Health Benefits

The health attributes of Honeybush have been known to the indigenous peoples in South Africa for centuries, and the herb has been drunk as a brewed tea for many years.

Honeybush contains many minerals essential to human health, including Iron, Potassium, Calcium and Manganese. These are vital in fluid balance,  bone growth and repair, and prevention of anemia.

Honeybush contains anti-oxidants, which counter the effects of oxidative stress, and prevent the production of free radicals. Free radicals exert harmful effects on the body, and weaken the body’s natural defenses.

Numerous studies have been undertaken into Honeybush. The most recent Animal study confirmed that feeding a Honeybush brew to diabetic rodents lowered blood sugar and cholesterol dramatically.

The researchers concluded:

  • “statistically significant reduction in Fasting Blood Glucose “
  • “statistically significant reduction in intravenous glucose tolerance”
  • “statistically significant reduction in Total Cholesterol “

Phyto-estrogens, present in Honeybush, as in many other plants such as Soy and Black Cohosh, may be useful in the natural control of menopausal symptoms in women.

Honeybush is often used to increase milk production in nursing mothers, and to relieve colic in infants and babies.

The Pinitol in Honeybush tea makes it popular as  cough expectorant and herbal aid for colds and flu.
