Soothes al­ler­gies + sta­bi­lizes blood sugar

First For Women - - Health -

If fall al­ler­gies have you snif­fling and sneez­ing, Ja­panese sci­en­tists of­fer a tasty Rx: sip­ping 36 oz. of fruity rooi­bos tea daily, which eases symp­toms in as lit­tle as 72 hours. The credit goes to the sip’s flavonoids, which dampen the im­mune sys­tem’s pro­duc­tion of symp­tom-trig­ger­ing his­tamine. Bonus: Ac­cord­ing to a re­search team in South Africa, rooi­bos is rich in as­palathin, a phy­tonu­tri­ent that slows carb ab­sorp­tion and helps mus­cle cells soak up and burn glu­cose for fuel, im­prov­ing blood-sugar con­trol in one week.
