Description: Honeybush takes its name from the sweet honey-like smell which the flowers have and which transcend in its slightly sweet flavour. Traditionally, honeybush has been used to treat respiratory illnesses, such as tuberculosis and catarrh. Most notably, its antioxidant properties can strengthen the immune system and thus help fight off illnesses. It is said to slow the ageing process and help to fight cancer cells due to its anti-mutagenic qualities. May aid weight loss by reducing bad cholesterol and fat levels in the blood.
Small amounts of phytoestrogen in honeybush can help to regulate women’s menstrual cycles, reduce menstrual pain and even reduce the risk of osteoporosis. It can also help to stimulate milk production in breast-feeding women.
