Healthy Hibiscus

 

 

 

The World Health Organisation defines hypertension as blood pressure higher than 140/90. An ordinary condition in the developed world affecting roughly 20% of adults.

 

People with high blood pressure generally do not experience any symptoms and are not aware that their blood pressure is high. Hypertension can lead to worrying health troubles such as heart failure and strokes.

 

It is said that blood pressure can be lowered by drinking an extract of Hibiscus flower each day, in the form of tea. Hibiscus tea consists of high levels of antioxidants, such as flavonoids, which are excellent for our bodies and hearts. These antioxidants help our bodies resist the harmful molecules known as free radicals, which can cause cell damage, leaving the body in a sick condition. By taming free radicals, antioxidants help look after the health of the body.

 

Hibiscus tea can successfully contribute to the weight loss process without making you tired, dizzy or ill. Most people are not familiar with the wonderful weight loss qualities of Hibiscus tea.

 

The effects of this flower on weight are better if consumed in a natural form rather than processed forms like powders or capsules.

 

Hibiscus makes a very pleasant red, rose or pink tea, tasting tart and refreshing. It is popular both hot or iced, and is very often blended with rose hips to make a rich colored antioxidant tea. You can make the tea by soaking the dried or fresh flowers in hot water, straining and then adding sugar, if needed.
