Details

Hibiscus is a sweet but tart liquid that many find refreshing whether it’s prepared hot or cold. It’s often combined with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg and enjoyed warm at holiday times in some areas. This refreshing tea can be sweetened with sugar or honey, but many people feel that the tea is sweet enough to drink without any additives. Many types of herbal tea combine hibiscus with other ingredients, such as rose hips or mint.

Lowering Blood Pressure Levels

Numerous studies have shown that drinking tea from hibiscus helps lower blood pressure levels. In a study published in the 2009 issue of Internal Medicine News, 65 individuals suffering from pre-hypertension or hypertension took part in a 6-week double-blind study. Half the group drank 3 cups of tea made from hibiscus flowers daily while the control group consumed a placebo. At the end of the study, the group drinking the tea experienced a drop in systolic blood pressure by 7.2mm Hg whereas the placebo group experienced a 1.3 mm Hg decline. Experts state that even a 3 mm drop in systolic blood pressure reduces the risk of death due to stroke by 8% and death due to coronary artery disease by 5%.

 

Lowering Cholesterol Levels

This floral tea has also been shown to lower cholesterol levels in the blood, helping to reduce the risk of heart disease. A report in the Journal of Science of Food Agriculture stated that extracts from the Hibiscus flower was shown to significantly lower the cholesterol content found in the blood serum of lab animals, as well as successfully preventing oxidation of low-density liboprotein. Lowering cholesterol levels can reduce the risk of coronary artery disease; specifically low-density liboprotein (LDL), or “bad” cholesterol.

 

Benefits for Diabetic Individuals

Lowering LDL cholesterol and blood pressure levels are extremely beneficial to individuals suffering with type 2 diabetes. A study published in the 2009 issue of The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, 60 diabetes patients were given either tea made from hibiscus flowers or black tea to drink twice a day for a period of 30 days. When the study was completed, it was found that the group drinking the tea with hibiscus experienced a significant decrease in LDL cholesterol and a significant increase in HDL, or “good,” cholesterol levels. Additional studies have shown that this tea may help lower blood pressure in individuals suffering from type 2 diabetes.

 

Fighting Cancer and Boosting the Immune System

Because tea made from hibiscus flowers contains antioxidants called anthocyanins, it may help reduce the risk of cancer. Antioxidants like these fight off free radicals and cells that may be pre-cancerous. At the cellular level, each individual experiences an “oxidation process,” which allows free radicals to roam throughout the body. Free radicals can sometimes damage cells, causing the body to be more prone to develop certain types of cancer. Free radicals also speed up the process of aging by causing the breakdown of collagen and other problems. Antioxidants fight free radicals and are also important in keeping the immune system healthy and strong, and in fighting the signs of aging.

Refreshing Review by Michele R.

This is a very bright, almost citrusy cup. Very refreshing. (Posted on 1/20/2018)
Great fruity flavorReview by Thomas

Great fruity flavor. I am liking this tea more and more as I drink it. It took me a while to get the proportions right for my taste (I am still playing around with how much to use). While the descriptions liken it to lemonade, it reminds me more of cranberry juice. I like it iced as well as hot, in fact, I have started keeping a pitcher in the fridge for when I want to get a quick drink. (Posted on 1/8/2018)

I have just started to use this produce to try and help with heart and blood sugars. Can not say as of yet if it is helping with that. I can state that it is very tasty. Can stand on it's own for flavor, but I have been mixing it with Honeybush Cider from here (Posted on 1/5/2018)
Sweet and SafeReview by Kyle Sharp

I decided to try this when I realized that I was probably gonna be fighting a losing battle with heart problems within the next few years, since it is supposed to be good for that. I was surprised when I tried it that I actually like the taste! I now try to give this to all my friends to try, and most of them love it too! (Posted on 4/27/2016)
