Carmién Tea is once again pioneering innovative rooibos health technology with their highly beneficial, immune-enhancing Rooibos Powders. Two powders were developed; a fermented Rooibos Powder with added collagen and turmeric, and an unfermented Green Rooibos Powder with echinacea, baobab and moringa. A mouthful of superfoods that can be added to smoothies, shakes, cereals and even used in baking and cooking.
In testing the ORAC (antioxidant capacity) and the total phenolic values of the powders it clearly shows that:
- Green rooibos has almost double the antioxidant value of fermented rooibos powder.
- Both powders show high concentrations of polyphenolic values which add greatly to health.
- Test results are available on request.
Additional superfoods added for increased wellness are: Green Rooibos Powder, Coconut, Hydrolysed Collagen, Echinacea, Boabab, Flaxseed & Moringa and the Rooibos Powder, Hydrolysed Collagen, Cinnamon, Cacao & Turmeric. Superfoods are in a league of their own being highly nutrient-dense and known to re-boot the immune system, boost nutrient levels and restore equilibrium. Multiple tests have proven their exceptional levels of beneficial nutrients.
Worth specific mention is the prominence of hydrolysed collagen which has achieved a strong following that is no longer exclusive to the super health-conscious but understood as an essential part of daily health. Most believe that collagen aids skin health, is anti-aging, and supports strong nail-, hair-, joint- and bone health. Why? Collagen protein is the most abundant structural protein in animals. Collagen is found in connective tissue, skin, tendons, bones, and cartilage. It provides structural support to tissues and plays important roles in cellular processes, including:
- tissue repair
- immune response
- cellular communication and
- cellular migration, a process necessary for tissue maintenance
Connective tissue cells called fibroblasts produce and maintain collagen. As people grow older, their collagen becomes fragmented, fibroblast function becomes impaired, collagen production slows and a key structural protein called elastin is lost (which leads to signs of aging such as skin sagging and wrinkles). These unpleasant truths make it all the more important to supplement our diet with products such as Carmién Rooibos Powders to prevent loss of function and maintain cellular and immune health.
