If You Have Any Of These Health Problems, Avoid Drinking Bissap (Sobolo)

Hibiscus sabdariffa is a flowering plant that grows in the subtropics and is used to make hibiscus tea. Its flowers are used to make medicinal goods, spice herbal beverages, and edible objects. Hibiscus intake has been shown to help weight loss, strengthen the immune system by providing vitamin C and antioxidants, relieve hot flashes, and treat dandruff and acne.

Despite its benefits, hibiscus tea has the potential to cause damage.

If you have any pre-existing health issues, talk to your doctor before adding hibiscus tea to your diet. According to the Bastyr Center for Natural Health at the University of Pennsylvania, hibiscus tea will open and expand your blood vessels, potentially increasing your risk of heart disease. Regularly drinking hibiscus tea lowers the systolic blood pressure by an average of 7.2 points. Don't drink hibiscus tea if you're taking medication for hypertension or low blood pressure.

Intoxication and hallucination are also common hibiscus tea side effects. The tea has the potential to interfere with your ability to concentrate and focus. When performing these tasks, avoid drinking hibiscus tea.

Hibiscus has the potential to interfere with certain drugs. It has an anticancer effect when combined with other anticancer agents, and it has an additive effect when combined with antiviral agents. It affects how antimalarial drugs like chloroquine and quinine are absorbed in your body, as well as how inflammatory agents like acetaminophen are processed. To reduce harmful side effects, wait at least two hours after taking an anti-inflammatory drug before drinking hibiscus tea.

Hibiscus tea has estrogenic properties, according to research conducted at India's Guru Jambheshwar University of Science and Technology on pregnancy and fertility. Female fertility and childbearing are hindered by too much hibiscus. It lowers estrogen levels, particularly in women. Polycylic aromatic hydrocarbons found in hibiscus tea have been linked to cancer and birth defects. Hibiscus tea should be avoided by expectant mothers.

According to some experts, hibiscus infusions contain high levels of aluminum, so no sensitive individual can consume more than a litre of the infusion per day. According to the researchers, children, pregnant women, and people with chronic kidney disease should avoid this infusion completely. Aluminum is a neurotoxin and a non-essential component, with well-known harmful effects in patients with chronic renal failure who are on early dialysis machines.
