Hibiscus Tea - Organic Twist - 24 bags
Hibiscus (Hibiscus sabdariffa) is a small tree with bright red flowers that are rich in flavonoids, minerals, and other nutrients. The flowers have a fruity taste that makes hibiscus popular as both hot and cold tea. Studies have demonstrated that they have a diuretic property and have also found mild blood vessel–dilating effects. Several trials using hibiscus tea have suggested that hibiscus can lower blood pressure in people with hypertension.
Hibiscus flowers might have several components and properties that contribute to its blood pressure–lowering effect. The antioxidants in hibiscus could add to its cardiovascular benefits by protecting blood vessels and heart muscle from oxidative damage. Furthermore, its safety and low potential for causing negative side effects make hibiscus an attractive alternative to antihypertensive medications.
