in North America. "The trial appears to confirm the anecdotal promise for rooibos in fighting heart disease and reducing oxidative stress in humans. As a result, we expect a huge boost in the worldwide consumption of rooibos in the coming years."

The research was conducted at the following South African institutions: Cape Peninsula University of Technology and the University of Cape Town. Funding was provided by Cape Peninsula University of Technology, THRIP National Research Foundation, and the South African Rooibos Council.

Note: The American Botanical Council advises that with all scientific and clinical research that has yet to be published in a peer-reviewed journal, the preliminary announcement of trial results and related statistics may eventually be modified as a result of the peer review process. Thus, some of the data reported in this news release are subject to revision upon publication of this trial.

About Rooibos

Rooibos (Aspalanthus linearis) in the pea family (Fabaceae) is a popular beverage from South Africa. The name comes from the local Afrikaans name for "red bush," referring to the red-auburn color of the plant material, which changes after it is harvested and allowed to ferment. The pleasant-tasting red-colored beverage is high in antioxidant compounds, which have been shown to be beneficial for cardiovascular health, among other benefits. Rooibos does not contain any natural levels of caffeine. A comprehensive review of the history and scientific publications of rooibos was published in the American Botanical Council's quarterly journal, HerbalGram (issue #59) (http://cms.herbalgram.org/herbalgram/issue59/article2550.html) in 2003.
