Rooibos Tea Kahvé Road – everyday health naturally
Rooibos Tea from Kahvé Road
As the year comes to an end, our thoughts start to move towards our New Year resolutions and how we’ll better ourselves in 2018.
Some of us have already decided that we’ll be removing beloved carbs from our diets, others have made more substantial commitments to exercising every day without fail, rain or shine.
But what if we told you that you could boost your health routine by simply drinking a cup of Rooibos tea every day?
8 Health Benefits of Rooibos Tea
The benefits of Rooibos came to light in the late 1960’s and have since been the focus of numerous health related studies. In this article, we’ve shortlisted 8 rather impressive benefits of this magical plant.
1. Rooibos offers antioxidant properties
Rooibos contains a unique blend of antioxidants, the most abundant of which is Aspalathin. Antioxidants offer several beneficial properties.
They have been proven to prevent free radicals from damaging cells and causing cancer or oxidising with cholesterol to clog blood vessels resulting in heart attacks and strokes.
Additionally, the antioxidants present in rooibos tea prevent the movement of free radicals in the body and combat oxidative stress – helping to prevent ageing.
2. Aids digestion
Red tea otherwise known as Rooibos is caffeine-free and free of tannins. Both caffeine and tannins are found in other teas and are known to cause digestive issues for some people.
Red tea is a storehouse of antispasmodic elements, aiding the prevention and treatment of diarrhoea and gastric issues. Additionally, it has no oxalic acid, making it suitable for those who are prone to developing kidney stones.
3. Packed with micro-nutrients
Rooibos tea is rich in several minerals such as: calcium, iron, zinc, copper and manganese – to name a few.
If you are suffering from hair loss, Rooibos is known to improve hair growth by strengthening the hair follicles and providing essential nutrients that your body needs for healthy hair.
4. Immune system booster
Rooibos has the power to protect your body against diseases while helping to build and strengthen your immunity, while making you stronger from within.
A study done in Japan indicated that the active compounds found in a water-soluble fraction of rooibos restored immune function in immune-suppressed rats.
These results hold significant potential for future research into the immune-boosting properties of rooibos which may hugely benefit people living with HIV/Aids.
5. Anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties
Rooibos is a natural anti-inflammatory and offers anti-bacterial properties, and is therefore great for healing wounds and pain relief.
It is rich in polyphenols, which helps to boost your immune system and thereby, boosting your overall health and your body’s ability to heal.
6. Improves sleep
Because Rooibos is caffeine-free, it is the perfect hot or cold drink for people who suffer from insomnia.
Caffeine is addictive and over-use can create havoc for your sleep cycle. Regularly consuming Rooibos helps to relax and calm tired nerves.
7. Increase bone strength
Rooibos contains both calcium and manganese, both of which are hugely beneficial to your bones.
Additionally, it encourages bone and joint development and in turn, assists with the prevention or treatment of arthritis.
8. Benefits your skin
Regularly consuming Rooibos will result in beautiful and radiant skin. The alpha hydroxy content found in Rooibos can reverse cell damage and rejuvenate ageing skin.
Furthermore, Rooibos is a rich source of bioflavonoids which improves blood circulation resulting in glowing skin.
