There is evidence that the phenolic compounds in honeybush are able to reduce inflammation and prevent the development of chronic inflammatory diseases. Phenolic compounds have a direct effect on down-regulating the body’s inflammatory response. This makes honeybush extract effective in providing inflammatory relief to skin flare ups and irritation caused by conditions like psoriasis and eczema.
Improves the Immune System
Honeybush is a natural source of many antioxidants, including major phenolic compounds. Phenolic compounds play a significant role in protecting the immune system from oxidative stress, which could damage cells, according to a 2013 review published in “Nutrients.” Phenolic compounds also modulate the immune system, which helps the body’s natural defenses against infections.
