Hibiscus flowers have been traditionally used for cholesterol levels, weight-loss, high blood pressure, as a liver and kidney tonic, and as an aphrodisiac. Make tea or drink.
Hibiscus flowers are often intercropped with peanuts. Occasionally fragments of peanut shells are present. Caution for individuals with severe peanut allergies. Hibiscus has been shown to increase the urinary excretion of acetaminophen. Like acidic citrus, it can aggravate heartburn, and it may be too cooling for folks who run very cold.
