If you’re looking for a caffeine-free tea you can sip all day long, Rooibos Tea should be your go-to drink. Rooibos Tea comes from the Asphalathus linearis herb native to South Africa. When fermented it becomes red in color and has a naturally sweeter and more robust taste than most teas.
Rooibos Tea is believed to have 50% more antioxidants than green tea and black tea. Specifically, it has phenolic compounds including aspalathin and nothofagin that have incredible health benefits. Rooibos Tea is also rich in body-craving minerals such as iron, copper, potassium, zinc, calcium, manganese, and alpha hydroxy acid. Additionally, this amazing tea contains bioflavanoids and Quercetin, two rare nutrients that support full body health.
With an abundance of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, Rooibos Tea offers a wealth of health benefits. All healthy diets should contain a range of antioxidant-rich foods. Antioxidants combat free radical damage that alters cellular DNA and can lead to many diseases. With protective antioxidants, cell damage can be minimized, reduced and reversed to elevate the immune system and keep the body running properly. Also, each of the highly concentrated minerals in Rooibos Tea sustains healthy cells, organs and blood, as well as increases the absorption of other minerals to maximize the nutritional content of the tea.
Rooibos Tea is widely known to help blood flow, regulate blood pressure and support heart health. Polyphenol antioxidants along with Quercetin found in Rooibos Tea help reduce blood pressure and calm hypertensive conditions that can lead to cardiovascular problems. Additionally, Rooibos Tea aids in lowering harmful LDL cholesterol while raising helpful HDL cholesterol to ensure better blood flow through arteries. This critical balance of cholesterol helps protect against atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke.
Along with cholesterol, Rooibos Tea helps balance blood glucose levels. Again it is the antioxidants in Rooibos Tea that keep blood sugar levels in check to prevent type 2 diabetes or to help manage symptoms for those who already have diabetes. This phenomenal tea also improves insulin resistance and encourages the natural secretion of insulin from the pancreas. Diabetes is a precursor to many other life-threatening health conditions so prevention and management of symptoms are extremely important for long term health.
Bones, joints, teeth and skin all benefit from the unprecedented nutrients of Rooibos Tea. Calcium supports strong bones and teeth and the combination of minerals in Rooibos Tea help repair joints and bones to protect against osteoporosis and arthritis. Fluoride is a natural ingredient of Rooibos Tea, which keeps teeth strong and cavity-free. Rooibos Tea helps reduce the signs of aging with powerful age-defying nutrients such as zinc, alpha hydroxy acid and many other antioxidants. These nourishing all-natural elements help reduce blemishes and skin irritation while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
Last but not least, Rooibos Tea is terrific for the digestive tract. As a natural antispasmodic, drinking this rich red tea can neutralize an over-active gastrointestinal system to prevent and relieve diarrhea, constipation and other digestive problems. Quercetin, potassium and calcium contribute to Rooibos Tea’s ability to calm indigestion and ease intestinal distress.
