Seven reasons to start drinking Sobacha

4 Feb
Though Sobacha is very popular in Japan and Southeast Asia, you might not be familiar with this nutty, moreish herbal infusion. If you’re into Japanese food, you probably will have tried the delicious soba noodles (great with vegetables and soy sauce!). Soba is the Japanese word for buckwheat, a gluten-free whole grain related to rhubarb and with no relation to wheat, and Sobacha is the herbal tea made with roasted buckwheat. But why is it so good for you?
  1. Sobacha helps regulate blood sugar levels, so it’s perfect to make you feel fuller for longer and to banish the four o’clock slump.
  2. The roasted nibs are high in fibre that helps flush away toxines, therefore improving your digestion.
  3. Sobacha contains potassium, which regulates water balance in the body. Drinking it regularly can help alleviate water retemption, an easy way to feel slimmer and healthier.
  4. That feelgood factor! Sobacha is rich in Vitamin B, a natural mood enhancer. Perhaps that’s why it’s so comforting!
  5. Sobacha contains antioxidants to protect your body from the inside and give you a healthy glow.
  6. Zinc in Sobacha promotes a healthy complexion, improves stress levels and supports the immune system, so it’s a great caffeine-free alternative if you’re feeling under the weather.
  7. Sobacha contains copper, which contributes to control cholesterol levels and fights anemia.
