LongeviTEA – Rooibos is good for you at every stage of your life
Rooibos is the only drink we’ve ever found that is safe and beneficial for every single stage of your life.
When you’re a bumpMoms-to-be are advised to limit their daily intake of caffeine to about 200 milligrams – about the same as 2 mugs of instant coffee. That’s because high levels of caffeine in pregnancy can result in babies having a low birth weight, which can increase the risk of health problems in later life. Rooibos is caffeine-free and sugar-free so your mom can drink as much as she likes.
When you’re expectingRooibos is not only good for babies but for mom as well.It contains calcium, magnesium, and high amounts of antioxidants that benefit both of you.It also helps with digestion, prevents acid reflux, soothes the body’s reactions to allergens, and prevents constipation, alongside a number of other benefits of particular value to women during pregnancy.
Soon after you are bornRooibos is a safe and natural remedy for treating colic in babies. The antispasmodic properties help calm your baby’s stomach and ease stomach cramps.
When you’re a kidYou run around a lot – so it’s important to stay hydrated. And iced Rooibos is ideal. You are buzzed up enough already so you don’t need the caffeine that’s in regular tea. And ice tea mixes and other soft drinks are loaded with sugar. Sugar gives you a rush of energy, then you crash – great for producing temper tantrums. Sugar also rots your teeth and piles on the weight. Rooibos is naturally sweet enough, despite having zero sugar, so totally kid-friendly.
When you are an adult
Consuming a lot of caffeine and sugar over the course of your adult life has its downsides – it can mess up your sleep patterns, give you the shakes, raise your blood pressure and pile on the weight, to name but a few. But that’s not the only reason Rooibos drinking is a healthy habit to get into.
Aging is unavoidable, but Rooibos can help slow the process. It’s a source of calcium, magnesium, and potassium, as well as the rare antioxidants Aspalathin and Nothofagin. These antioxidants suppress oxidative stress of the type which some studies believe may lead to diseases such as Alzheimer's. Some research even suggests it protects your skin and may slow the development of wrinkles.
