Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb. It contains compounds called curcuminoids, where curcumin is the main active ingredient. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. However, curcumin is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. It helps to consume black pepper with it, which contains piperine, a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin by as much as 2000%.
Honeybush, also known as Cyclopia, is indigenous to the cape of South Africa and has a pleasant, mildly sweet taste and aroma, akin to honey. Rooibos, meaning “red bush”, is also from South Africa and referred to as “red tea”. Rooibos is an herbal infusion that helps relieve hypertension and headaches. Ginger aids in digestion and strengthens the immune system.
The combination of rooibos and honeybush is really fantastic – this herbal infusion stands out head-and-shoulders above our other roobios blends. But the other ones are very yummy too! Check out this blog article to see all our Rooibos Blends!
