anti-oxidant agent to keep free radicals in the body in check.
If left unchecked, free radicals can initiate reactions that may
cause cells to develop abnormalities. As an anti-oxidant,
Rooibos scavenges on free radicals thereby preventing
potential cell mutations or damage. Besides that, SOD also
promotes healthy cell growth.
Rooibosis is also a superb thirst-quencher. Imported from South Africa , Rooibos makes an ideal drink, either hot or chilled on its own or sweetened with honey or sugar and with or without milk. On a hot day, Rooibos can also be mixed with fruit juice.
As Rooibos does not contain caffeine, it can be enjoyed in unlimited quantities for sportsmen. Its rich mineral contents – iron, potassium, zinc, manganese and sodium can help restore the body's equilibrium after a strenuous workout.
Rooibos is not only for drinking. In baking, Rooibos can be use to replace the liquid content of any recipe for added color and flavor. Rooibos also makes a superb base for soups, stews and sauces.
