Cafe Om Now Serving Antioxidant Rich Rooibos Drinks

                                                        Rooibos Tea

Rooibos “red bush” is a naturally caffeine-free herbal plant that grows only in South Africa, in the mountains and valleys of the Cedarberg region near Cape Town.

Rooibos is becoming more popular in Western countries, particularly among health-conscious consumers (like most visitors to Cafe Om), due to its high level of antioxidants such as aspalathin and nothofagin, its lack of caffeine and its low tannin levels compared to fully oxidized black tea or unoxidized green tea leaves. It is purported to assist with nervous tension, allergies and digestive problems.

 

Here’s a summary of the benefits:
•Acts as an antioxidant and increases SOD levels
•Prevents DNA damage
•Cardiovascular protection through ACE inhibition
•Suppresses fasting glucose levels
•Improves glucose uptake and insulin secretion after a meal
•Aids in liver tissue regeneration
•Lowers blood pressure
•Acts as a bronchodilator and antispasmodic
•Inhibits lipid peroxidation and brain aging
•Rooibos extract improves immune defects such as HIV

Did you try Green Tea Matcha blended with almond milk and fresh mint leaf?


Matcha is very nutritious and contains a high level of antioxidants, higher than blueberries and acai berries. Studies have shown matcha to contain amazingly high levels of; amino acids, vitamin c, and catechins. Here are the impressive findings. Studies have confirmed; reduced physical and psychological stress, improved mood and alertness, a boost in the immune system, reduction of bad breath, prevention of some cancers, a reduction of 21% of strokes, promotes oxidation of fats, improvement of metabolism and assists in the stabilization of insulin

WHAT is Matcha?
Matcha is a finely ground and powdered high quality green tea grown in the shaded misty mountains of Japan. It is commonly known for its use in the traditional Tea Ceremony. A few weeks before harvesting, tea bushes are covered to further prevent direct sunlight. The lack of light slows down growth and turns the leaves an even darker shade of green. This step is said to promote the production of amino acids. After harvesting the leaves of highest quality they remain shaded or indoors and laid out flat to dry. The dried leaves will crumble and become known as tencha. Tencha is stone ground to the fine, bright green, talc-like powder known as matcha. Matcha of the highest quality will be a VERY bright green. If the color is slightly brown, yellow or beige it is of poor quality and has oxidized – hence, losing all of its benefits.

Where do I find matcha?

Dandy Blend

Dandy Blend is here at Café Om.

Dandy Blend is the only instant coffee alternative in the United States that contains dandelion root. Dandelion root is what makes Dandy Blend unique and so much better that it stands out from all other options available. Dandelion may be considered a weed, but all over the world it is a valued vegetable and highly respected herbal medicine. It is one of the top six herbs in the Chinese medicine chest.

  • It tastes remarkably like a rich, full-bodied cup of coffee
  • It is caffeine free, and has no acidity or bitterness.  It is the only herbal coffee substitute in the US that features both the health benefits of dandelion root and the rich, full-bodied flavor, smoothness and texture of real coffee. Many say that, because it lacks bitterness and acidity, it actually tastes better than coffee.
  • It is made of water-soluble extracts of roasted roots of dandelion, chicory and beets, and the grains of barley and rye. Nothing else is added. While we make no claims for Dandy Blend other than that it is a delicious herbal beverage with the taste, body, and texture of coffee, the ingredients – dandelion, chicory and beet roots, and barley and rye grains – are all health-promoting foods respected throughout the world.
  • It contains no gluten. Gluten, which is comprised of proteins that are not water-soluble, is left behind in the grounds to be composted during the extracting process, leaving Dandy Blend gluten-free. 
  • The sweetness some perceive in Dandy Blend is primarily from the fructose that occurs naturally in the roots of dandelion and chicory. Many people require no additional sweeteners. 
  • It contains over 50 trace minerals in each cup, most of which the body uses to help synthesize compounds needed in metabolism. 
  • There are no headaches or other withdrawal symptoms when switching from coffee to Dandy Blend. It is like switching from one brand of coffee to another. Most people generally can’t tell that they aren’t drinking coffee. 

If your doctor or health practitioner has recommended that you give up coffee, and/or add dandelion to your diet, Dandy Blend is by far the easiest way to do that AND still continue enjoying the flavor and texture of a good “cuppa joe” at the same time.
