Tea Highlight: Why You Should Drink Rooibos Tea
Rooibos is a special tea that comes from a very specific area of the world. Rooibos is a caffeine free tea that comes from a shrub that can only be found in South Africa. The shrub is dried and oxidized to then be steeped in hot water and enjoyed. The locals of South Africa have been drinking rooibos tea for a very long time, and has gained more popularity in the Western world in recent decades. Rooibos is full of antioxidants, some sources stating over 50 times more than green tea.
Rooibos is praised for ridding your body of free radicals, easing digestion problems and even adding loads of benefits that promote healthy skin and hair. Because this auburn colored tea is caffeine free, it can be enjoyed at all hours of the day without affecting your sleep schedule. Rooibos is also is anti-inflammatory, which are known to reduce the risk of heart disease as well as adding a boost to your immune system.
One of the highest praised benefits of rooibos tea is the benefits for your skin and hair. Rooibos is a natural producer of both alpha hydroxy acid and zinc. If you've ever dealt with skin issues, including moderate to sever acne, rooibos might just be your savior. Both of these ingredients, alpha hydroxy acid and zinc, are commonly found in cosmetic and acne products, due to their proven track record of healing the skin. Both drinking the tea and applying it topically to the skin has been proven to create a clear and glowy complexion. Let rooibos make your skin glow!
