If you have you been diagnosed with pre-hypertension or have mild hypertension you are going to love this hibiscus tea, better yet– you are going to love the benefits even more.
Even if you don’t have high blood pressure, there is nothing wrong with preventing it from developing it to begin with –don’t you think?
High blood pressure “runs in my family’, so I have adapted lifestyle changes to prevent that from happening as much as I possible. With that being said, recent studies have shown that blood pressure is the end result of poor lifestyle choices.
One of the main ways to stay on top of this is by having your cardiologist or PCP run these two crucial tests every couple of years, in order to assess your risk of Cardiovascular disease (CVD). They help assess your risk of Cardiovascular disease. I try drink Hibiscus tea mainly during the summer-chilled. That being said, there is nothing wrong a warm cup of comforting-healing tea in the winter. Add some raw honey, and we are in business.
Now, what does this flower have to do with lowering blood pressure? I am happy you asked…
How Hibiscus Tea Consumption Relates to Blood Pressure
In vitro studies show Hibiscus sabdariffa L., an ingredient found in many herbal tea blends and other beverages has antioxidant properties, and, in animal models, extracts of its calyces have demonstrated hypocholesterolemic and antihypertensive properties.
In this study, their objective was to examine the antihypertensive effects of H. sabdariffa tisane (hibiscus tea) consumption in humans.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial was conducted in 65 pre- and mildly hypertensive adults, age 30-70 y, not taking blood pressure (BP)-lowering medications, with either 3 240-mL servings/d of brewed hibiscus tea or placebo beverage for 6 wk. A standardized method was used to measure BP at baseline and weekly intervals. At 6 wk, hibiscus tea lowered systolic BP (SBP) compared with placebo.
These results suggest daily consumption of hibiscus tea, in an amount readily incorporated into the diet, lowers BP in pre- and mildly hypertensive adults and may prove an effective component of the dietary changes recommended for people with these conditions.
How great is this? An inexpensive way to prevent and lower blood pressure without medications. Yes, the study says pre and mildly hypertensive adults. However, Dr. Diane L. McKay at the Annual Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association conducted a trial study where subjects drank three cups of hibiscus tea daily for six weeks, which reduced their systolic blood pressure by 7 mm systolic, 3mm diastolic and 4mm overall arterial pressure.
That is pretty compelling evidence of the benefits of hibiscus tea. Don’t you think?
