HIBISCUS TEA & BLOOD PRESSURE

Hibiscus tea lowered blood pressure by 7 points from 129 to 122 mmHg in Tufts University study

Three servings of hibiscus tea (H. sabdariffa) per day for six weeks lowered blood pressure by an average of 7 mmHg systolic and 3 mmHg diastolic in people with mild hypertension or prehypertension according to a study from researchers at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Each serving was 8-ounces (240 mL).

Blood pressure dropped in those given hibiscus tea from an average of 129/79 mmHg to 122/76 mmHg after six weeks compared to an average drop in those given a placebo from 130/80 to 129/79 mmHg.

The authors of the study noted that other studies have found that hibiscus tea lowered blood pressure about twice as much in people with higher blood pressures.

“Daily consumption of 3 servings of H. sabdariffa (hibiscus) tea, an amount readily incorporated into the diet, effectively lowered [blood pressure] in pre- and mildly hypertensive adults,” the authors of the study concluded.

HIBISCUS TEA & BLOOD PRESSURE

Hibiscus tea lowered blood pressure by 11% in people with mild hypertension

In people with mild hypertension, hibiscus tea (H. sabdariffa) lowered blood pressure, both systolic and diastolic, by roughly 11% within twelve days of starting treatment which would mean a drop of roughly 16 points systolic and 10 points diastolic.

In other words, if someone had a blood pressure of 150/90 mmHg, their blood pressure would be lowered to 134/80 mmHg.
