Red Rooibos for Breastfeeding

Rooibos tea has many health benefits for nursing and pregnant women. It is naturally high in Vitamin C–great for boosting your immune system when it may be suppressed due to pregnancy or sleepless nights with an infant. It is also known to help soothe colicky babies and upset stomachs–yes, even through your milk! We love rooibos tea!

Red Rooibos Tea Nutrition Facts

Red rooibos tea has no oxalic acid and therefore, it can be consumed by people who have kidney stones. Rooibos tea is rich in many minerals such as iron, calcium, potassium, copper, manganese, zinc, magnesium, and alpha hydroxy acid. It also contains antioxidants like aspalathin and nothofagin and extremely potent and versatile phenolic compounds, as well as rare nutrients like quercetin and bioflavonoids that assist in good blood circulation and also obstruct hemorrhaging.

Precautions

Despite all of these health benefits of rooibos tea, there can be a downside for some people. Since rooibos is so powerful, it can interfere with treatments for various conditions, including chemotherapy for cancer patients. Also, rooibos has shown estrogenic activities in certain studies, so it might not be a good idea to use if you have hormone-sensitive cancer like breast cancer. Finally, if you have any existing kidney or liver conditions, rooibos might be more harmful than helpful. It should be used as a preventive measure for these conditions, not as a cure. Make sure you speak to your doctor before adding any new dietary elements or beverages to your normal routine, particularly something as powerful as rooibos tea!
