Weight Loss Must Try: Hibiscus Teas!

Nov 28, 2015 02:33 PM EST | By Joie Balboa

A new research discovers a new source of weight loss - hibiscus flower.

The petal-flower is a not so familiar tropical flower. It can't be seen usually alongside daisies in the garden. The exotic flower compared to garden-variety daisies is traditionally worn by Tahitian and Hawaiian girls.

Placing the hibiscus behind the ear suggests a lot about someone's relationship status; if it is worn behind left ear it means she's taken while she's single if it is behind the right ear.

But aside from determining relationship status and matchmaking power, a study published in October 2015 claims that hibiscus petals could also be a source of weight-loss.

Researchers tried the experiment to animals that are in high-fats diet. They found out that the animals that ate more of the hibiscus petals have reduced weight and decrease the risk of obesity. The petals also lessen the symptoms like fatty liver, loss of blood glucose regulation and a fat-cell increase.

Scientists have concluded that the hibiscus flower extracts were effective and a possible treatment tactic in preventing the development and treatment of obesity's symptoms.

Incorporating the national bloom of Haiti into a weight-loss diet is not that easy as putting the petals into a glass, a tea can be a good start.  Natur Boutique, specialists in herbal teas, creates an Organic Diet Tea that's accessible in high-street store Holland & Barrett.

The tea is a combination of hibiscus, pineapple, green and java teas that makes a fruity and tasty drink. Other flavors are available in different tea which combines hibiscus, pomegranate, rosehip or goji berry which surely suits the taste buds of the customer.

Since obesity is most widely spread all over America this research will surely benefits Americans in fighting obeisty. Try the hibiscus tea and personally witness the result.
