Very often you can hear that mint has a detrimental effect on potency. Men are afraid of peppermints, tea with mint, menthol cigarettes, etc. Immediately make a reservation: even if the mint has a negative effect on the potency, then one or a few mint chewing gums or cups of tea with mint will not affect the potency in any way. And about menthol cigarettes can not speak, because smoking in itself reduces the potency.
Scientists who conducted the research did not reveal any substances affecting potency in mint. But the opinion that mint negatively affects the potency has some basis. The fact is that mint has a calming effect on the entire body, so the body tends not to disturb the state of rest, and does not allow psychological and physical arousal. In addition, some varieties of mint have a very pronounced calming effect.
There may also be a factor of self-suggestion, i.e. having drunk, for example, tea with mint, the man thinks that his potency will decrease, which happens later.
So, if mint affects the potency , then only natural mint, which is used in a constant mode. All substitutes such as mint chewing gum or mint tea can not be afraid.
