Gumamela Tea good for cardiovascular health

Are gumamela flowers nice to have in your garden? Apparently they're good to have for breakfast, too!

This is my first time to hear about a tea made from gumamela, but it appears that gumamela extract is used in many tea blends. It appears that extract from the hibiscus flower has a high amount of antioxidants, b-carotene, and BHA. It has been implicated in lowering cholesterol levels in the blood, and now in lowering blood pressure also. What else? It decreases the chances for artherosclerosis (hardening of blood vessels) as it prevents oxidation of LDL-cholesterol in the blood. It is also a good diuretic and helps fight UTI. It is even good for the skin!

So, this is actually as good as red wine! I wonder how soon we Filipinos can dig into this :)
