Health Benefits of Hibiscus Tea:

 

Manages Blood Pressure

A American Heart Association report, published in November 2008, states that drinking hibiscus tea lowers the blood pressure in pre-hypertensive and mildly hypertensive adults. A study conducted by Odigie IP suggests that hibiscus tea has anti hypertensive and cardioprotective properties, which can help people suffering from hypertension and at high risks of cardiovascular diseases. 

Because of its anti inflammatory properties, hibiscus tea can reduce blood pressure by up to 10 points, according to a research done at Tufts University in Boston. However, for this drastic improvement to occur, one has to regularly consume uptp three cups of this tea every day for a few weeks. Hibiscus tea also has diuretic properties that increase urination and simultaneously lower blood pressure.

 

Weight Loss

Hibiscus herbal tea is also used for weight loss. Consumption of food rich in carbohydrates has been attributed to weight gain. However, research has suggested that hibiscus extract lowers the absorption of starch and glucose and may help in weight loss. 

Hibiscus inhibits the production of amylase, which helps in the absorption of carbohydrates and starch, so drinking it prevents the absorption from occurring.

 

Lowers Cholesterol

Hibiscus tea helps to lower the levels of LDL cholesterol, thereby helping protect against heart diseases and preventing damage to blood vessels. The hypolipidemic and hypoglycemic properties of hibiscus tea can benefit those who suffer from blood sugar disorders like diabetes.

research study conducted on patients with type II diabetes suggests that consumption of hibiscus tea lowers cholesterol, triglycerides, and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, which helps to manage this unpredictable disease.
