Rooibos tea has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and muscle relaxant properties which are vital to calm down allergies and keep the body healthy. It has been proved useful in the treatment of eczema, bronchitis and also asthma. Rooibos is rich in antioxidants that protect the skin from harmful allergies and skin issues.
Rooibos tea contains a unique powerful antioxidant called Aspalathin. Antioxidants fight free radicals in the body that are natural by-products of oxidation and which weaken the body’s natural defences.
The best known health benefit of rooibos tea (pronounced ‘roy boss’) is that it is naturally caffeine-free. Traditional black or green tea is made from the camelia sinensis plant which contains caffeine. However, Rooibos comes from the aspalathus linearis shrub, part of the pea and bean family, and has absolutely no caffeine in its genetic make-up. This means that unlike decaffeinated black tea, it does not have to undergo any chemical processing to have caffeine removed. Because rooibos has a full and rich taste, it can take milk, and therefore it makes a delicious alternative to black tea for those trying to reduce their caffeine intake.
