IT MAKES perfect sense for the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa) to team up with Unilever’s Glen Rooibos Tea with the many well-researched health benefits that Rooibos provides.
Recently Glen Rooibos Tea became Cansa’s official rooibos tea supplier. This will see the tea being supplied to Cansa’s 30 care centres that include 11 care homes and other facilities. Glen Rooibos Tea will also be the official supplier for this year’s Cuppa For Cansa campaign.
Says Cansa CEO Elize Joubert: “We know the risk of between 30% and 40% of cancers may be reduced through lifestyle factors including diet and exercise. Cansa officially recognises rooibos as a source that may reduce risk.
“We are fortunate that rooibos is indigenous to South Africa, making it affordable and easily accessible.”
