Pronounced "roy-boss" and means "red bush" in Afrikaans. The Rooibos Latin name is aspalathus linearis. Studies have shown this tea is comparable to green tea in the amounts of polyphenols it contains. It shows anti-mutagenic, anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral activity. In fact, it has much more antioxidants of green tea.

Our Organic Rooibos tea is totally pure and natural. It contains no additives, colorants or preservatives. It contains no caffeine, which can be harmful to the central nervous system, causing irritability, high blood pressure and erratic sleep patterns. It is low in tannin, a substance which adversely affects the bodies metabolism by decreasing the absorption of iron and protein. The clean, aromatic flavour of Rooibos can safely be enjoyed in unlimited quantities throughout the day or evening, with no harmful side-effects. In fact, it makes a soothing and relaxing evening tea before sleep!

Rooibos tea is a natural herb unique to the South African Cedarberg Mountains. During the summer months the Rooibos plants are harvested, fermented and dried in nature's laboratory. Pure mineral water, fresh mountain air and the hot African sun induces the change from verdant green to the mahogany red of Rooibos tea. Rich in many essential natural elements - to bring you a delicious elixir that you will grow to love. Enjoyed by native South Africans generation after generation. Rediscovered by botanists in the 18th century, generations enjoyed it for its naturally sweet taste - unaware of the startling powers this wonder of nature possessed nor the wide spectrum of applications we would come to discover. Not until almost 200 years later, in 1968, when South African mother, Annique Theron, stumbled across this plant's natural healing properties and ability to soothe and pacify her young child. Annique went on to investigate and document its amazing health promoting properties. She set out to share her discovery with others and spread the good news of Mother Nature's Lullaby. Today her unique findings of this remarkable herbal remedy, have been scientifically researched and have proved to be beneficial not just to babies, but to all ages.

Initially, Rooibos was harvested as the wild-growing "Aspalathus Linearis" plants by chopping them with axes and then bruising them with hammers, leaving them to ferment in heaps, before drying them in the sun. Today, the basic method of Rooibos production from planting to harvesting is largely unchanged. However, the plants are cultivated rather than collected from the wild. In addition, production methods are far more mechanized and refined. Vast improvements in production technology and stringent quality control now ensure a superior quality product every step of the way, from seed to finished product. About 18 months after seedlings are planted, they become fully-grown and are ready for harvesting. Plants are harvested once a year during mid-summer. Cut Rooibos is bound in sheaves and milled to a uniform length, then bruised between rollers to trigger the important chemical process (fermentation) which results in the characteristic amber color, distinctive flavor and sweet aroma of Rooibos. Following fermentation, the Rooibos is spread thinly over large drying yards to dry in the hot South African sun after which it is sucked up by special vacuums. At this stage the product is generally referred to as "farm tea". At Rooibos Limited, we sort and grade the product according to length, color and flavor.

Rooibos helps delay the aging process! The aging of our bodies is caused by toxic compounds called free radicals which are produced as a by-product of normal cell function. These free radicals attack our healthy cells. Over our lifetime this damage contributes to aging and our immune system weakens. Recently, Japanese scientists have found that Rooibos tea contains a mimic of the enzyme Super Oxide Dismutase (S.O.D.), an antioxidant which attacks the free radicals and limits their damaging effects.

Rooibos helps to relieve stomach ulcers, nausea, constipation, and heartburn.

Have a cup of Rooibos before you get ready for bed to ensure a good night's sleep! Rooibos has been found to help with insomnia, disturbed sleeping patterns and headaches. It contains no caffeine and has a relaxing effect on the central nervous system.

Rooibos helps to give you strong bones and teeth because of its calcium, manganese and fluoride content.

Rooibos helps pacify infants with colic, stomach cramps and sleeping problems. Simply mix some Rooibos tea with expressed breast milk or formula. It is 100% natural with no colorants or preservatives. It is a mother's miracle.

