If you know a thing or two about rooibos, the locally grown tea that comes from the red bush plant, you know that it packs a range of health benefits. Studies have proven that this phenomenal tea helps just about everything, from insomnia and nagging headaches, to hypertension and bone weakness.

Now, according to new research, rooibos tea has weight loss benefits, too. It's time to give up coffee and replace your morning cuppa with a steaming cup of rooibos tea. If you do, research shows that you could drop as much as one kilo from the scale a month!

How replacing coffee with rooibos tea can help you lose weight fast

Admit it – most of us enjoy our coffee with milk, sugar, syrups and whipped cream. While this is delicious, it’s full of calories – I’m talking anything from 35 to more than 250 calories per cup! When you consider that the average South African drinks four cups of coffee in an average day, it’s easy to understand that these calories quickly add up.
On the other hand, if you replace coffee with rooibos tea, you can cut calories drastically. Research confirms that you could realistically lose between 7 kg and 14 kg in just one year! That’s right... you can drop up to 14 kg by simply swapping out coffee for rooibos tea. And the best part is that the indigenous tea promotes sustainable, enjoyable and totally healthy weight loss.

Here’s the plain truth. Diets alone don’t work.
How many diets have you been on, weight loss pills you’ve consumed, injections you’ve had to endure? You might have lost some weight but it’s probably all back on again…
The truth is that there is no magic solution to make the weight drop off.
The secret to successful weight loss isn’t starving yourself nor is it limiting your food choices or following a painful pattern of eating.
Find out the key to what you’re doing that’s preventing you from losing those extra kilos here.
Ernest du Toit, the SA Rooibos Council’s spokesperson, told Health24: “Rooibos tea contains no fat or carbohydrates and its weight-loss properties further extends to inhibiting fat-storage hormones within the body. Rooibos’s unique Bioflavonoid, Aspalathin, helps to reduce stress hormones that trigger hunger and fat storage, typically associated with high blood pressure, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes. In a nutshell, rooibos tea can prevent the body from storing and even forming new fat cells.”
“Rooibos tea is also caffeine-free and naturally sweet so there’s no need to add extra sugar. Plus it comes in a variety of flavours like berry, cinnamon, mint and citrus. It’s also 100% natural with no additives, no preservatives and no chemicals,” du Toit added.

Rooibos tea can also help prevent cancer, liver damage, digestive disorders and more

Of course, the health benefits of drinking rooibos tea every day don’t stop at weight loss. If it did, celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Cindy Crawford and Catherine Zeta Jones wouldn’t rave about it the way they do!
According to research, rooibos tea can also help prevent cancer, protect your liver against disease, treat digestive disorders, boost your immune system and relieve allergies.
So how much rooibos tea should you drink to reap its weight loss and other health benefits? The experts say up to six  cups a day, along with a healthy, balanced diet is ideal. Whether you drink it hot or cold, knocking back six cups of rooibos tea a day will provide you with the maximum weight loss and health benefits that it can offer. Pinkies up!
