Hibiscus Is More Than Just a Pretty Flower - 120/Life

What is Hibiscus?

It’s hard not to smile when you see and smell a hibiscus flower. These spectacular flowers hold a special significance to 120/Life, as one of the key ingredients in our beverage for high blood pressure. So what is it about Hibiscus that makes it so special? 

What is Hibiscus Good For?

Hibiscus is hardly just a beautiful flower, the hibiscus tree is known for its tremendous heart health benefits and its ability to help boost your immune system and protect cell damage caused by free radicals. The hibiscus flower can be brewed into a tea which is rich with antioxidant properties that protect blood vessels.

What Are Some of the Key Properties of Hibiscus?

1. Hibiscus is a Natural ACE Inhibitor

Hibiscus acts as a natural ACE inhibitor. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors help relax your veins and arteries to lower your blood pressure. They prevent an enzyme in your body from producing angiotensin II, a compound that stiffens your blood vessels. This stiffening can cause high blood pressure and force your heart to work harder.

2. Hibiscus is a Potassium-Sparing Diuretic

Hibiscus acts as a natural version of a potassium-sparing diuretic. Synthetic versions of such diuretics are widely prescribed for high blood pressure. However, recent studies suggest that hibiscus can lower blood pressure as effectively as some standard anti-hypertensive drugs. It is safe, and unlike most drugs, rarely causes side effects

3. Hibiscus Has Cholesterol Balancing Effects 

Research published over the years suggests that hibiscus tea can help to increase the amount of HDL or “good” cholesterol, while keeping LDL or “bad” cholesterol in check. 

    For all the reasons above, Hibiscus is one of our favorite ingredients, straight from nature’s pharmacy. Check out our e-book for more information on hibiscus and the other natural ingredients in 120/Life!.
