Today, thousands of people take or consume food, drinks without knowing the health benefits as well as their side effects. As a result of this, lots of people get sick and develop certain health issues.

The hibiscus tea is composed of 15-30 percent of organic acids. These acids include malic acid, tartaric acid, and citric acid. They help in boosting immunity, promoting better skin, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, managing inflammation, and improving digestive issues.

1. Low blood pressure

One health benefits of hibiscus tea include lowering blood pressure. Therefore, it is not recommended for people who already have low blood pressure or hypotension. Studies indicate that it may cause dizziness and lead to damage of the heart or brain if consumed by anyone with low blood pressure.


2. Pregnancy

According to an International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, hibiscus tea is not recommended for pregnant women, particularly due to its emmenagogue effects, which may stimulate menstruation or blood flow in the uterus or pelvic region.

If you are undergoing hormonal treatments or taking birth control pills, I recommend that you consult your health specialist regarding the consumption of any type of tea because it is a delicate period.


3. Diabetes

Hibiscus tea may lower the blood sugar levels so it is best advised to consult your doctor if suffering from diabetes or planning to undergo surgery.
