Looking and feeling your best means nourishing your body inside and out. That includes skincare.
Annique is the first health and beauty company in the world to use Rooibos extract in its skin- and health care products, boasting several advantages:
- Antioxidant; and
- No caffeine and very low tannin from pure Rooibos leaves.
Dr Jeanine Marnewick of the Cape Peninsula University of Technology’s Medical Research Council (MRC) PROMEC unit said, “We have been investigating the effect of Rooibos on various kinds of cancer for years and have been able to prove the benefits of Rooibos in preventing or slowing down different kinds of cancer”.
Her team researched the effects of six cups of Rooibos tea taken a day, for six weeks, by healthy volunteers. She has seen that Rooibos elevated blood glutathione, the body’s own “super antioxidant”, by 100%. Glutathione reduces the risk of cancer (and also possibly other lifestyle diseases).
