Q. Is there a tea that helps lower high blood pressure?
A. The most promising option is tea made from the dried blossoms of Hibiscus sabdariffa. Most people find its tart flavor tasty.
A review of the research showed that both animal and human studies indicate a blood-pressure lowering effect (Fitoterapia, Mar., 2013). Two or three cups a day seem to provide a therapeutic dose.
Other beverages can also help control blood pressure, including beet juice, grape juice, kefir (fermented milk) and pomegranate juice. We are sending you our Guide to Blood Pressure Treatment so you can learn more about these and other non-drug approaches to combatting hypertension.
