Flower Power! Lower Your Blood Pressure with Flowers

The Hibiscus flower has the ability to change Blood Pressure!

When Hibiscus flowers are mentioned, many visualize the exotic red blossom pinned in the hair of a Hawaiian woman.

The Hibiscus - one of the most beautiful flowers in the world - comes in numerous colors, shapes and sizes. Some have single petals, others double or crested.

Now researchers are seeing this unique flower may help in controlling blood pressure and lowering cholesterol.

Hibiscus flower extract may have some of the same cardiovascular health benefits as red wine, say researchers. Hibiscus forms the basis of a traditional Eastern remedy and researchers suggest an extract from the flower could have the same health benefits for the heart as red wine and tea.

Studies show that Hibiscus flowers can assist in controlling blood pressure, increasing circulation and reducing cholesterol. Also, the high vitamin C content in Hibiscus flowers can help resist colds and chest congestion.

A research team from the Chung Shan Medical University in Taiwan found that Hibiscus contains antioxidants that help control cholesterol. The study, published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, found the hibiscus extract significantly reduced the build up of fatty deposits in arteries and reduced blood cholesterol levels.
Researchers also found it contains antioxidants that are known to reduce the dangerous build up of fats inside the arteries.

They found the hibiscus extract significantly reduced the build up of fatty deposits in arteries and blood cholesterol levels.

In another study, Dr Grifiths, a member of the British Heart Health Foundation, said "this previous research has suggested that a variety of naturally occurring flavonoids - found in fruit, red wine, tea and Hibiscus have sufficient potent antioxidant properties that reduce oxidation of the harmful type of cholesterol, LDL”. The research study claims that hibiscus flowers are particularly efficient at reducing cholesterol and helping lower blood pressure – “we would be interested to see if long-term studies involving people produce similar results."

But she said: "It is also important to stress that whatever the protective potential of hibiscus, our advice still remains the same: regular physical activity and eating a diet high in fruit and vegetables, taking supplements is helpful, and a diet low in saturated fat."
