The bright red tea extracted from the Egyptian hibiscus flowers are becoming an increasingly popular drink around the world. The robust colour, floral aroma, with a slightly sweet but mostly tangy taste, is indeed an attractive combination for the tea lovers. But what’s drawing people towards this miraculous red herb is the multiple health benefits that you can derive from a single cup of tea. From the ancient times, these flowers have been known to be good for blood circulation. With our modern medicinal research, that would mean keeping the blood pressure under control. For those suffering from high blood pressure can greatly benefit from hibiscus tea. A daily serving of as little as 8 ounces of Egyptian Hibiscus Tea can help reduce your blood pressure levels and calm your nerves. It also helps lower cholesterol levels. Since both blood pressure and bad cholesterol pose a threat to one’s cardio-vascular conditions, considering a daily intake of Egyptian Hibiscus Tea can keep the pressure in check. Thus minimizing further risks
Recent botanical research has revealed that hibiscus flowers are rich in anthocyanin- a naturally available chemical that works on the blood pressure level of the human body. In fact, evidence of the same can be found in the naturopathy practice in Iran.
In a 2010 study, published in the Journal of Nutrition, it was found that consuming hibiscus tea can lower blood pressure levels among patients who are prone to high pressure or already have mild high pressure. The participants of the study were served three 8 ounce servings of hibiscus teaand a placebo, daily for 6 weeks. Those who consumed hibiscus tea had a significant drop in their systolic blood pressure in comparison to those who took the placebo. Furthermore, a meta-analysis of studies published in 2015 found that drinking hibiscus tea can also lower the diastolic blood pressure in patients.
