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.
Subjects: 54 people, 52 years-old on average
