Lower blood pressure with this tea…

Apart from looking good in the garden, the benefits of drinking Hibiscus tea can lower your blood pressure as effectively as some medications…

This is a tea that I drink regularly – because it tastes good – but I didn’t know about this positive effect!

Dr. Diane McKay of the Jean Mayer USDA Nutrition Research Center on Aging, Tufts University Boston, MA, reported to the American Heart Association in 2008 the results of her study on the use of hibiscus tea to lower high blood pressure. This was a randomized, double blind placebo controlled trial.

Participants consumed 3 cups of hibiscus tea daily for 6 weeks versus a group that consumed a placebo beverage. The trial included 65 men and women aged 30 to 70 whose blood pressure ranged from 120-150 systolic and less than 95 diastolic. See my earlier post for an explanation of systolic and diastolic measurements.

None of the subjects were on high blood pressure medications.

You can see the results in the full article, on the Natural News website.
