Man's best medication has always been nature. For generations, societies have looked to the jungle and the forest for cures and remedies for life's health concerns, whether it was to relieve the symptoms of a common cold or to treat more serious illnesses. As technology and science have advanced, the western world has expended a significant amount of resources in search of more synthetic solutions to these challenges.
Although this has allowed us to reach out to more people with potential solutions, it has also made healthcare increasingly out of reach for many people as healthcare expenses in the industrialized world continue to climb.
Hibiscus is a flowering plant family native to tropical and subtropical areas such as those found in South America and the Caribbean. Although there are hundreds of species of Hibiscus flower, the Roselle bloom is one of the most popular for ingestion. For generations, the leaves and blossoms have been employed for a variety of natural cures as well as plain culinary enjoyment.
Hibiscus has a wide range of medicinal properties. Here are a few of the most compelling reasons to include hibiscus in your normal diet.
1.Reduces Cholesterol. Hibiscus, when consumed in the right proportions, has been demonstrated to decrease cholesterol levels in adults over time. According to studies, taking 1,000 mg of Hibiscus leaves three times a day can lower LDL cholesterol levels. This amount can be ingested as a tea made from fresh leaves and bulbs, or as a product made from the extract of fresh plant materials.
2.Aids in the Control of Blood Pressure. Hibiscus is a plant that can be used instead of blood pressure medicine. Hibiscus has been demonstrated to offer cardio protective and anti-hypertensive qualities, making it a practical, safe, and natural blood pressure-lowering option. If you have high blood pressure, 3 cups of hibiscus tea per day is recommended.
13.Your Immune System is Protected and Boosted. Hibiscus has a high vitamin C content as well as antibacterial capabilities. These ingredients work together to build a solid foundation and enhance your immune system, preventing you from getting the flu or a cold. If you already have the flu, hibiscus can help relieve your symptoms by acting as a natural supply of water as your body fights the infection.
Any assistance you may obtain to get through a terrible cold or flu should be taken advantage of. If you need to protect yourself even more while out and about with a cold, consider using a face mask to preserve your immune system while also protecting others.
