Some of us are hit hard with the nasties every winter, while others, probably those of you who drink a lot of Rooibos tea, get through winter without as much as a sniffle.
A healthy immune system is built over time. It is the result of a healthy lifestyle and a healthy digestive system. However, at the change of season most of us need a little bit of extra support. Numerous studies have shown that the polyphenols in Rooibos, also known as antioxidants, help strengthen your immune system, which means that your body is better equipped to fight off any germs.
Rooibos also has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, making it the ideal drink when you’re suffering from winter sniffles.
