The Inside Scoop on the NEW and IMPROVED Rooibos Lifestyle Shake 500g (30 Day Supply)

Annique’s Rooibos Lifestyle Shake is a firm favourite amongst thousands of Consultants and Clients. Did you know it was the very first product Annique launched back in 1971 when the business started? And until today it is one of our top sellers.

We have received countless testimonials over the years on how the Lifestyle Shake has improved people’s lives for the better, from healthy weight loss to a healthy snack for growing kids and how it has helped the elderly and others to recover from illness.

There have been several new developments and technological advancements in the health supplement space in recent years, paving the way for the development of a new, improved Annique Rooibos Lifestyle Shake. The South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) also established new rules with recommendations for the minimum and maximum dosages for ingredients providing the opportunity to include more of some essential ingredients in the new formula.

Annique’s new and improved Rooibos Lifestyle Shake is a premium supplement that has a special blend of components to help replace and maintain your body’s nutrient levels.


This incredible new formulation now contains:

  • 54% less carbohydrates
  • More protein and good fats, for sustainable energy
