FSS Rooibos Tea Extract G


Preserved with Leucidal Liquid

FSS Rooibos Tea refers to the tea made from the leaves and stems of the plant Aspalathus linearis, believed to occur naturally only in South Africa. The Rooibos plant produces small yellow pea shaped flowers during October. The flowers each produce a single seed.

The uses of FSS Rooibos Tea seem reasonable considering the basic composition. Rooibos tea is relatively rich in the minerals calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, fluoride, and copper.

There is a range of anti-oxidants from vitamin C to Flavonoglycosides and Superoxide Dismutase (SOD).

Rooibos tea is often claimed to be as potent as green tea in terms of antioxidant (AO) activity.

Generally the AO activity of Rooibos tea increases with brewing time indicating that the activity is most likely due to hydrolysis of the Flavonoglycosides, particularly the quercetin glucoside. All this points to a good role for general anti-aging claims. In terms of other cosmetic claims, FSS Rooibos Tea is recommended to tighten skin, remove blemishes, and reduce irritation.
