Common sense reasons why you should drink Mesa lavender Farms Rooibos Tea.
Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) is a naturally sweet non-caffeinated aromatic plant native to South Africa with numerous health benefits to include prevention of osteoporosis, diabetes, and heart attack to name a few. The research on each of these benefits is listed below. Click on the link to access the research article cited.
- Osteoporosis – this destructive bone disease is characterized by overactive osteoclasts, cells responsible for the loss of bone tissue (resorption). Teas containing Rooibos are found to have a potent inhibitory effect on osteoclasts offering a potential to prevent these diseases. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29790498
- Hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) – Research suggests chronic hyperglycemia is central in the development of myocardial infarctions (heart attacks) in diabetic patients. Rooibos has been found to have the antioxidative properties necessary to reduce diabetes-associated with cardiovascular problems. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28702068
- The combination of aspalathin (from Rooibos) and the common diabetic drug Metformin has been shown to be more effective than Metformin alone. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30044119
- Aspalathus linearis (Rooibos) has been identified to be a promising candidate which may impact cardiovascular disease. Data show antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-diabetic effects. https://pubs.rsc.org/en/Content/ArticleLanding/2018/FO/C8FO01010B#!divAbstract
