Lowers blood pressure effectively without prescription. I drink the tea some days but the 1,000mg supplements are easier. I don't like steeping a tea bag 3 times a day. But It's better than using drugs and having to worry about hair loss, kidney failure or diabetes from regular HBP meds. At this point I'm willing to try anything than taking HBP meds.

I have tried drinking looseleaf hibiscus tea. I used to drink very diluted hibiscus and saw little effects, but recently tried to concentrate the tea and see a dramatic improvement in the systolic blood pressure --15 points. my diastolic has not improved.

Comment:
My friends bring me dried hibiscus flowers from Sudan and I make tea and drink it during the day. It is sour,so I add cranberry or apple juice for sweetness.I take prescription medication ,but sometimes my blood pressure goes out of control and hibiscus in such cases is very helpfull,as well as hawthorn berries and fresh garlic.
