Health Benefits

Antioxidants

Rooibos contains flavonoids that help fight inflammation and disease, and work to balance the immune defence system.

Digestive problems

Rooibos tea has antispasmodic properties that help digestion and ease stomach and abdominal cramps. It can also soothe the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and is an excellent herbal tea for constipation.

Colic in babies

Despite little scientific evidence, South African mothers regularly give colicky babies rooibos to soothe their tummies and calm them. The herbal tea is generally added to the baby’s milk feed, or given separately in a bottle.

Allergies

Rooibos tea may help ease symptoms of allergies.

Asthma

Rooibos tea helps dilate the vessels that carry air to the lungs. That’s good news if you suffer with asthma or regular bronchial disorders.

Diabetes

Aspalathin, the unique antioxidant in Rooibos, may make it a useful herbal tea for diabetes by helping sufferers to lower blood sugar levels.

Heart health

Research indicates that rooibos tea may lower blood pressure and reduce levels of the ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol.
