Hibiscus Tea - Lower Your Blood Pressure

Hibiscus tea is popular in many countries and used as a natural remedy for high blood pressure.

During the study, 54 patients with high blood pressure were given hibiscus tea to drink. All the patients were in there fifties and each had stopped taking their blood pressure medication one week prior to the study. Each patient had their blood pressure read one hour after drinking the hibiscus tea. 

Hibiscus tea contains powerful antioxidants, including anthocyanins, which help protect your cells from free-radical damage.


Traditional Uses of Hibiscus Tea

All parts of the plant are used, from the seeds to the roots. Common hibiscus is used mainly for respiratory problems, but is also widely used for skin disorders or to treat fevers. Rose of Sharon is used externally as an emollient, but is also taken internally for gastrointestinal disorders.


Lower Blood Pressure

Hibiscus and rose of Sharon contain hypotensive compounds that are known to lower the blood pressure. Roselle's ability to lower blood pressure may be due to its diuretic and laxative effects. The plant contains ascorbic and glycolic acid, which increase urination.



Hibiscus tea contains citric acid which is a natural coolant. In Pakistan and Nepal, it is the flowers that are used as a treatment for fever. Common hibiscus has been found to be particularly useful for children's fevers.


Respiratory disorders

Common hibiscus is used to treat coughs by placing extracts from the plant in the patient's bath or in water used for steam inhalations. Hibiscus is often combined with other herbs to make a cough syrup. Hibiscus is used widely in Cuba, where the tropical climate contributes to respiratory illnesses, and where hibiscus is readily found.


Skin conditions

Hibiscus is a natural emollient, used for softening or healing the skin. The leaves and flowers of the roselle are used all around the world for their emollient qualities. When the leaves are heated, they can be placed on cracked feet or on boils and ulcers to promote healing. Since the herb is a cooling herb, when applied externally it cools the surface of the skin by increasing blood flow to the epidermis and dilating the pores of the skin. A lotion made from a decoction of hibiscus leaves can be used to soothe hemorrhoids, sunburn, open sores, and wounds.
