What are the benefits of hibiscus?
In Mexico we drink a lot of hibiscus tea. It is a very common and well known "agua fresca". It's delicious, fresh and sour … and I'm crazy in love with it. I love it! The best part is that it has lots of nutritional benefits for us. Even Dr. Greger talks about them in his book "How Not to Die".
Hibiscus has tons of antioxidants and vitamin C, and it tastes good. Doesn't that look like a dream?
It helps to protect us from cancer, it makes us look beautiful and young. It has so much vitamin C that it even helps our body fight against colds and sore throats. It helps with menopause, acne, it is diuretic and has many more benefits.
That's why we drink it and eat it. You will really be surprised at how amazing it is.
