A time to this part, the rooibos, as has happened with the tea matcha and other natural beverages, has become one of those drinks that have the lists of the famous and all those people who bet for a healthy life. Even, known as millenials also know the benefits and properties of these drinks and consume them on a daily basis.

But what is the rooibos , which makes it a drink so special? Then I'm going to tell you only properties and benefits of rooibos, but also on other interesting aspects of this drink is originally from south Africa, as are the benefits that it brings to people who want to do sport, those who want to lose weight, or how this is a drink suitable for pregnant women and moms of infants, benefiting even to their children.

Before moving on to talk about the properties and benefits of rooibos, a special mention deserves a small pre-review of their origin and the different varieties that exist. Because yes, rooibos not only is there a variety, but two:

  • rooibos red: that is the common, which we use in almost all of our infusions and which owes its name to the color of its leaves. A color obtained thanks to the oxidation suffered during the fermentation process.
  • Rooibos green: unlike the previous, this has not gone through a process of oxidation, so it retains its color of origin, the green. Normally used to mix it with other herbs, but in the Aromas of Tea is also what we sell, organically grown, without any kind of mixtures. The taste is similar to green tea, but, of course, without caffeine.

Unlike other teas, rooibos is made from the leaves of the plant Aspalathus linearis. In fact, it is not a tea in itself, but is embedded within that list, since it contains no caffeine. An advantage, obviously, for those people who wish to enjoy an infusion with a wide listing of properties, which can be taken at any time and share with all the members of the family, because it can take large and small.

Properties and benefits of rooibos

Some of the properties and benefits of this tea made with a plant native to south Africa are very well known, others, not so much. So I hope that this list will be of great help to clear up any doubts:

  • Low content of tannins: so this is not a drink that's as astringent as other teas. This also makes the flavor of the rooibos is very mild and pleasant. One more point to take in the company of those you love most.
  • Antispasmodic properties and anti-inflammatory: thus it is ideal to end up with digestive problems, such as diarrhea, constipations, stomach aches or gastritits, among other conditions of these features. But not only that, thanks to the properties mentioned, the rooibos also lessens the pain of head and of throat, so that it is a beverage highly recommended at any time of the year.
  • Or theine, or caffeine: so that it will not alter our state of mind and, therefore, can be taken at any time of the day, in addition to who can take people who have heart problems, as well as those that have problems with insomnia, suffering from stress... in short, all those people who cannot consume or theine, or caffeine.
  • Rich in phytochemicals: what they do to prevent premature aging from free radicals, but not only that, it also prevents or helps to reduce problems such as eczema, skin spots, wrinkles, hives, or dermatitis, among others.
  • Rich in magnesium, potassium and sodium: helps to reduce problems related to metabolism, such as the retention of liquids. In this sense, it is also a great ally for people who want to lose weight or who are overweight.
  • Rich in calcium: so the rooibos is also ideal for caring for the dental health and, in the case of women, to take care of the bones before, during and after the period of menopause.

Rooibos for weight loss

As we have already said, the rooibos is an excellent ally to lose weight, why? There are several reasons. The first and most important is that it is a type of infusion speeds up the metabolism, thus improving our digestive health, reducing constipation problems in the event that there is (which, by the way, is one of the reasons why people gain weight and burning fat effectively and naturally. All this is thanks to the antioxidant properties mentioned before.

But, on the other hand and thanks to its diuretic properties, we may also lose weight the natural way.

So, if our goal is slimming down and add the rooibos within the guidelines of healthy life that we must take to achieve this, experts advise to drink 2 to 3 cups a day of this delicious infusion. The first of these is important to take it on an empty stomach, without having eaten anything beforehand, so the diuretic effect is greater. You can take the second after eating, so that you can make a correct digestion and fight against the constipation or indigestion. The last I recommend that you do it before bed, after dinner (remember, don't go to bed immediately after dinner. Leave at least an hour), so that the rooibos does not only meets your digestive function, but also fat-burning, for the night.

What if you fancy any infusion or tea throughout the day? As it has no caffeine, of course, you'll be able to take one or two more. You can incorporate mid-morning or mid-afternoon. It can also be a good idea to prepare a thermos of rooibos and take to work, to walk or to do sports and keep taking little by little.

All these vitamins and minerals are the athletes lost during sports practice, so taking a rooibos before, during and after will allow, on the one hand, to retrieve the nutrients that are lost and, on the other, it does not have muscle soreness the next day. Two for one!
