4 ways rooibos tea helps with weight loss

Drinking a cup of rooibos tea every day can help you lose weight, and keep it off too. Many celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Catherine Zeta Jones and supermodel Cindy Crawford have already discovered this best kept secret. 

Here’s why rooibos tea is one of the best teas to drink to help with weight loss:

1. Rooibos tea contains no fat or carbohydrates

2. Rooibos tea contains only 2 – 5 calories per cup. Compare this to a cup of regular coffee (with milk and a spoonful of sugar) that has 35+ calories or a carbonated drink with 100+ calories

3. Rooibos tea is naturally sweet so you do not need to add any sugar or artificial sweeteners to your drink

4. The unique antioxidant found in rooibos tea, Aspalathin, helps to reduce stress hormones in the body that can lead to an increased appetite and fat storage; typically associated with high blood pressure, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes 

Try red espresso rooibos. It contains 10 x more of this unique antioxidant than a regular cup of brewed rooibos tea meaning the health benefits of the tea are concentrated tenfold in a 60ml shot of red espresso rooibos. Plus, red espresso rooibos is available in a range of deliciously healthy sugar-free flavoured capsules, including chai and vanilla, all 100% compatible with Nespresso machines. Ideal for weight loss and suitable to drink anytime of the day or night because it is naturally caffeine-free too.
