aspalathin. Vitamin C, magnesium, manganese, and calcium are some of the other
beneficial nutrients found in rooibos. Here are some of the conditions that rooibos
has been shown to alleviate or assist with.

Digestive Problems

South Africans have long used rooibos tea to provide relief from and assist with the
treatment of various digestive problems. Some of these problems that rooibos tea
has been commonly used to treat include heartburn, nausea, indigestion, and
stomach ulcers.

Cancer Prevention

Many health experts agree that rooibos does act as an anticarcinogen to a number
of different types of cancer cells. Studies have shown that the flavonoids contained in
rooibos have chemopreventive and antimutagenic properties which have been shown
to significantly reduce the potential onset of cancer.

Anti-Aging

It is fairly well-known that antioxidants play a significant role in protecting the body
from the damage free radicals can cause. Since rooibos is so rich in antioxidants, it
naturally helps to reduce the damaging effect aging has on the cells in our bodies. As
a result, rooibos has the ability to help slow the aging process down.

Skin Conditions

Because of the alpha-hydroxy acid found in rooibos, it can be used externally to
promote healthy skin and alleviate skin problems. It has been found effective in
treating and providing relief from eczema, sunburn, rashes, and itches. Drinking the
tea has also been shown to alleviate allergies and asthma.

These are just a few of the conditions rooibos tea has been used to treat. Stress,
heart disease, headaches, and insomnia are a few more. Rooibos tea can be served
as an iced tea or a hot beverage. While sugar and milk are commonly added, many
people will find the tea to be naturally smooth and lacking the bitterness that many
black and green teas have. Either way, rooibos tea is a great choice for any
health-conscious tea lover.
