Inflammation is getting a lot of attention in the wellness world and for good reason, as it is the root cause of many diseases. So by feeding your body with anti-inflammatories, you help your immune system fight disease and illness.
One such powerful anti-inflammatory is Rooibos, which has antioxidant properties that help protect your cells against free radical damage and reduce inflammation.
Rooibos also contains Quercetin, an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant plant pigment (flavonoid) that may help manage a host of conditions including:
• Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)
• High cholesterol
• Heart disease
• Hay fever
• Peptic ulcer
• Viral infections
• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
• Chronic prostate infections
Rooibos is also a source of two comparatively rare antioxidants: aspalathin and nothofagin. Aspalathin helps to modify hormones in the body and reduces the output of adrenal hormones, which helps to reduce stress levels and inhibit metabolic disorders. Aspalathin also helps to regulate blood sugar and therefore can play a role in reducing the risk of Type 2 diabetes and excessive fat production. The antioxidant nothofagin also demonstrates significant anti-inflammatory activity and, along with aspalathin, may help to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
