Nutrition from Mother Nature

Generations of South Africans have been enjoying the natural sweet and revitalising taste of Rooibos since its discovery by botanists in 1772. Little did they realize the powerful and natural healing properties of this rare and unique plant from the cold, windy, south-western tip of Africa.

 

Annique’s Export Grade Rooibos Tea is a caffeine free drink from the mountains of the Cape of Good Hope. This product is all-natural, free of any preservatives or artificial
colourants and hygienically treated for your health’s sake. Rooibos is good for everybody and is never harmful. If thirsty, it quenches; if exercising, it strengthens; if sleepless, it induces sound sleep. Excellent for babies when combined with their bottlefeed.

All-in-all the world’s most superb health drink: Annique’s Rooibos tea. Rooibos tea also boasts the following benefits:
• Rooibos Tea is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids. The effect of free radicals (a by-product of abnormal cell function) in the process of ageing and declining of the immune system is limited by the antioxidants in Rooibos tea.
• Rooibos Tea is completely pure and natural, as it contains no additives, preservatives or colourants. It is a soothing drink for people on a calorie-restricted diet, without adding kilojoules.
• Rooibos Tea is also strongly recommended for people suffering from irritability, headaches, disturbed sleeping patterns, insomnia, nervous tension, mild depression or hypertension. Rooibos Tea contains no caffeine and therefore has a soothing effect on the central nervous system. Rooibos Tea is also low in tannin and therefore does not have a negative effect on the absorption of iron and proteins by the body.
• Rooibos Tea has anti-spasmodic properties, thus relieving stomach cramps and colic in infants. Rooibos tea can also help to relieve stomach and digestive problems like nausea,
vomiting, heartburn, stomach ulcers and constipation.
• Rooibos Tea also supplements the daily amounts of calcium, manganese and especially fluoride, needed for the development of strong teeth and bones. It contains zinc and alpha-hydroxy acid, which promotes healthy skin and magnesium which is necessary for a healthy nervous system.
• Rooibos Tea has a soothing effect on the skin, relieving itching and certain skin irritations like eczema, nappy rash and acne when directly applied to the affected area.

Annique only sells Super Export Grade Rooibos tea which contains at least 80% Rooibos leaves. Some of the Rooibos tea found on Supermarket shelves contain less than 20% leaves. This is critical since the active ingredients in Rooibos are essentially found in the leaves not the sticks!
