Our story began in 1969 when Yogi Bhajan, an inspirational teacher of holistic living, started teaching yoga in the west. He shared with his students his wisdom and knowledge of healthy living and the beneficial properties of herbs, all while serving a comforting and aromatic spiced tea they affectionately named "Yogi Tea".

I didn’t know (but I just found out)… that Red Rooibos tea can help prevent heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and more.
Red Rooibos (RR) contains a high level of minerals and antioxidants, including copper, iron, potassium, calcium, fluoride, zinc, manganese, alpha-hydroxy (great for the skin), and magnesium. It acts as an anti-spasmodic agent to relieve stomach cramps and colic in infants, boosts the immune system, and helps with nervous tension, allergies, and digestive problems. The Western world has a fascination with all things exotic, and RR is no exception.
(RED ROOIBOS CUT LEAF)
Rooibos tea (pronounced roo-ee-bosh), which originates in the Cederberg province near Cape Town, South Africa, isn’t technically a tea at all. It is a robust herbal tisane, (the catch-all term for any non-caffeinated beverage made from the infusion of herbs, spices, or other plant material), and its flavor has a sweet, almost nutty quality. It is caffeine-free and antioxidant-rich.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF RED ROOIBOS TEA
Aspalathin, one of the flavonoids it contains, carries many health benefits:
Balances blood sugar
Improve glucose tolerance
Increases glucose absorption in muscle
Increases insulin secretion in the pancreas
For all of these reasons, this flavonoid reduces your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Red Rooibos doesn’t stop there. It also contains the super-antioxidant compound quercetin noted for promoting heart health. Chronic inflammation is tied to virtually every life-threatening illness, and quercetin acts as both an anti-inflammatory and as an anti-cancer agent.
Studies have shown RR has great heart health benefits:
• Reduced cholesterol oxidation, a primary cause of heart disease
• Lowered levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol
• Increased levels of HDL (good) cholesterol
