REDUCE BLOOD PRESSURE.....naturally          facebook.com/OasisAdvncedWellness

About 1 in 3 U.S. adults- an estimated 68 million- have high blood pressure, which can increase the risk for heart disease and stroke, leading causes of death in the United States. High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because it often has no warning signs or symptoms; many people do not realize they have it. It is important to get your blood pressure checked regularly. The good news is that you can take steps to prevent high blood pressure, or to reduce it if it is already high.

Science has shown that many foods can help lower blood pressure. A study published in The Journal of Nutrition found that drinking hibiscus tea (RECIPE FOLLOWS ) was highly effective in adults who have high blood pressure were prehypertensive or mildly hypertensive.

RECIPE OF THE MONTH

ICED HIBISCUS TEA     foodnetwork.com

I have been making this ice tea every summer, since I discovered the recipe several years ago. The cinnamon sticks and orange slices makes it taste like a punch.

48 ounces water

3 Tbl. hibiscus flowers loose or in tea bags( 1 teabag equals 1 tsp. so you will need a total of 9 tea bags)

2 cinnamon sticks

1/8 cup sugar

1 small orange, sliced

ice

1 lemon, cut into wedges

Bring water to a light boil, turn off heat, add the hibiscus flowers and cinnamon sticks. Cover and steep for 20 minutes.

Strain tea into desired container, add sugar and orange slices and serve over ice.. Garnish each glass with a lemon slice.

Chef Notes: This tea can be doubled for a larger serving When using herbs in tea making, longer, is not better. Heating the herbs for an extended time can release unfavorable qualities and bitterness found in herbs. The key is to add MORE herbs to strengthen flavor.

ENJOY!
