Description

Honeybush Tea is extracted from a medicinal flowering plant called Cyclopia.

Honeybush tea contains xanthones and flavanones, biologically active chemical compounds with a range of health benefits attributed to them. The xanthones contained in Honeybush tea are a rich source of antioxidants which possess anti-inflammatory benefits and anti-bacterial and cancer-fighting properties that improve skin health [1].

Research has showed that the polyphenols (naturally occurring organic compounds) found in Honeybush Tea may help prevent, manage and treat type 2 diabetes [2]. They lower blood sugar levels by promoting the regeneration of damaged pancreatic cells and encouraging insulin secretion.
