I was wondering if anyone else has had success with Rooibus tea. I first got some because it was said to help with allergies, an dsince it's caffine-free and loaded with anti-oxidents it's supposed to be beneficial overall. I had been unimpressed with it until a few days ago when my body was on a sleepless marathon and I hadn't been able to sleep in two days, and wasn't the least bit tired. I had the notion to make a very strong cup of Rooibus tea to drink as I was using the computer for a distraction, and I was amazed at how quickly my body relaxed and soon the only thing I wanted to do was lay down and rest. And unlike the typical crash, resting actually felt good! I've since read that Rooibus is said to relieve nervous tension, so it looks liek that's what it did. It was not like a sedative--it did not put me to sleep right away or anything, it just made it possible for my body to relax enough for resting to be a pleasant experience. After about an hour I was asleep. I've tried a lot of herbs for muscle relaxants and sedative properties, but this is the one I'm most excited aobut. My experience with muscle relaxants is that they relaly help a lot at first, but then result in tenser muscles. And sedatives tend to make me sleepy even while resting is a painful or stressful experience. So far it doesn't appear to me that Rooibus causes either of these problems, which is exciting to me. Now I'm going to experiment with having some every night, to see if it will help me acheive a normal sleep schedule (along with the rest of the bag of tricks I utilize). Has anyone else tried Rooibus? What are your thoughts?
