Patient :Hi so I heard that drinking spearmint and peppermint tea will lower testosterone. I'm a small guy trying to gain mass and the last thing I want is my testosterone levels lowered yet I love mint tea. Will one or two cups a day of it harm me?
Thank you for writing to us.
Spearmint and peppermint tea have anti-androgen effects. These can cause a decrease androgens and cause feminization of the person.
I recommend that you stop drinking this tea except to a very low limit. It is not worth the possible risk of feminization.
I hope this helps you.
