Thumbs up Thursday goes to Hibiscus

The colorful hibiscus flower is cultivated worldwide for both its aesthetic appeal and its medicinal uses, which are primarily in the form of tea. Hibiscus tea is rich in antioxidants. These include vitamin A and vitamin C, along with anthocyanins and malic acid. All of these antioxidants combined help to combat free radical damage throughout your body and lower inflammation. As inflammation can be very dangerous when it becomes chronic, drinking hibiscus tea on a regular basis is a smart choice for your overall health.
