Rooibos Tea Health Benefits... This red tea is healthy and delicious!

Rooibos tea health benefits have been valued in South Africa for centuries.

Now, the reputation of this vibrantly colored, sweet-tasting, healing tea is growing in many other countries. Here are some of the reasons why.

  • Rooibos tea is rich in powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants are good things - not only do they slow the aging process, reverse the visible signs of aging (like wrinkles), and fight inflammation, but they can help to protect us from chronic disease, as well.
  • Rooibos tea benefits also include a healthy liver - this red tea promotes healthy liver functioning and may inhibit the development of fatty liver disease.
  • Rooibos is also popular for occasional sleeplessness. On your next sleepless night, make a soothing cup of Rooibos tea to calm and relax you and encourage sleep.

So many Rooibos tea health benefits... But are there any risks or side effects?

While Rooibos tea is such a fragrant, enjoyable tea, much has yet to be learned about the benefits of drinking Rooibos tea. Current research about Rooibos tea hasn't uncovered any side effects associated with Rooibos tea; even so, it's best to ask your healthcare provider about safe amounts of Rooibos tea for you, especially if you are taking prescription medications, have liver or kidney concerns, or are currently being treated for (or have a history of) cancer.

And check with your healthcare professional before giving Rooibos tea to children or infants or drinking it yourself if you are pregnant or nursing.

Rooibos tea is an herbal tea and, unlike teas from the Camellia sinensis tea plant, Rooibos tea is caffeine free and won't leave you with the caffeine 'blues' or any other possible caffeine side effects (insomnia, headaches, etc.). So, if you are sensitive to caffeine or are watching your caffeine intake, Rooibos may be a good choice for you!
