Feature Ingredient - Organic Green Rooibos

by Jamie Smellie July 14, 2015

You are what you eat.

Here at The Teatox Company, we couldn’t agree more with this sentiment. However, we also know that it’s an easy statement to ignore! Hey, we are guilty of wanting to remain in a state of sugary and sweet bliss too. However, there is no denying that we feel our best when we are eating to fuel our bodies. We also truly believe knowledge is power, which is why it is so important to know exactly what ingredients are hiding in your pantry just waiting to reinforce those sugar cravings and which ingredients are powerful positive additions to your diet! We’ve been there, which is why we make it a priority to use only the best, all natural and organic ingredients in our products.

Today we are going to single out a rich and powerful antioxidant which just so happens to be a key ingredient in our daytime teas: Organic Green Rooibos. Rooibos is harvested from the leaves of the Aspalathus Linearus (or "red bush") plant which grow in the heart of South Africa. For centuries, people have been making tea with rooibos leaves because of its many health benefits and nutritional value. 

 Here are just a few of its stellar contributions to health:

  • Fights inflammation, which can lead to chronic disease like cancer and heart disease
  • Helps to combat stress by keeping the cortisol hormone in check 
  • Aids with digestion and stomach pains
  • Slows the aging process to keep you looking young and healthy 
  • Strengthens teeth and bones 
  • Enhances your immune system, and all around health 


It also has a fresh and mildly sweet aroma which adds the perfect flavour to a cup of tea.

With love + tea,