Rooibos contains alpha hydroxy acid and zinc for healthy, smooth skin. This wonder tea is especially useful when applied to skin irritations like itchy skin, eczema, sunburns, diaper rash and acne.

Put used rooibos tea bags in the refrigerator or freezer. After a hard day's work, put on tired or red eyes to soothe and relax.

Rooibos contains magnesium which is necessary for a healthy nervous system.

Rooibos increases the absorption of iron in the body.

Rooibos contains potassium and copper minerals that are necessary for several metabolic functions.

Rooibos is often prescribed for nervous tension and mild depression as it makes a relaxing sedative.

Rooibos contains no oxalic acid and can therefore be enjoyed by persons suffering from kidney stones.

Rooibos helps to control your appetite thus can be beneficial in weight loss.

Rooibos helps you recoup after a hangover.

Rooibos makes a great thirst-quencher and sport drink. Because of its mineral content of iron, potassium, zinc, manganese and sodium, it restores the body's equilibrium after strenuous exercise.

Rooibos is very versatile! Drink it hot or cold, with or without milk, sugar or honey. Add lemon or mix it with fruit juices for a lovely blend. Rooibos tea is also used in cooking and baking. It replaces the liquid content in recipes for soups, marinades, sauces, stews and cakes for added flavor and nutrition.

And Rooibos tastes divine! It is less bitter than most teas.

The health promoting properties of the different classes of chemical compounds found in Rooibos may be summarised as follows.

1. Phenolic Carboxylic acids. 4- Hydroxybenzoic acid, 3,4 Di hydroxybenzoic acid, 4- hydroxy 3- methoxybenzoic acid, 4- hydroxy-3,5-di methoxybenzoic acid, 4- cuomaric acid, caffeic acid and ferulic acid. These compounds all possess antibacterial and antifungal properties, explaining the beneficial effects the women experience when using a weak Rooibos solution as a face wash. The carboxylic acids are also weak antioxidants.

2.Flavones, Flavonols and C-O glycosides. Luteolin, chrysoerial, luteolin-7-0-glucoside,quercetin,isoquercitin and rutin. Luteoin and quercetin possess strong antispasmodic properties, explaining the positive effect when Rooibos is given to babies with colic. Luteolin, quercetin, isoquercetin and rutin possess strong antioxidant properties. All four compounds also inhibit aldose reductase, a target enzyme for pharmacological control of diabetic complications. Rutin - enhances the stability and permeability of capillary arteries. Quercetin prevents the oxidation of low intensity lipoproteins (LDL) and may thus indicate anti-atherosclerotic activity.

3. Flavone glycosides. Orientin, iso-orientin, vitexin and iso-vitexin contribute towards antioxidant properties and may possess hypotensive activity (lowers blood pressure)

4. Flavanone glycosides Dihydro-orientin and dihydro-iso-orientin are non-nutritional sweeteners and may thus contribute towards the pleasant sweet and natural taste of Rooibos tea.

5. Dihydrochalcone glycosides Aspalathin and nothofagin are non-nutritional sweeteners and strong antioxidants.

6. Tannins. (+) -Catechin, procyanidin B-3 and bis-fisetinidol-catechin. Tannins reduce the digestibility of proteins by complexation thus creating an adverse effect as far as human feeding is concerned. However, there is now convincing evidence that the tannins in red wine are responsible for the "French paradox". Despite a high fat diet, there is a low incidence of heart disease and cancer due to a high consumption of red wine. Catechin is utilised in a variety of formulations e.g: toothpaste, candy, breakfast cereal, ice-cream, etc. in Japan.

7. Non -phenolics. (+)- Pinitol possesses hypoglycemic (lowers level of blood sugar) and anti diabetic properties and it is used as expectorant.

8.Alpha-hydroxy acids. Phenylpyruvic acid glycoside This type of compound is an important ingredient of beauty creams and therapeutic preparations for dermatological diseases. It may explain the success of beauty creams containing Rooibos in the remarkable ability of the Rooibos supplement to preserve young and beautiful complexions.

