I've been making this tea once per day with hibiscus and hawthorn berries. I really like this tez. It's tart and I sweeten it a bit with honey.
I also drink one cup of filtered water with a fill tablespoon of Braggs Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, as well. I am also taking 2400mg daily of magnesium oxide, 1 fish oil and flax oil capsule daily.
I am adding this to the three BigPharma 'bp meds' daily regimen to help lower my bp and it appears to have done just that where the meds alone have barely lowered both systolic and diastolic pressure. I heat less than one standard coffee cup of filtered water and bring to a boil and shut off the heat and immediately add two tablespoons of hibiscus and 1 teaspoon of hawthorn berries and let it steep for 10-12 minutes and strain it off through a wire strainer back into the cup and stir to dissolve the honey. Often times I will add 1/2 tsp of lemon-lime or lemon.

Beautiful Red Sorrel for Cardiovascular Helth
Posted by priyanka on Dec 29, 2013
Hibiscus flowers, aka 'red sorrel' in english-speaking countries, are a beautiful deep red containing cyanidin, a naturally occurring pigment also found in cranberry, hawthorn, grapes, raspberry, acai, elderberry, and red onions. Some studies suggest that extracts of Hibiscus can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, and it's commonly used in Iran for this purpose. It has also been used traditionally to support healthy fluid retention levels and overall cardiovascular health. This product has a mild, fruity flavour + imparts a gorgeous ruby hue to tea blends. Use it alone or mixed with other loose herbs, it's always a great addition.
