Loose weight AND grow boobs!

Loose weight and grow boobs?

Thought that might get your attention [Image: biggrin.gif]
 
Heard of Rooibos Tea? 
 
Yup, that funny red tea that doesn't quite taste like tea, normally tucked away in the corner of the herbals shelf gathering dust.  Well, it's been around for years (my Mum was drinking it 20+ years ago) and for those in the know it has been a regular brew and famed for its healthful qualities.  But somehow it kinda never really got onto the general radar.  Well it's making waves now!
 
It's good for limiting fat absorption, diabetes control, it's a strong antioxidant, reduces stress, and so on and so on.......  Yeh, heard all this before I hear you say.  Bring on the next "super food" fad (you cynic you[Image: wink.gif]).         
 
Except that this time there are multiple clinical studies which are showing real results in reducing fat accumulation within cells, and even inhibiting the formation of new fat cells by as much as 22 percent.

It is being shown to reduce the levels of and help with balancing blood glucose, which also helps with weight reduction and diabetes control.  

And... one of the warnings given against prolonged consumption of Rooibos it that has been shown to have an estrogenic effect.  When I read that, it made me do a double take too!
 
Studies are so far are concentrating on the three main compounds. Aspalathin, Quercetin, and Nothofagin.   I know Quercetin has popped up on our radar before as being useful to us and apparently Rooibos is bursting with the stuff!   
 
I was going to include a bunch of links, but Google is loaded with info, and links to the clinical studies come up pretty quickly.  And I am sure you have your own favourite resources to go to for research anyway.  But thought this link was a nice introduction to the subject.

Another curiosity about the Roo is that it only grows in South Africa and even then, only in a comparatively small area.  But it has been around for ages so there should be little trouble getting some where you are.  The only question then is the quality of the source and how high are the concentrations of the compounds we are interested in.  But that is always the catch with going natural isn't it? 
 
By sheer coincidence, I have a friend flying out to South Africa today.  And I have asked him to find out what he can for me.  Going right to the source will hopefully mean I can get my hands on some of the good stuff too!

Can slow down the effects of estrogens being cleaned from your blood by the liver ..
( Grapefruit can also do this ..)
From my own bloodwork, slowing down the livers removal or estrogen from my blood ( via Cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) ? ))
Raised my estrogen blood levels at least 4 fold.

Oh my. As a tea drinker, this is good news! I have come across some roobios during my tea shopping and never though twice about it. Looks like I'll be adding a new tea to my collection!

Hiya

As I look into this more, it just seems to get better!  Multiple health benefits and with a nice NBE twist too.  

But as with so many of these things it is getting the quality right that makes the difference.  Common sense tells you that a mass produced product that has sat on a supermarket shelf will probably have less active ingredients than something that has been specifically processed to maximize health effects, rather than shelf life and taste.  

Also, there are two basic forms Rooibos come in.  Red (the more popular) and green.  Each have different properties and taste.          

As I gather more definitive info I will let you all know.[Image: biggrin.gif]
