Rooibos (Afrikaans for red bush) dates back to the 17th century and carries a rich history. It is well known for soothing tummies and is used to help with food allergies and a good night’s sleep. The widespread anecdotal evidence of the health benefits and the presence of a blend of antioxidants in the product, whet the research appetites of several scientists in South Africa and around the world. The active ingredients in Rooibos Herbal Tea are polyphenolic compounds which provide antioxidants and potential health benefits. It is thought that polyphenols can improve or help treat digestion issues, allergies, weight management, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular diseases.
