Product  :  ROOIBOS TEA
Capacity  : 50g (20 Packs x 2.5g)
Origin  :  South Africa
Efficacy : As far back as 1830 botanists made sketches of the Rooibos plant and published their work. Since then scientists around the world have published their Rooibos research findings in a wide variety of leading scientific journals. In 2008 Professor Lizette Joubert of the Agricultural Research Council and Professor Wentzel Gelderblom of the Medical Research Council, along with two more collaborators, published an overview of existing knowledge about the history, cultivation, traditional uses, composition and biological activity of Rooibos and other South African herbal teas. Their review article was published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology.


  • Rooibos contains a complex mix of many flavonoids (compounds widely found in plants that are known to have health benefits).
  • Its composition is unique, because it contains aspalathin – to date only isolated from Aspalathus linearis (the botanical name for Rooibos).
  • Aspalathin is the major flavonoid of unfermented Rooibos. It decreases during fermentation, but is still a major flavonoid constituent of fermented Rooibos (the tea with the characteristic red-brown colour and flavour).
  • Aspalathin is important, not only because it is a novel compound, but also because it is the most active antioxidant in Rooibos in many cases.
  • Rooibos also contains the rare flavonoid glucoside nothofagin.
  • Other major phenolic compounds are orientin and iso-orientin, with smaller amounts of vitexin and isovitexin and many more compounds.
  • Rooibos is naturally caffeine free. It is considered a low tannin beverage.
Quoted from Apple News Mobile reported on March 31, 2019 :
Effect 1: Help Sleep : South Africans drink it basically in the morning and evening, whether men, women and children, even pregnant women and patients can drink with peace of mind. Because South African National Treasure Tea differs from ordinary green tea and black tea in that it does not contain caffeine and oxalic acid, and contains a large amount of active flavonoids (vitamin P), which helps to fall asleep, and the longer the brewing time, the better it helps sleeping.

Efficacy 3: Promote Gastrointestinal Digestion : South African National Treasure Tea can relieve symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea and help to relieve stomach upset and fight colitis. In 1968, Dr. Annique Theron of South Africa discovered that Rooibos has therapeutic and anti-allergic properties, helped many children in South Africa who are suffering from allergic colons, and began to study the other effects of Rooibos plants. Rooibos was therefore highly valued and promoted by the South African government. Processing into tea leaves spread all over the world.

Efficacy 7: Promoting heart health and preventing diabetes : According to foreign media, drinking Rooibos Tea can help maintain heart health while lowering blood pressure and cholesterol and reducing the risk of heart disease. “
“According to “News 24” (South African News), Rooibos tea contains flavonoids, such as quercetin, which has an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitory effect. 
” According to the SARC, the main heart-healthy substances in rooibos may be attributed to the polyphenolic antioxidants in this herbal tea. Rooibos tea reportedly contains flavones and flavonols such as quercetin that exhibits an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitory action.  According to the SARC, these help to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease by inhibiting the migration of smooth muscle cells inside the arteries, a key cause of the narrowing or hardening of the arteries that may lead to a heart attack.
These phytochemicals help to lower blood pressure and may relieve vasoconstriction.  The public is encouraged to eat more healthily, reduce alcohol consumption and stop smoking to improve heart health and overall well-being.”
