Rooibos Benefits
  • Rooibos tea promotes healthy blood sugar levels and supports the body in using glucose properly.

  • Because Rooibos tea is rich with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, it encourages a healthy immune system.  
  • Rooibos tea may help ease a headache. Rooibos contains magnesium (a.k.a the 'relaxation' mineral), which helps to increase your brain's blood flow and may help protect against headaches and migraines.