9. Minerals. Iron, potassium, calcium, copper, zinc, manganese and sodium are essential for normal human metabolic processes. Rooibos is naturally caffeine free it is claimed to relieve nervous tension and thus helps to relieve insomnia.

10. Why is an antioxidant necessary in the human diet. Free radicals (the same as Reactive Oxygen Species ROS) are chemically highly reactive molecules that indiscriminately attack human tissue and cause all kinds of problems, for example ageing, cancer, heart and arterial diseases, etc. The body copes with these by means of SOD (super oxide dismutase enzyme). During ageing or poor health SOD levels drop, and it is then that the diet should be rich in the antioxidants in order to help the body to cope with free radicals. The flavonoids and tannins in Rooibos are proven antioxidants. Thus, apart from the pleasant taste, a cup of Rooibos is also an essential part of any diet supplementary to foods or beverages.
Rooibos as antioxidant

There is now a general belief amongst scientists that certain food substances, so-called antioxidants, can play a role in preventing cancer, cardio-vascular diseases and ageing.  Examples of well known antioxidants are vitamin C and vitamin E, two food substances which form part of a normal healthy diet.  Our food also contains other components with strong antioxidant activity, known as flavonoids.  Since Rooibos is very rich in flavonoids, it is highly likely that the health promoting properties are linked to the antioxidant effects of flavonoids.


The role of oxygen free radicals

Our bodies use oxygen to convert food items such as fat and sugar into energy, in this process, oxygen is converted to water, and each water molecule normally takes up four electrons.  However some oxygen may escape before the conversion is complete, and this results in about 2% of the oxygen having an electron deficit.  These particles are called free radicals or super oxide radicals.  They may also be formed in the human body through other processes, such as air pollution, smoking and exposure to radiation.  Free oxygen radicals are extremely reactive and can cause damage to body proteins and fats, and also to the hereditary material of cells, known as DNA.  The oxygen free radical (super oxide radical) can be converted to even more damaging radicals by a chain reaction. 

Fortunately our bodies have some protective mechanisms against the harmful effects of free oxygen radicals and other even more powerful radicals such as the so-called peroxides and hydroxyl radicals.  The protective mechanisms are enzymes and antioxidants.

Some enzymes in the human body are capable of neutralizing the oxygen free radicals as soon as they are formed.  The best known of such enzymes is called SOD (super oxide dismutase).  SOD and other enzymes convert super oxide and damage to lipids and to DNA  This mechanism slows down in later life, so that the damage may accumulate and become visible as the process of ageing, when tissues lose their elasticity.  Damage to the hereditary material (DNA) in a normal cell may cause it to become a cancer cell.  It  is also thought that free radicals may play a role in the development of cardiovascular disease such as atherosclerosis (here the coronary arteries become blocked by a gradual thickening of the wall).


Antioxidantsprevent damage

The chain reaction of damage in the human body caused by free radicals can be interrupted by antioxidants.  Vitamin E, which is found in vegetable oils, is the most effective antioxidant.  It stops the chain reaction by becoming a radical itself, but since it is stable, no further damage is done.  Other well known antioxidants are vitamin C and carotenoids, found in fruit and vegetables.  Finally, there are the flavonoids, which occur in abundance in Rooibos.


Flavonoids and free radicals

Flavonoids are powerful antioxidants, and have more antioxidant activity than vitamin C.  Laboratory studies have shown that the antioxidant activity of Rooibos is more or less similar to that of black tea and green tea.  The flavonoids of Rooibos are now well known.  The major one is aspalathin, found only in Rooibos and nowhere else.  Several other flavonoids have been identified, including nothofagin, vitexdn, lsovitex, orietin, isoorientin, luteolin and quercetin.  in the process of fermentation, aspalathin may be converted to other substances but these possibly have even better antioxidant properties than aspalathin itself.  Much research remains to be done on Rooibos flavonoids, but it is reasonable to assume that the health promoting properties are partly due to the antioxidant effects of the flavonoids.
