We can control the risks of heart attack and stroke by a simple change of
what we drink every day.
Blood pressure is one of the most common cardiovascular diseases that
cause stroke and heart attack.
According to a recent research on Web MD drinking three cups of Hibiscus
tea will lower High blood pressure.
A habit developed to substitute all the other unhealthy drinks and instead
take Hibiscus tea will also eliminate the intake of sugar which is
dangerous to a healthy heart and body.
I work in a hospital and it is so heartbreaking to know that
the greatest number of patients admitted daily suffers from
either heart attack or stroke.
Young lives have been lost, people devastated and changed permanently by
the effects of these nightmares.
I conducted this research after successfully receiving testimonies from people
who were healed by a change of lifestyle.
I will share the wonders of Hibiscus tea and other benefits to the human body and why
everybody should start taking it immediately.
Knowledge is power. I am now sharing with you power to control your own health and
help others who are battling with the same.
We are a generation that eats unhealthy foods, work out less and wish for healthy body.
Most of the foods we take have more amount of salt, sugar, fat which are very dangerous to a
sufficient fettle beating heart and body.
There is a call on all media, nutritionist, doctors and life for people to change their lifestyles
and embrace eating healthy foods to avoid the risks of being overweight a condition that
threatens the entire function of the body.
I can confess that we are used to eating what our mouth wants and not what the body needs.
In that respect we end up stuffing the body with superfluous junk food which makes us
vulnerable to health risk and diseases.
Not everyone wants to take even ten minutes to do simple walkouts to inhale fresh air to the
lungs, yet the body desires a careful treatment. Soft drinks, caffeine filled drinks are on shelves
for sale and not promoting good health
According to Web MD replacing our mugs with three cups of hibiscus tea will not only lower
high blood pressure but help people to health again.
Diane L. McKay, PHD of Tufts University School of Nutrition showed in a recent research
conducted in Boston that three cups of Hibiscus tea lowered the systolic blood pressure by an
average of 7 points.
Saying while a 7 point drop in blood pressure might not seem like much, studies showed that even
a small change in blood pressure when maintained over time will reduce the risk of stroke and
The study showed that People with the highest blood pressure at the start of the six-week
study benefited the most.
McKay presented the study of 65 healthy men and women with modestly elevated blood
pressure at the American Heart Association (AHA) meeting.
Significantly there was more than the 1-point drop observed in people who were given a
placebo in the form of hibiscus-flavored water, McKay says.
People may say they are now eating healthy organic foods. I agree but we still take
soft drinks, we still use sugar, salt and fat in excessive and deny our body’s regular
It is not about blaming ourselves but embracing something worthy to give us less worries and
peace now that we know.
The drink is made from dried flowers and fruit of the Hibiscus sabdariffa plant that is common in
the tropics and available in stores all over the world.
