6 Benefits of Rooibos Tea (Plus How to Pronounce it)
Today we’re sharing a few benefits of Rooibos Tea. Wondering how to pronounce rooibos so you sound like you know what you’re talking about? Smarty pants fact: it’s pronounced ‘roy-boss.’
6 Benefits of Rooibos Tea
It’s Caffeine Free
First off, one of the biggest benefits of Rooibos is that it’s rich in flavor and contains no caffeine. This means no jitters that you get with coffee, black tea and even green tea.
It’s High in Antioxidants
Here is where our ingredient really starts to shine, in its ability to deliver antioxidants. The human body can contain molecules called free radicals. These can put the person into a state of oxidative stress. Chronic oxidative stress is linked to cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Fortunately antioxidants can help to protect cells from free radical damage, potentially fending off a number of serious health issues. In short, rooibos can help the body build its defense system.
It Can Support Heart Health
Rooibos has been linked to heart health. It can support healthy blood pressure and decrease LDL cholesterol (the bad type) while supporting a increase in HDL cholesterol (the good type).
It Can Protect Your Skin
This powerful herb can also support healthy skin. Rooibos can protect skin cells against damage as you age and might even prevent wrinkles (no promises 😉) with its antioxidant properties.
It Can Aid in Digestion
Healthy digestion is necessary and food can make a huge difference in how well our digestive system functions. Our bodies need healthy, nutritious food to promote gut health. Since rooibos is anti-inflammatory, it promotes gut health and keeps the GI track healthy.
It’s a Source of Energy
Even without caffeine, this tea can provide energy without disturbing any hormonal balance. Drinking a cup 30 minutes before you’re active can help lower stress levels and provide mental clarity for a good workout session, power walk—whatever the day holds.
