Hibiscus flowers are increasingly becoming recognized as a "super food" with medicinal properties. They are high in antioxidants (which likely emanate from their red pigments, known as anthocyanins), and have also been shown to be able to help reduce high blood pressure in people with Type 2 diabetes, when drunk as a tea.

Hibiscus flowers are increasingly becoming recognized as a "super food" with medicinal properties. They are high in antioxidants (which likely emanate from their red pigments, known as anthocyanins), and have also been shown to be able to help reduce high blood pressure in people with Type 2 diabetes, when drunk as a tea.

Product Notes:

Yomm produces a whole line of ready-to-drink caffeine-free Hibiscus tea beverages which are available in-store, but for those who enjoy steeping their own tea (or who would like to incorporate Hibiscus into their cooking, or want to add a new aroma to their potpourri), these loose dried flower petals are available, packed in airtight foil bags.

Dr. Diane L. McKay discusses findings that drinking hibiscus tea can reduce systolic blood pressure at the 2008 annual Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association, with Bruce Jancin of Elsevier Global Medical News (EGMN).

Suggested Usage:

Add 1 tablespoon of dried Hibiscus flower to 1 to 2 cups of boiling water and steep for 3 to 7 minutes. Pour the infusion through a strainer. Sweeten to taste or flavour with ginger, lemon, cinnamon, mint, or other flavours, if desired. May be consumed either hot or cold.

Supporting Science:

A study found the average systolic blood pressure for those drinking hibiscus tea decreased from 134.4 mmHg (17.97 kPa) to 112.7 mmHg (15.03 kPa), one month later. See "The effects of sour tea (Hibiscus sabdariffa) on hypertension in patients with type II diabetes". Journal of Human Hypertension (January 2009).
