Why should I drink Red Joe versus tea or plain water?

Red Joe contains essentially the same antioxidant profile as popular green, black and white teas, but it also contains additional polyphenols and other plant constituents.  It contains minerals and is very low in tannins and tannic acid, which can interfere with the body’s ability to absorb certain nutrients.  In addition, there is no oxalic acid which can cause kidney stones in tea drinkers –  and there are no calories.

In other words, this is a “super hydration” beverage, providing the power of minerals and antioxidants.

What are antioxidants and why are they important?

An antioxidant is a molecule that can inhibit the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation reactions can produce unstable and possibly damaging compounds, known as “free radicals”. Antioxidants are capable of limiting the damage caused by free radicals, by “scavenging,” neutralizing and inactivating them. Several scientific analyses  have shown that Rooibos extracts contain powerful antioxidant, free radical scavengers and so help to protect cells and important cellular components such as lipids, proteins and genetic material (DNA) against oxidative damage. Aspalathin is an active antioxidant in Rooibos which is not found anywhere else in nature.

Will drinking Red Joe effect my sleep?

Rooibos is known for its calmative properties that help you to relax at night and promote a good night’s sleep. However, if you drink Rooibos any time of the day, it will not make you feel drowsy or anxious.

Does Rooibos effect appetite?

There is no scientific evidence that Rooibos stimulates appetite. On the contrary, Rooibos can play a role in weight management. A research project that was started at South Africa’s Medical Research Council in 2011 is looking at the role of Rooibos in the metabolic processes whereby the body stores and breaks down fat. One thing for sure, when following any weight loss diet or plan, it is essential to keep the body hydrated—and drinking Rooibos will do that for you.
