Paul from Vondis Holistic Pet Nutrition discusses the benefits of Rooibos on SmileFM

What can Rooibos do for your pets and can you enjoy high-tea with your furry friend. Paul from Vondis Holistic Pet Nutrition discusses the benefits of Rooibos on Smile FM radio. Looking at JM, radio presenter, I would be convinced that he is a Rooibos drinker. He has a great silky glossy head of hair (or should be call it a coat of hair). He asked me if he could share his Rooibos tea with Jake, his beloved companion animal. Of course he can!

There are so many legendary health properties to Rooibos Tea that it has taken the world by storm. Rooibos is proudly South African and right on our doorstep and because it’s packed with many antioxidants and minerals, Rooibos (“red bush”) tea is extremely healthy. It promotes healthier skin, mainly because of its high concentration of Zinc and Vitamin D. Thus, when we treat our companion’s skin and allergy problems, Rooibos is one of my preferred remedies.

Used internally or externally, you are sure to see an improvement with your pet’s skin and coat. Rooibos tea as it relates to healthy skin is hypoallergenic and antibacterial and it can treat and alleviate bacterial infections on the skin. Rooibos Tea is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Another one of Rooibos Tea’s benefits is that it includes powerful antioxidants. This boosts the immune system and fights free radicals. Immunity is everything and healthy pets are less likely to be affected by virus, bacteria, parasites and allergens. Whether you include Rooibos Tea in your pet’s water and food or soak them in a Rooibos bath, South Africa’s own wonder bush is there to serve you and your pet.
