More than a year into the pandemic, and with the dreaded 3rd wave sweeping across the nation, anxiety levels are even higher than usual. This is detrimental to emotional and physical health, with consistently high levels of stress increasing one’s risk for long-term health issues.
“Our lives have all been turned upside down over the last year and a bit, and everybody has been impacted by Covid in some way – whether it be the loss of loved ones, financial strains, health challenges related to Covid or increased anxiety and depression as a result of isolation,” said Laager Rooibos Marketing Manager, Candice Sessions. “All we can do in a situation like this is to focus on things that are within our control – like taking small steps to improve our physical and mental health.”
Laager Rooibos & Chamomile Tea combines the incredible benefits of South Africa’s local jewel, Rooibos, with the many benefits of chamomile tea which has been used as a herbal remedy for centuries. Here are 5 good reasons why it’s the perfect time to incorporate this tea blend into your daily routine.
5 reasons* to try Laager Rooibos & Chamomile Tea
- A good night’s sleep
Chamomile is renowned for the sleep-inducing properties that make it such a popular evening tea. The calming effects are generally attributed to the antioxidant, apigenin, which binds certain receptors in the brain, decreasing anxiety and initiating sleep.
- It lowers blood sugar
Another antioxidant found in chamomile tea, aspalathin, balances blood sugar, reduces insulin resistance and increases the absorption of glucose into the muscles. By drinking Laager Rooibos & Chamomile Tea, you may be reducing the long-term risks of diabetes complications.
- It improves heart health
The great thing about this product is that it combines the health-enhancing properties of both chamomile and Rooibos in one delicious cup. According to the South African Rooibos Council, numerous studies underpin the beneficial effects of Rooibos on heart health.
- It fights allergies
For many, the South African fynbos and flowers or even freshly-cut grass bring with it the annoyance of allergies. Fortunately, Rooibos can boost the production of Cytochrome P450, which helps to metabolise allergens.
- Great tasting hydration
Whatever the season, it’s important to remain hydrated. By making a batch of Laager Rooibos & Chamomile iced tea, you’re able to stay hydrated while enjoying the fresh-tasting flavour of this healthy beverage.
