Honeybush is a traditional health tea with powerful anti-oxidant activity. Mangiferin is the major constituent and studies have shown antimutagenic, anticarcinogenic and oestrogen activity. Phytoestrogens are plant compounds that bind to oestrogen receptors in the body and research suggests that they could help relieve menopausal symptoms and protect women against cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis post menopause. It was traditionally used for its positive effect on the urinary system and to aid digestion. Make a pot in the morning and keep topping up during the course of the day. Also makes a soothing iced tea.
