In a recent study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, researchers looked at the effect of PEPPERMINT OIL on running performance. (Read Study Here) In the study they used .05ml of peppermint oil in a drink, each day for 10 days consecutively. They would test the participants before and after drinking for various indicators of cardiovascular performance.
Doug Dupont, from Health and Fitness News commented on this study in an article (read article here) for breakingmuscle.com. He clearly explained the results, stating “You might expect a boost, but the extent that peppermint consumption improved performance was considerable. The oil improved exercise performance, respiratory function, blood pressure, heart rate, and respiratory gas exchange. It also reduced resting blood pressure and heart rate. The amount of total work performed by the test subjects was increased by a whopping 51%, including an increase in the time to exhaustion of about 25%. So not only did the subjects go for a quarter longer than they did without the peppermint oil, their work rate per unit time was higher too. In other words, they went faster for longer.”
