Rooibos has tremendous health-boosting properties – particularly for the liver, which takes a beating over the festive season. Scientists found that the antioxidants in Rooibos help to protect liver cells against free radicals and help damaged liver tissue to regenerate.
New Year’s Eve is upon us and that means it’s time pop the corks and raise a glass to 2016. But if you are one of the many who overindulge on the big night, it may hearten you to know that recovering from a hangover is easy when you understand the basics.
It’s actually the dehydrating effect of alcohol that is the major cause of a hangover, so a tried and tested way to prevent that morning attack of dry-mouth and headache is to rehydrate your body with liquids. But rather than reaching for ordinary tap-water, why not enjoy a cup of Rooibos tea instead? Besides being a refreshing and delicious water substitute, Rooibos also has tremendous health-boosting properties – particularly for the liver, which takes a beating over the festive season.
Scientists have found that the antioxidants in Rooibos help to protect liver cells against free radicals and also help damaged liver tissue to regenerate. They therefore recommend long-term use of Rooibos to prevent liver problems, but also to treat liver diseases.
Our overindulgence over the festive season prompts many a New Year’s resolution to look after our bodies’ better, increase our exercise levels and eat a healthier diet. We suggest that this New Year, when South African pride is running high on the eve of the Soccer World Cup, that you pledge to drink six cups of Rooibos tea a day for maximum benefit. Rooibos forms the perfect base for a healthy diet and lifestyle and offers many additional benefits, such as anti-ageing, cancer prevention, reducing anxiety, and more.
