Trouble falling asleep? Rooibos tea can help
Who does not have had those nights of tossing and turning from one side to the other? Thinking about this, about that … makes it extremely difficult to disconnect and fall asleep. In the end we wake up tired, irritable and unwell.
Today we would like to present you a little helper that can be your great ally in moments like these: Rooibos tea. Discover its benefits here and hopefully it will help you to have a better rest.
Bedtime tea with no caffeine – Rooibos
Rooibos is not really a “tea”, as it is not obtained from the Camellia sinensis plant. It is a herbal tea, coming from the leaves of Aspalathus linearis, a shrub native to South Africa.
Therefore, this herbal tea does not contain theine. Theine is a stimulating chemical compound that is found in nature, in different plants such as tea, coffee or guarana. Depending on the plant it comes from, it can be called theine, caffeine or guaranine.
And while consuming limited doses of caffeine has been shown to be beneficial to health, overindulging can have adverse effects. Palpitations, anxiety, migraines, and sleep-related problems can occur.
Because of this, we must consider other healthy beverages that make us feel good. Free of caffeine and theine. A relaxing rooibos can be an excellent alternative, its taste is delicate and earthy and its caffeine content is naturally zero.
Can´t fall asleep? Drink rooibos tea and take advantage of all its properties
Rooibos has different characteristics that make you feel relaxed before sleeping.
Its magnesium content, which has effects on the nervous system, helps us to relax, calm down and take a deep breath.
In other cultures the tea preparation and ceremony itself already helps to wind down. Heating the water, prepare the rooibos tea in a beautiful cup, and enjoying its wonderful flavour can help to slow down, clear your mind and relax after a busy day.

Rooibos is well known for its pleasant malty and naturally sweet taste – it is just a delicious tea. And in addition to its wonderful flavour and relaxing properties, it has numerous other benefits for our health and wellbeing.
