I have pre-diabetes and dawn phenomenon. Besides being on a healthy Mediterranean Diet and exercise, I finally found something that works for me.
In the evening I drink 1 cup of organic red Rooibos tea. I buy it on Amazon.com, get a 80 tea bag box. I also like the taste of the Red So. African Rooibos tea.
Love red rooibos tea. I drink a cup every night an hour after dinner as it truly does help me get to sleep.
Rooibos Side Effects
Rooibos - no not for me. I had a stomach ache and bad nausea after drinking it. Maybe it was a bad brand but I will never try it again.
Hello! I love rooibos tea. Drink it once a day in the afternoon. I steep it for at least 5 minutes, then drink slowly. It makes my skin smooth. Loooove this herbal tea.
Rooibos tea is so calming and relaxing. Other teas, even the caffeine free herbal types can make me jittery but Rooibos just calms me down almost immediately. I tend to put 2-3 tea bags in a cup at a time, and I have 2-3 cups when I need to be extra relaxed and have a great night's sleep. A true miracle product! Rooibos tea and magnesium are the best in calming a hyperactive nervous system.
Diabetics may want to look into Rooibos as well for reduction of diabetic symptoms. Lab studies have shown the tea to have positive effects on both hypoglycemia and in reducing the negative effects of high blood sugar levels.
Rooibos tea leaves are promoted as an acne treatment with both internal and external usage reducing the prevalence of acne outbreaks. Similarly, it is sometimes used to treat psoriasis, diaper rash, general dermatitis, and other skin conditions where inflammation can be a central issue.
