Superfood rooibos for super sports performance

Did you know that Rooibos has been scientifically proven to boost sports performance?

Rooibos has about a million benefits, and we’re not even exaggerating.

The list of benefits includes:

  • Naturally caffeine-free,
  • Contains high levels of beneficial antioxidants
  • Rich in many essential minerals the body needs such as iron, calcium, potassium, copper, manganese, zinc, magnesium and alpha hydroxy acid.

Ernest du Toit, spokesperson for the Rooibos Council says drinking Rooibos tea won’t turn you into a super-human endurance athlete, but it has been shown to have performance-boosting benefits when consumed before, during or after a run.

“Athletes would benefit from Rooibos tea’s powerful army of antioxidants that fight inflammation and boost circulation, in order to help heal damaged muscle tissue. It also has a high concentration of magnesium and zinc, which aids in testosterone production, which is important for the body’s durability and ability to recover, along with calcium, magnesium and manganese, which are vital for bone health. In addition, Rooibos helps the body to absorb iron, which enhances oxygen delivery to the muscles, which is critical in endurance racing.

“Studies comparing Rooibos with other teas found Rooibos to have similar levels of the known antioxidants associated with green tea, for example. However, Rooibos appears to contain additional active antioxidant components, which are not present in green or other teas, and maybe more effective,” says du Toit.
