Looking for a beverage that is good for your heart, your teeth, and your skin? Rooibos may be the perfect choice for you!
One of the world's healthiest herbals, Rooibos (pronounced roy-boss or roy-bosh) is harvested from a South African shrub called Aspalathus linearis. Touted for its antioxidant powers, Rooibos has been used by the Khoi peoples of South Africa for centuries as a fortifying herbal remedy for a wide range of ailments.
Nurtured by the South African sun, we exclusively source our Rooibos from the rugged slopes of South Africa's Cederberg mountains, the only place from which we can achieve the naturally sweet and exquisitely smooth infusions that are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Rich in anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, Rooibos is your secret weapon for protecting your immune system (1). A powerful antioxidant unique to Rooibos is aspalathin. With regular consumption, this superhero sidekick helps to stabilize the harmful activity of free radicals in the body, which has been correlated with reduced risk regarding illnesses such as Alzheimer's, Type 2 Diabetes and heart disease (2)(3) .
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
Rooibos tea is also packed with beneficial minerals that can supercharge your health. Calcium, manganese, and fluoride are all present in Rooibos, which are minerals that are essential for the development of strong teeth and bones (4). Rooibos also contains copper and potassium that are good for metabolism, and iron which can be especially elusive for women on-the-go (5).
