Discover Rooibos – Great alternative to tea

Looking for a super healthy CAFFEINE FREE drink that is also a super source of antioxidant?

Rooibos is not a tea but rather a South African herb. You may see it simply called “Red Bush” or “Red Tea”

It is tea-like in that it is brewed and steeped just like tea so we include it on our website.

The health benefits are pretty impressive and can be backed up with good data and documented research.

Tests have proven that the amount of antioxidant found in the Rooibos plant far exceeds any other plant known.

For example Institute for Science of Aging at AICHI Medical University in Japan, showed Red Tea to contain Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD) – an outstanding antioxidant – polyphenols and flavonoids, all prime fighters of free radical damage.

Free radical damage is a known cause of aging, and in the formation of cancer and other diseases. The more antioxidant you consume the better you can defend against the ravages of these ailments.

Here is a breakdown of the benefits reported from drinking three 6oz Cups of rooibos daily…

  • Anti-aging defense – polyphenols in Rooibos prevent free radicals from damaging DNA, nipping cancer initiation in the bud.
  • Recommended for people suffering from irritability, stress, headaches, disturbed sleeping patterns, insomnia, nervous tension and mild depression or hypertension.
  • Great source of calcium, manganese and fluoride. Builds strong bones and teeth
  • It’s anti-spasmodic properties help pacify infants with colic, stomach cramps and sleeping problems. Mothers miracle!
  • relieves stomach and digestive problems like nausea, vomiting, heartburn, stomach ulcers and constipation.
  • Great for the skin; Can be applied to aid in relieving skin irritation like itchy skin, eczema, sunburns, diaper rash, acne and rosacea.
  • Helps to control your appetite thus can be beneficial in weight loss.
  • Rich in minerals; makes a great natural thirst-quencher similar to “sports drinks”

But wait! My mom always told me that if it “tastes good it can’t be that good for you!

She was wrong! (just this time…)

I tried the Rooibos tea plain and found the taste to be quite earthy and refreshing; mixed with club soda and juice it made a fantastic healthy punch drink.

Rooibos – cancer prevention

Looking For A Natural Anti-Oxidant?

The following article about “Rooibos” is printed with permission from GHS, we felt it well worth your time to read, especially those interested in powerful – natural antioxidants.

Rooibos – “A Powerful Anti-Oxidant”

Before I give you evidence of how ridiculous this statement is, I want to tell you a little about cancer and rooibos tea, the tea that Good Health Supplements recommends.

Numerous studies have also been run with rooibos tea with regard to preventing cancer.

We don’t hear much about these studies because rooibos tea is not yet as popular a drink as green tea. Many of these studies were run parallel with green and black teas, with the studies coming to similar conclusions, and in some cases, rooibos tea showed more positive results.

These positive conclusions are a result of the high, varied and powerful anti-oxidants contained in rooibos tea.

What is also significant is that rooibos tea naturally contains no caffeine or acid, as do both green and black teas. Exceedingly more important is the fact that (redbush) rooibos tea, and especially the extract from the green rooibos plant, is the only tea and pure extract to contain the very powerful anti-oxidant Aspalathax.

Aspalathax cannot be found in any other plant in the world!

Aspalathox is a very powerful anti-oxidant in the fight to prevent cancer and other major developed diseases. It gives the immune system a strong boost. The powerful anti-oxidants found in the extract from the rooibos plant will also aid in the prevention of viral and bacterial diseases.

With all of this, you need to ask yourself, how in the face of so many world-wide studies to the contrary, can the FDA make the statement they made?

Also ask yourself if this is just another shot fired in their battle against alternative and preventative means for preventing and curing disease?

Is what they are doing all about protecting their pro-active position on drugs while ignoring the truth regarding alternative possibilities? Let’s see.

Here are some proofs the FDA has chosen to ignore. Check out these reports. I know you will find them interesting. I just cite these few to add to the two the FDA cited, but there are many, many studies that have come to the same conclusion, research that has been done in so many countries around the world concluding that the anti-oxidants in green tea is a major aid in preventing cancer. Are all these scientists wrong?

  • In 2004, the American Association for Cancer Research published the results of a study that concluded that “Green Tea Polyphenols Thwart Prostate Cancer Development at Multiple Levels.
  • In 2003, an Australian study found that regularly drinking green tea can reduce the risk of prostate cancer by two-thirds.
  • And then again in 2005 at the 96th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, the results of a clinical study were announced that showed 90 percent efficacy of green tea in men with pre-malignant prostate lesions.

Know that cancer is not something we catch. It is a developed disease that can be prevented by healthy eating, exercise and the use of a powerful food-based anti-oxidant.

We need to stop trying to simply cure cancer. We need to prevent cancer! Prevention is not an FDA philosophy, but it’s a lot easier to do and a whole lot cheaper.

The U.S. government has spent over 100 Billion Dollars trying to find a cure for cancer and all we have gotten from the medical profession, research laboratories, and the drugs companies who spend our money is more cancer and more pain and more death.

Don’t you think it’s time we spent some of that money and energy on teaching people how to prevent cancer in the first place? Believe me, it’s a whole lot easier and far more effective.

So, drink lots of rooibos tea, or, even more effective, take one of our powerful green rooibos plant anti-oxidant capsules every day. The anti-oxidant value is so powerful that one capsule is equivalent to drinking 46 cups of tea.
