The Rooibos story

Beryl Shuttleworth, the owner of The Herbal Horse and Pet, and Robin Louw became friends through their love of horses. They have, through the years, exchanged information back and forth about horses and herbs and many other things.

Robyn’s uncle has a Rooibos farm. So, as Rooibos is such an amazing healing herb, Beryl and Robyn have decided to collaborate on a new project – bringing this red bush, with its amazing health benefits, to the animal world.


A natural horse and pet supplement containing 100% dried Rooibos leaves

Rooibos contains a wide range of flavonoids, including Aspalathin, unique to Rooibos. These flavonoids and other components of Rooibos have been shown to have many health advantages.

Flavonoids support the body’s defences as potent antioxidants (free radical scavengers), protecting cells from free radical damage during oxidative stress.
