Taste: Sweet blueberry with a sour top-note of hibiscus
Blueberry Hibiscus is a combination of herbs and berries to strengthen your veins and heart, and promote healthy circulation.
Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids, and are high in Vitamin C and potassium, even in dried form. They lower the risk of heart disease and cancer and have anti-inflammatory benefits.
Hibiscus is a dried flower which contains anthocyanins that are beneficial for heart health. Hibiscus has been shown to normalise blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels, help break down fat in the liver, help your body fight against cancer. It has also been shown in the lab to inhibit eight different kinds of pathogenic bacteria, including e.coli. Hibiscus has also been shown to aid weight loss.
Cranberries are a powerhouse of phytonutrients which are beneficial for boosting brain power, aiding weight loss, combating tooth decay, nourishing skin, promoting heart health, strengthening veins, strengthening immunity, fighting cancer and flushing out UTI’s.
Rooibos contains the flavonoid chrysoeriol, which is a bronchodilator. This compound is effective at lowering blood pressure and increasing circulation. Rooibos also contains aspalathin which has been shown to regulate the symptoms of diabetes and prevent cardiovascular disease and heart attacks by reducing vascular inflammation, which restricts blood flow to the heart.
All of my blends contain ingredients which work together in synergy for both taste and function.
*Herbs should be part of a holistic health plan along with nutrition, exercise and consultation with your doctor when necessary.
