Rooibos tea and its benefits in the morning

Like most people, the first thing we do in the morning is to brew a favorite cuppa. Whether you’re still bleary-eyed or miraculously wide awake, a hot drink is what we all crave as soon as we wake up. Coffee remains a popular choice for many, have you considered a cup of healthy rooibos tea instead?

Here are Rooibos Rocks 3 fantastic reasons why drinking rooibos tea in the morning can be incredible for you and your health.

1. No Sugar No Calories

Excess sugar affects your body, including the brain, heart, skin, and teeth in many ways and let’s not forget what it does to our weight! Rooibos tea, being sugar and calorie-free, is a fantastic substitute for sugary drinks in the morning. Not only is rooibos tea delicious and healthy, but with its naturally sweet flavor, you won’t even realize the sugar isn’t there!

2. No caffeine in Rooibos means no negative effects

We’ve all heard of the negative effects of caffeine, but have you ever experienced a caffeine slump soon after your morning cup of coffee? Caffeinated drinks, while useful for a pick me up, are likely to result in a “crash” soon after the caffeine departs your system, leaving you feeling a drop in energy and mood. Rooibos tea, being 100% caffeine-free, is a delicious and healthy alternative if you’d like to completely eliminate those not-so-great effects.

3. Hydration and an Anti-oxidant boost

DID YOU KNOW: The adult human body is comprised of up to 60% water.

Proper hydration of the body is essential to living healthily, but why should you drink even more fluids in the morning? The body loses water while we sleep, through perspiration and breathing, so ensuring that we rehydrate first thing in the morning is very important. Rooibos tea is an excellent way to help in this process. With it being caffeine-free, low in tannins, and rich in minerals and antioxidants, rooibos tea is the perfect way to hydrate as well as help boost your antioxidant levels first thing in the morning!
