hibiscus is a genus of plants from the mallow family with around 200 to 675 species. It comes from Asia and grows in tropical and subtropical climates. The plant grows as annual or perennial herbaceous plants, shrubs, subshrubs and trees. Rather, it is known for its use and healing properties. In today’s article, you will learn a little more about it.
hibiscus is known and consumed mainly in the form of herbal tea. As a plant, however, it has a long history in traditional medicine. The beautiful flowers that we need to make tea have a healing effect. Usually the taste is sour and tart and you add a little sugar or lemon. It has been medically proven that hibiscus tea is a miracle cure and protects the heart, circulation and blood vessels. The flavors – the flavonoids – act as cell and vascular protective scavengers, at least if it comes from organic farming. It is a diuretic, which means that the plant stops the water from spreading in the body and widens the vessels so that they can transport the blood normally.
Here is the recipe for a hibiscus tea: Boil a liter of water and add 3 to 5 tablespoons of dried hibiscus flowers and a stick of cinnamon. Let it swell for 20 minutes and then sieve. Serve with sugar and orange (squeezed or in pieces). You can drink it cold and warm.
Soothing effect on athlete’s foot and high blood pressure
Science has really proven that hibiscus reduced blood pressure from 132/80 to 102/70. Iranian researchers gave hibiscus tea to a group of participants after each meal and statistically recorded significantly low blood pressure in 44% of cases in one month. The Boston Research Team reports a seven point blood pressure reduction system in people who drink hibiscus tea. This also reduces the risk of dying from a heart attack or stroke.
While antifungal agents are still being researched in pharmacy, many hibiscus lovers report the medicinal properties of this plant. The hibiscus tree and its dried leaves have been shown to be effective in treating athlete’s foot thanks to the antifungal and antibacterial effects of Rhiyoctonia solani – a disease-causing fungus that attacks plants.
