Keepwell’s green tea could help you lose weight, lower your blood pressure, support your upper respiratory health, alleviate occasional constipation, promote proper circulation, calm the nervous system and more. ⁣Thanks to the help of the beautiful Hibiscus flower.

The hibiscus flower is one of the easiest on the eye in the world of plants and flowers, yet only few people are aware of its medicinal benefits. ⁣

It has a number of vitamins and minerals that bring about a calming effect on the nervous system. It has even been used for centuries to treat anxiety. ⁣An added benefit is that it is a natural appetite suppressant. If you are eating less (especially late in the day) it can help with weight loss. ⁣⁣
It is being assessed in India currently for use in treatment for type I and type II diabetes. ⁣

Those looking for heart health support could do worse than have a look at this plant. It is used in Africa in the middle east to ease high blood pressure. Those who are looking for fluid balance in their bodies should try some of this plant as well so may be of benefit to those who retain a lot of fluid especially around their cycle. ⁣

In Europe, hibiscus has been used for the last 200 years to help support upper respiratory health, alleviate occasional constipation, and promote proper circulation. Traditionally, it’s used for supporting normal blood pressure maintenance — a use that has been validated in several recent studies. The other great thing about hibiscus is that it can help with stomach problems and there are no proven adverse reactions with it. ⁣
