Organic tea – rosehip & hibiscus (Planet Organic) 25 bags



The seed pod of a wild rose plant, rosehip has been used to treat indigestion, arthritis, colds and the flu. Hibiscus, a red-flowered shrub, is commonly used in herbal teas because of its pleasant taste. Medicinally, hibiscus has been used to treat upset stomach, anxiety and fevers. Drinking tea made from rosehip and hibiscus is thought to provide a myriad of health benefits.

Rosehips are a good source of vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid. A water-soluble vitamin, vitamin C contributes to the production of collagen, a vital protein that your body needs to make blood vessels, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. It helps keep your bones and teeth healthy. As an antioxidant, vitamin C neutralizes the damaging effects of free radicals. Highly unstable compounds, free radicals damage DNA and may accelerate ageing.

Adding hibiscus to your tea might help control your blood pressure. A study published in “The Journal of Nutrition” in February 2010 found that drinking hibiscus tea reduced blood pressure in people with mild hypertension. Subjects who drank 3 cups of hibiscus tea daily for six weeks achieved notable reduction in arterial blood pressure. Researchers concluded that drinking hibiscus tea in an amount that can be easily incorporated into a person’s diet may play a pivotal role in regulating blood pressure.
