10 reasons to drink a rooibos latte

Here’s 10 reasons why you should be drinking a Rooibos latte. Make it with our red espresso® Rooibos:

  1. It is naturally caffeine-free so you and your family can drink it anytime of the day or night
  2. It helps soothe headaches.
  3. It has a relaxing effect of the central nervous system.
  4. It has antispasmodic properties and alleviates insomnia and irritability.
  5. It helps to boost the immune system.
  6. It acts as a digestive aid.
  7. It helps with the relief of stomach cramps, ulcers, nausea, heartburn and constipation.
  8. It has anti-allergenic and anti-asthmatic properties. It is believed to be helpful in the management of hay fever and eczema.
  9. It contains no oxalic acid (a toxic acid found in certain plants) and is therefore a good choice for those prone to kidney stones.
  10. It has low tannin content, so is not bitter-tasting like other teas. It also means that absorption of iron and proteins into the body is less affected, making it particularly good for pregnant women and people who are anemic.
