Studies show that drinking hibiscus tea daily can help to lower blood pressure. High blood pressure affects about 1/3 of the adult population and is often referred to as “the silent killer” since it presents no symptoms. Here at Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio we take blood pressure on all of our patients and refer them to their physician if it is not in the normal range. We assist you with your overall health and can help achieve and maintain optimal health by catching conditions such as high blood pressure.
For those looking more natural approaches to manage conditions such as high blood pressure research shows that drinking 3 cups of hibiscus tea a day helps to lower blood pressure. The best thing about hibiscus tea is that it tastes good, unlike a lot of herbal teas that can taste, quite frankly, like brewing a cup of weeds picked from the yard. Hibiscus tea tastes good hot or cold and is caffeine free so the entire family can enjoy it. There is a company out of Austin that sells a great hibiscus tea. My favorite is the one with mint, I prefer it iced.
You can find this wonderful tea at www.nilevalleyherbs.com or call 1-512-442-6907. It is owned by a man from Nubia and he sends proceeds from his sales back to Nubia, where they fund much-needed projects—like providing a clean drinking water system, and building schools and health clinics.
