Hibiscus Recipe For Iced Tea – Natural Remedy For High Blood Pressure

This post is devoted to the Hibiscus recipe for iced tea. Hibiscus Tea sometimes referred to as Roselle or sour tea, has long been said to have many health benefits, especially for hypertension.

This has been proven in several clinical studies.

Clinical Studies Involving Use Of Hibiscus Flower Recipe

One of these clinical studies involved 75 people who had been diagnosed with hypertension who were not taking any blood pressure medications at the time of the trial.

This group of people were given a hibiscus flower recipe as treatment. They were asked to drink one large tea every day before breakfast for 4 weeks.

The results were impressive.

On average the group saw a reduction of 11% systolic and 12.5% diastolic blood pressure.

Putting that into comparison, the results of those taking the Hibiscus Recipe treatment were equal to another group who were being administered with daily pharmaceuticals (50 mg of Captopril) over the exact time frame.

How To Use This Recipe To Treat High Blood Pressure!

As a rule, when making Hibiscus Tea, you need to use one gram of dried calyx in the preparation.

Ideally you should take this tea twice per day.

Once in the morning and once in the evening, ensuring you leave at least 8 hours between each.

Alternatively, supplements are also an option. If you do use supplements they should be chosen according to their anthocyanin content.

Alternatively if you do not want to use a supplement or make your own tea then there is an alternative. You can buy prepackages teabags. My favorite are those in this link for prepackaged teabags.

I must recommend the recipe. there is nothing better than making your own tea. It’s easy, it’s simple and it’s absolutely delicious. And extremely effective for those wishing to treat high blood pressure naturally.

It is important to note that Hibiscus Tea may affect estrogen levels. Therefore if you, or someone you know, is trying to become pregnant or are already pregnant, it is recommended that you avoid adding hibiscus to your diet, or at least discuss with your doctor if the deliciousness of this tea is too much.

As this is a remedy known to help those suffering with high blood pressure, it makes sense to note that this means it may also lower blood pressure. So not recommended for those with low blood pressure.
