    I have started drinking Hibiscus tea but several questions have not been answered by your article. Just an FYI midicinal Hibiscus is not the same variety of ornamental Hibiscus, was the poster of the article aware of this? Also could you put your dosages in better format and are the Hibiscus tea varieties sold over the counter comparable to the ones discussed in the article

    Brings my BP down, but only for a short while. I don't want to be taking pills all through the day and it is not one of those substances that has no toxicity at high doses. Alas.

    It reversed what it was intended to do. Blood Pressure went up, anxious, nervous, canâ??t sleep. Does it affect anyone else like that?

    I drink it as a tee, and it has helped reduce my blood pressure, cholesterol, etc. I go by it sometimes works for some people, and sometimes it doesn't.

    systolic up to 167, diastolic up to 120 lisinopril 10 mg 2x daily After 3 days of 3 cups daily of Hibiscus (2 parts) and Hawthorn Berry (1 part) tea boiled 10 minutes and strained I was able to drop to 1 Lisinopril daily. I was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and within 48 hours of using my c-pap, I no longer needed the tea or RX therapy.
