Why red tea is better than green tea

Rooibos tea

By Elizabeth (Liz) Swann Miller

Green tea has long been acknowledged for its health and wellness benefits, including weight loss assistance.

The evidence is irrefutable.


Are we overlooking something better?

It is true that green tea contains powerful antioxidants. These components contribute to minimizing health risks such as cancer and cardiovascular disease.

I am about to reveal how green tea, although beneficial, is gradually losing value in the light of its delicious rival – rooibos.

Rooibos, also known as red tea, is equally high in antioxidants but sourced from different substances to that of green tea.

The antioxidants contained in rooibos – aspalathin and nothofagin – are comparatively rare, and help to regulate blood sugar, reduce excessive fat production, stress, and inhibit metabolic disorders.

After the results of recent studies related to the major players in sustainable weight loss, red tea is considered essential.

In addition to preventing heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and more, it is an accessible and effective answer to weight gain.

Rooibos means red bush. The plant is readily available, with leaves that turn red upon fermentation.

With so much potential to assist with our health and wellness journeys, it is wrong to ignore the strength of the plant.

Unlike green tea, red tea does not contain caffeine, and therefore drinking red tea at night won’t leave you restless.

Another factor of its ultimate superiority is simply the taste. The bitterness of green tea is often attributed to its high tannin content, which is less prevalent in red tea.

Liz Swann Miller created a recipe, which is featured in the Red Tea Detox program, that combines rooibos with a specific blend, working to melt fat.
