Asides from being the ultimate morning, afternoon and late-night comfort drink, rooibos also offers a wealth of health benefits; and is a source of unique dietary dihydrochalcones, Nothofagin, the only plant known to science to contain the phenolic anti-oxidant Aspalathin, which has strong antioxidant properties.

Now, research suggests that Green Rooibos Tea extract may also have powerful anti-diabetic effects. Researchers found that an aspalathin-enriched extract of green rooibos can lower raised glucose levels in the blood of diabetic rats in a similar way to existing diabetic drugs.

This research confirms that rooibos may be beneficial in the fight against diabetes and that it could be a valuable ingredient in new anti-diabetic products, particularly in a country like South Africa, where herbal medicines are very popular in the broader market.



To harness the potential benefits of this powerful antioxidant, take Releaf Multivitamin with GRT (Green Rooibos Tea) which is the first local product to be formulated with GRT™, a potent natural source of antioxidants that may help contribute to a healthy immune system.
