DRINK ROOIBOS TEA FOR THE HEALTH OF IT
LOWER YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
Rooibos tea is known to relieve stress, nervous tension, and hypertensive conditions. Hypertension is more commonly known as high blood pressure and rooibos tea acts as a bronchodilator. It not only relieves respiratory conditions but also lowers blood pressure, resulting in the prevention of dangerous cardiovascular diseases like heart attacks and atherosclerosis.
HELP CONTROL DIABETES
The antioxidant Aspalathin found in rooibos tea can help balance blood sugar, improve insulin resistance and glucose absorption by muscles, and boost insulin secretion from the pancreas — a defensive shield against developing type II Diabetes. By balancing blood sugar, rooibos tea can also protect people that already have diabetes by preventing the spikes and drops in blood sugar that are detrimental to their overall health.
IN THE KITCHEN
Try adding some rooibos to caramelized onions, to round out a sauce, or enhance your chili.
Rooibos is actually an herb, so adding rooibos to the usual rub suspects, like salt, brown sugar, and garlic, adds a savory "Wait....Whaaaat?" note to quick-cooking meats like flank or skirt steak, as well as low-and-slow cooked cuts like pork shoulder and ribs.
SKIN CARE TIP
Drinking rooibos tea creates a soothing effect on the skin and can help reduce skin irritation and keep skin free of common conditions like acne, redness, sunburn and eczema. To make an all-natural rooibos tea face wash, steep three cups of tea. Wash your face as soon as the tea cools to lukewarm. Or add a strong pot of this tea to your bath and soak for as long as you like.
