The science of why Rooibos is good for you

Below are summaries of research results on the health benefits of Rooibos:

Rooibos regulates immune function
• Rooibos can both stimulate and suppress the immune response, depending on how it is used. It therefore has the potential to treat several immune-related conditions, ranging from allergic skin conditions to bacterial infections (Journal of Immunoassay and Immunochemistry, 2010).

Rooibos calms stomach cramps
• Rooibos is effective in treating stomach cramps and diarrhoea thanks to the calming effect of the flavonoids on the digestive system (Basic Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology, 2006).

Rooibos may help you to stay younger for longer
• Rooibos protects testicular tissue against oxidative damage, while reducing lipid peroxidation (African Journal of Biotechnology, 2011).
• Rooibos shows promise as a therapy to prevent and treat Alzheimer's disease (Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics, 2010).
• Rooibos prolongs fertility and delays ageing in quail hens (British Poultry Science, 2008).
• Rooibos protects the central nervous system and slows down age-related degeneration in the brains of rats (Neuroscience Letters, 1995).
