Roibos has plenty of health benefit if it is a part of your daily tea routine. This red tea not only fights oxidizing effects in your body to help stop cancers from forming or blood vessels from clogging, but it can reduce the pain of headaches, irritability, nervous tension, and sleeplessness. Roibos is an antispasmotic which means it can sooth tense muscles in the stomach and act to sooth the digestive system.
In South Africa, roibos is used to treat allergies like hay fever and asthma. It also seems to be an excellent tonic for the body such that the skin is rejuvenated. Antioxidents, of course, help to slow aging, and placing compresses of roibos right on the skin is purported to help it stay young, healthy and fresh. Republic of Tea is perhaps my favorite brand and they luckily have a roibos tea for the skin especially.
