Rooibos tea has some fabulous benefits
Do you drink rooibos tea regularly and are you beginning to enjoy this delicious beverage? Well if you do, then you will be glad to know that this drink has many amazing health benefits. Here are some of them:
Rooibos tea is rich in antioxidants which not only play a role in helping to prevent heart related conditions, but also give our immune system a boost.
Improves digestive tract health
Rooibos tea is known to contain agents that assist in relieving stomach cramps as well as abdominal pain. Furthermore, it also helps to aid digestion and is sometimes used as a natural remedy for irritable bowel syndrome.
Helps to prevent diabetes
According to Vegkitchen.com, ‘Rooibos tea contains aspalathin, which has a hypoglycaemic effect on the body. Aspalathin is a rare type of antioxidant that helps balance blood sugar and improves insulin resistance in the body. It may also promote glucose absorption in the muscles. These effects may help prevent drinkers from developing type-2 diabetes. This is because the nutrient prevents the spikes in blood sugar that may cause type-2 diabetes. Those with a family history of diabetes may especially benefit from drinking this type of tea’.
Help relieve hypertension (more commonly known as high blood pressure) by including rooibos tea into your diet.
Supports a healthy head of hair
Rooibos tea is an excellent source of minerals such as copper, potassium, zinc as well as calcium – all of which are necessary for hair growth. These minerals may help to increase hair growth and also strengthen the hair fibres, thus enabling hair to grow healthy and strong.
