Rooibos pronounced as Roy - Boss is actually a red bush, native to South Africa’s cape of good hope. Apart from being delicious and fancy, our Rooibos Teas provide a plethora of health benefits. Here, are some reasons why Rooibos should be a part of our lifestyle where we look for quick fixes to long-term problems.
1. Caffeine - Free Tea
The biggest specialty of Rooibos is that it has zero amount of caffeine. Too much caffeine can give jitters, worsen anxiety, cause sleeplessness among many of its ill effects.
Because Rooibos is caffeine-free, it can be consumed by pregnant women, children, and also by people who are sensitive to caffeine. It is an excellent alternative to even soft drinks if you’re looking forward to avoiding caffeine altogether.
But can Rooibos be really confined to that benefit alone? We say No. There’s a lot you don’t know about our Rooibos tea and tea blends. Read on to know!
2. Amplifies antioxidants in the body
Rooibos tea contains several antioxidants, with the Green Rooibos containing higher levels than the Red Rooibos. Some of the most notable antioxidants in the tea are quercetin and aspalathin.
Antioxidants are important for human health because they stop free radicals from damaging cells in the body. They also flush out toxins from your body, leaving your system clean.
Rooibos tea has an antioxidant called glutathione, which helps regulate metabolism in the body and is shown to protect the body from inflammation and pathogens. The high antioxidant levels in Rooibos tea could support healthy sperm and a higher sperm count.
3. Blood Pressure and Cholesterol
Rooibos tea is known as a bronchodilator, which not only relieves respiratory conditions but generally reduces high blood pressure, which can cause dangerous cardiovascular diseases.
Hypertension is treatable through medication, diet, and lifestyle changes. Chronic elevation of blood pressure is a risk factor for many diseases and can lead to a decreased life expectancy. Rooibos tea is a natural remedy known for decreasing blood pressure that may be a life threat.
There is more promising evidence that rooibos tea can improve cholesterol levels. In a study in 40 overweight adults at high risk of heart disease, six cups of rooibos tea daily for six weeks decreased “bad” LDL cholesterol while boosting “good” HDL cholesterol
4. Healthy skin
It can keep your skin healthy and has healing and anti-aging properties. Rooibos is rich in alpha hydroxy and zinc which are both important nutrients for healthy skin. Drinking and/or applying rooibos tea to your skin will improve your skin health in the most natural way.
Rooibos is enriched with an excellent antioxidant known as superoxide dismutase. These antioxidants reduce wrinkles and boost the growth of healthy skin cells.
Rooibos has high levels of flavonoid and it helps in preventing skin disorders like eczema and acne and also relieves allergies.
5. Increased hair growth and reduced gray hair
Rooibos is enriched with minerals like zinc, calcium, copper, and potassium that not only promote hair growth while strengthening hair roots. Regular consumption may increase hair growth.
Increasing stress and pollution leads to the graying of hair and it is no longer a symptom of aging. The high levels of copper present in rooibos extract help prevent premature graying of hair.
All these benefits of Rooibos not only boosts your immune system, fighting the good fight to keep you healthy and happy at all times but also cares for your skin and hair health. It is so much more than just tea. Your magic potion is just one step away!
