Mandela Tea Organic Honeybush & Rooibos
The Mandela Tea range contains honeybush, rooibos, and buchu – all indigenous teas to South Africa.
Honeybush tea contains many of the 14 minerals essential to health and well-being. Among these are the critical elements: Iron, Potassium, Calcium, and Manganese, which are vital to the prevention of anaemia, fluid balance abnormalities, and for adequate bone growth and repair. It is rich in antioxidants, isoflavours, and contestants. These compounds counter oxidative stress, and prevent the production of free radicals, helping to maintain the natural immune defence system. Additionally, Honeybush tea is known to have a stablising effect on the control of blood sugar levels, and contains preventative anti-carcinogenic properties.
Rooibos assists with nervous tension, allergies and digestive problems; alleviates infantile colic, allergies, asthma and dermatological conditions.
