Mint Water - the Science Behind the Tradition !
Khawla S.H. Al-Haddad , Rasha A.S. Al-Qassemi and R.K. Robinson

Abstract:
When cultures of three common pathogens, namely Salmonella infantis, Salmonella hadar and Pseudomonas aeruginosa were added individually to a commercial sample of Mint Water at levels of ~ 500 colony-forming units ml-1, no viable cells could be detected after 10 minutes exposure. It is suggested that D-carvone is the active ingredient and that there is a sound scientific basis for the use of this traditional Middle Eastern remedy for bacterial infections.
