Healthy lifestyle

With no additives, preservatives or colourants, rooibos tea is the natural choice for your healthy lifestyle. Rooibos tea is rich in anti-oxidants which combat the negative effect of free radicals. It is loaded with health boosting polyphenols and contains aspalathin which is a powerful anti-oxidant unique to rooibos. Unlike black and green teas, rooibos is naturally caffeine free and has been known to have a soothing effect on the central nervous system. Being caffeine free makes it also highly suitable for children, infants and breast-feeding mothers.

Rooibos has also been known to help manage allergies, sooth skin irritation and boost the immune system. It acts as an anti-spasmodic and aids digestion thereby relieving colic and stomach cramps in babies.

Rooibos tea is a virtually kilojoule free drink and is therefore the perfect companion for a kilojoule restricted diet. Being low in tannin (thus less bitter than other teas), it can be enjoyed with no milk or sugar. The low tannin content also ensures that iron absorption in the body is not hindered. Rooibos contains various  minerals important for metabolic function and is a excellent replenishing drink after a hard workout.
