Functional rooibos wellness products to support health goals
Every New Year tempts us with new resolutions but the best thing we can do for ourselves to achieve any goal, is to establish good health habits. We firmly believe that our rooibos wellness range is an excellent vehicle to help you reach your health goals, improve your general wellbeing and address health specific issues/goals as identified below. We have specially formulated rooibos tea blends to enhance and restore wellness in each situation.
Since the first COVID-19 lockdown life has taken on an overwhelming tempo for most of us, making it difficult to focus and maintain our calm under all the pressure. Hydration remains one of the most neglected keys to good health. Instead of constant cups of dehydrating coffee, naturally calming Rooibos Espresso provides a hydrating, caffeine free alternative. Focus with turmeric adds significant improvement to memory and attention as curcumin boosts levels of the brain hormone BDNF, which increases the growth of new neurons. Restore contains ginseng which is said to enhance mental alertness and superfood moringa which is full of antioxidants, vitamins and other nutrients strengthening the immune system.
Rooibos is caffeine and kilojoule free, high in antioxidants and mineral content. These antioxidants bind with free radicals to lower oxidative stress, combatting cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart diseases.
Some stress is good and a healthy push to perform, but ongoing stress suppresses the immune system and increases risk of several diseases, including heart disease and cancer. Our go-to relaxing combination of rooibos and camomile (an ancient remedy for relieving common nervous system ailments such as insomnia, anxiety and panic attacks) in our Relax and Orange Camomile are essentials in any household. Recently launched Calm with CBD and passionflower has proved hugely popular. The perfect tea to help you unwind, destress and cope with a demanding lifestyle.
Boost your immune system with functional rooibos tea products developed to help defend your body against cold and flu. Our Revive and Boost teas contain Vitamin C which aids many body functions including formation of collagen, absorption of iron, proper functioning of the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones and teeth. Our unique Rooibos Powders are packed with antioxidants – more so than regular rooibos teas – PLUS they add a healthy dose of collagen for healthy hair, skin and nails. Our classic Earl Grey rooibos blend is now also available in unfermented Green Earl Grey which is higher in antioxidants and a great immune boost.
Poor digestion, stress, weight- and health issues can drain your energy. Prevent energy slumps by keeping your body hydrated, functioning optimally and energised with Energise, a rooibos, berry blend with guarana, hoodia and buchu, the perfect morning tea for a natural shot of goodness. Guarana (contains caffeine) is known to assist metabolism and reduce mental and physical fatigue. Buchu relieves water retention and hoodia helps suppress appetite. Both Restore and Revive boost alertness while the ginger and chilli combination stimulate circulation.
Toxins in the body cause sluggishness, headaches and chronic disease. A good detox cleanse therefore does wonders for the mind and the body. Our popular Teatox combo does just that: Energises in the morning and at the same time suppresses appetite, and at night Cleanse with senna flushes out the build-up of toxins that occurs naturally. Senna is known to have a mild natural laxative effect and together with ginger and mint, reduce bloating, while green rooibos contains abundant natural antioxidants. An ideal combo to help ease you out of those times of overindulgence too.
Delight is detoxing blend of rooibos, honeybush, hoodia and buchu. Kalahari Bushmen have been eating hoodia stems for centuries to suppress their appetite while hunting, while honeybush and rooibos have been used by traditional tribes for cleansing the digestive system.
Busyness often leads to a lack of self-care. We simply perform better when we practise good self-care, so prioritise self-care this year with teas that are made for relaxing, restoring moments and rooibos powders packed with antioxidants PLUS collagen for stronger hair, skin and nails!
Draw a bath, grab a book to read or simply sit and watch the sun rise. Relax with a calming cup of Orange Camomile or Floral Berry, a beautiful, fruity blend containing blue cornflowers, hibiscus, and rose petals that not only boosts your immune system but is good for your skin too.
Engaging in a self-care routine has been clinically proven to reduce or eliminate anxiety and depression, reduce stress, improve concentration, minimize frustration and anger, increase happiness and improve energy.
