Will drinking Rooibos fit with my New Year wellbeing resolutions?
Every year most of us kick off January with some health and fitness resolutions. This year especially – with Covid here to stay for a while yet the need to keep ourselves in the best possible shape has never been greater. Making Rooibos Rocks part of your new regime makes a lot of sense. On the one hand, switching from less healthy beverages is hardly a tough challenge – the refreshing flavor makes it a pleasure to drink. On the other, whatever weight loss, detox, or wellbeing diet you go for, Rooibos Rocks is totally complimentary.
Rooibos cuts out the stuff you should avoid
All the popular diets, from the Paleo Diet to the Dukan Diet, an Ultra Low-Fat Diet to a Flexitarian Diet, take very different approaches – but have similar goals. They are designed to cut out the stuff you don’t need and replace it with stuff that, one way or another, does you good. Following this principle means that many of them discourage the consumption of traditional tea and coffee. That’s because both beverages contain caffeine, which is not great if you are trying to detox your system. Rooibos, however, is caffeine-free and ideal if you are trying to clear your system of stimulants. So it works in harmony with the approach taken by many of these diets.
Then there’s the issue of sugar. Can you think of a weight-loss or wellbeing diet that encourages you to consume sugar? We certainly can’t. Coffee and traditional tea have a bitter taste that encourages you to add sugar. Rooibos, however, is naturally sweet so there’s less temptation to undo all your good work with a teaspoon or two of the white stuff. Even worse are sodas – they’re loaded with sugar and artificial sweeteners. Switching to iced Rooibos is miles better for you!
Finally, if you want to lose weight (and that’s a major goal with most diets) then you want to limit the calories. Rooibos Rocks has zero calories, so no problems there either.
Rooibos gives you lots of stuff that does you good
Rooibos is packed with goodness. Scientific studies suggest that:
- Rooibos is caffeine-free so it won’t stimulate your system. It also contains compounds that can suppress the production of cortisol, a stress hormone. You’ll enjoy better sleep and a greater sense of calm – very important for your wellbeing.
- Rooibos contains a flavonoid that reduces inflammation. It can ease skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and rashes. It also helps with joint pains, heart problems, and digestive complaints.
- The antioxidants in Rooibos can boost your immune system and help your body fight off infection – just what you need when Covid is about.
- Rooibos is rich in antioxidants, including Quercetin, Aspalathin, and Chrysoeriol. These may help prevent damage caused by excess free radicals in the body and guard you against serious health issues such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
- Rooibos can be beneficial for heart health by reducing levels of Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme, bringing down blood pressure, and helping with weight management.
We hope this answers your question. A lot of other beverages, like sodas, tea and coffee, can have a counterproductive effect if you are on any kind of diet. Not so Rooibos – bursting with natural goodness, caffeine-free and with no sugar or calories, it’s the perfect partner for any diet designed to help you lose weight, detox or improve your wellbeing.
