Hibiscus Bliss: An Active Life And A Healthy Heart

What Hibiscus Bliss Can Do For You
Hibiscus Bliss gets its power from its main ingredient, hibiscus sabdariffa. This edible flower has been enjoyed for centuries by many cultures and makes a great addition to the new modern diet. Hibiscus Bliss is rich in plant-based phytonutrients and offer antioxidant benefits that support an active life and a healthy heart.

Lower Blood Pressure
According to a report published in the Journal of Hypertension in 2015, drinking hibiscus tea daily can benefit people with high blood pressure. Researchers sized up five previously published clinical trials investigating the effects of hibiscus on blood pressure. Results revealed that hibiscus lowered both systolic and diastolic blood pressures. Hypertension (high blood pressure) and high cholesterol are major contributors to heart attack and coronary disease.

Better Cholesterol
There have been studies that indicate hibiscus tea can help lower LDL cholesterol. In a 2009 study from the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, researchers assigned 60 diabetes patients to drink hibiscus tea or black tea twice daily for a month. Looking at data on the 53 people who completed the study, the study's authors found that members of the hibiscus group had a significant increase in HDL ("good") cholesterol and a significant decrease in total cholesterol and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol.

A 2010 trial on 222 adults with metabolic challenges published in Phytomedicineconcluded drinking hibiscus tea helped participants maintain their cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

Diabetes Management
Hibiscus tea has hypoglycemic properties and drinking hibiscus tea can benefit people with type 2 diabetes.

Reduce Inflammation and Cramps
Antioxidants in hibiscus tea can offer relief from inflammation, cramping and menstrual pain.

Cautions
Women who are pregnant or nursing should avoid overconsumption of hibiscus tea. Like other herbal teas, hibiscus tea can interfere with the efficacy of prescription drugs and other supplements. Consult your doctor about adding hibiscus tea to your daily routine.

The Takeaway
Hibiscus Bliss is a delicious and versatile beverage that is great brewed hot and cold. The blend contains healthy plant-based antioxidants and abundant benefits. It's also caffeine-free and can be enjoyed any time of day or night making it a tasty addition to the modern life.
