Hibiscus tea: healthy enjoyment

Whether hot or cold: hibiscus tea is a delicious drink in every season. But it not only flatters our palate with its sweet and sour taste, it is also brimming with healthy ingredients such as vitamin C and strengthens the immune system. Research into whether hibiscus tea can lower blood pressure has been going on for some time.

Study examines effect of hibiscus tea on blood pressure

In a new comparative study, scientists have now evaluated and summarized the results of seven studies with a total of 362 participants. The results were published in the current issue of the journal "Phytotherapy Research". As a result, regular consumption of hibiscus tea can significantly lower high blood pressure. This affects both the systolic and the diastolic value.

Just two cups of hibiscus tea a day are enough

A single study from July 2019 had already reached the same result. For the examinations, 46 patients with high blood pressure were randomly divided into two groups. Both groups received a diet specially designed to support the treatment of high blood pressure and regular exercise training.

Only one group was given a cup of hibiscus tea each morning and evening. After a month, their blood pressure values ​​were significantly better than those of the comparison group who had not drunk hibiscus tea.
