Rooibos

Revita incorporates the potent botanical rooibos — Afrikaans for “red bush” — since health-conscious westerners have come to discover the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of the herbal tea.

      Often prescribed for digestive problems, nervous tension, and allergies, a recent study demonstrates the potential of rooibos (below) for hair growth as well.

An independent French laboratory researched the effects of the herb on a group of healthy persons suffering from hair loss. The 90-day trial compared a 10-percent rooibos lotion against a placebo, applying 5 ml of the solutions daily.

      When participants were surveyed, 67 percent rated their hair loss as low; 78 percent saw low to medium improvement; 45 percent saw low to medium regrowth; and 63 percent observed that their hair had become smoother and shinier. The overall conclusion was an increase in growth rate, decrease in loss rate, and general improvement in condition.
