The South African Red Bush Tea
Rooibos tea (pronounced ROY-BOSS) is only grown in Cederburg, a small mountainous area in the region of the Western Cape Province of South Africa. This sweet, nutty, and caffeine free brew gives you a delicious dose of antioxidants and acts as your body's own natural detoxifier.
For centuries, South Africans have used this herb for medicinal purposes.
Scientific research shows that:
- Rooibos contains several antioxidants, which are important for human health because they stop free radicals from damaging cells in the body. (Leonard, 2018)
- In a 2011 study, 40 people at risk for cardiovascular disease saw decreased levels of bad cholesterol after drinking rooibos tea for six weeks. (Leonard, 2018)
- Rooibos can be applied topically to reduce wrinkles, improving the appearance of your skin! (Leonard, 2018)
