Whenever my blood pressure spikes, an almost sure-fire remedy is drinking a couple cups of deep red, hot hibiscus tea.
It's really a delicious tasting tea, to me anyway, and it's beautiful to look at.
I have no idea what causes it to help lower pressure readings but am just glad that it does.
The brand most commonly used in our house is Traditional Medicinals.
A plus to the tea is that each bag has a message attached to the end of its string.
So many of them are just what I need to read on any given day.
Here are some of the reminder messages, in alphabetical order:
savor and smile!
All are gentle reminders and great advice toward having a quality life!
The tea is not cheap and the price even went up in the one specialty store where I buy it. It's close to $6 a box for just 16 bags.
However, compared to blood pressure medication and possible side effects, not to mention cost, I'll gladly pay for the tea.
Watching salt intake, keeping an eye on relaxing instead of stressing, and upping exercise all help in the lowering blood pressure department. Plus, the delicious hibiscus tea!
