Drink sorrel tea to lower your blood pressure

Hibiscus tea

This herbal tea is indeed made from the hibiscus flower, and it's as stunning as the bloom itself, turning a deep magenta as it brews. However, some people find the taste of hibiscus tea to be somewhat sour, so I understand if it's not your first choice when you want a soothing cup of tea. Nevertheless, hibiscus tea is worth trying.  Hibiscus tea has actually been in use as a traditional medicine for centuries. And now modern medicine is confirming that it does indeed have some powerful health benefits, particularly when it comes to your blood pressure.

The researchers believe that the hibiscus tea worked so well because it has both antioxidant and diuretic effects, helping the body fight inflammation and flush out unwanted toxins.

If you're concerned about your blood pressure, you could drink a couple cups of hibiscus tea every day. Hibiscus tea certainly is an effective way to lower your blood pressure. So if you can tolerate the taste, go ahead and brew yourself a cup or two. Otherwise, you can get the same blood pressure benefits with an easy-to-swallow capsule.
