Have you been diagnosed as hypertensive?
You are not alone. According to the Center for Disease Control 1 out 3 of all Americans will suffer from hypertension at some point in their life. 
The medical journal Lancet recently found that, if you live in a developed country like the USA or Canada, your risk of becoming hypertensive is more than 90%. 
The pharmaceutical industry is making a fortune from this “epidemic”
There are over 100 prescription medications currently being promoted by drug companies. Most doctors are fast on the draw with their prescription pad.
Consequently, millions of people, like you, are facing a lifetime of dependency on expensive drugs and a constant seesaw battle with their blood pressure.
It’s not just the money they are taking from your wallet that’s concerning. A 2003 study in the UK found that 97% of people taking medications to manage their blood pressure will experience a significant adverse side effect during the course of their treatment. 
Expensive and dangerous drugs are not the only answer
Research show that 85% of people diagnosed with high blood pressure could successfully manage their high blood pressure with lifestyle choices alone. 
And a 2015 meta-study in the Journal of Hypertension found that a single herb, traditionally used to help manage high blood pressure in places are far flung as China, India, Egypt and the Caribbean, significantly reduced the average participants blood pressure. 
Your next check up could have your doctor reducing or even taking you off your blood pressure medications. Wouldn’t that be a refreshing change? Instead of choking down pills all day you could be relaxing three times a day with a soothing and delicious cup of herbal tea.
I misjudged this herb!
I founded Immortalitea over 12 years ago focused on bringing healing herbal teas to North America. As an herbalist, I’ve known about this herb for many years but I’ve never offered it before because, frankly, I had pigeon-holed it as a “foo-foo” herb, an herb that looked beautiful and added lot’s of flavor but should play a supporting role in herbal blends and not be the star of the show.
But for thousands of years this herb has been consumed in countries around the globe both for pleasure and for the health benefits. The most frequently mentioned benefit is helping manage blood pressure.
In 2015 researchers from Australia, Romania, Poland and Iran teamed up to answer once and for all if this traditional herb lived up to it’s reputation. Their results changed my mind and, if you’ve been making the same mistake,could change your mind also.
I’m not suggesting this herbal tea will manage your blood pressure on it’s own. Practical lifestyle changes are also needed including:
•managing your blood sugar
•reducing stress and
•regular vigorous exercise
But if you have already made those changes and haven’t yet received the results you want, this herbal tea may just be the extra boost you need.
Introducing Hibiscus sabdariffa
The herb I’m talking about is Hibiscus sabdariffa. You probably know it as simply Hibiscus tea or Roselle Tea. By adding this simple herbal tea to your routine three times a day you can.
This prediction is not based on one study but literally hundreds. There were over 300 such studies in 2015 alone.
Individual studies, especially ones not funded by a big-Pharma, tend to be conducted with relatively small numbers of test subjects. The risk of a single statistical variation means such studies are never taken as definitive.
In a meta-study researchers first review the literature to find high quality random controlled studies on a given subject and use statistical analysis techniques to merge the studies into one large test group. The results of meta-studies are considered much more reliable.
In this study I mentioned earlier, published in June of last year in The Journal of Hypertension, independent researchers merged data from several prior studies on hibiscus sabdariffa. They excluded any studies they judged to be of poor quality or without appropriate random controls.
After merging data they had a research group comprised of 390 subjects. 225 of these people drank this tea (or took it as a supplement), the remaining 165 were used for comparison or “control.
The combined data found that the average person drinking hibiscus tea reduced their systolic blood pressure (SBP) by 7.58 mmHg and their diastolic blood pressure (DBP) by 3.53 mmHg. That’s huge!
The scientists concluded “These findings favor the traditional use of this natural, safe, and inexpensive supplement in patients with essential hypertension.” For normally pretty conservative scientist types, that’s geek-speak for “Wow! This stuff really works”
After over 6 months of searching I found a grower that meets our stringent criteria,
Organic Whole Flower Hibiscus Tea
This week only, we’re offering a special price for our Organic Whole Flower Hibiscus Tea.
Not Just Any Hibiscus Tea
Most herb and tea companies sell low-priced cut and sifted hibiscus tea. Cut and sifted hibiscus is the cheapest way to produce hibiscus. If you’ve ever seen a fully bloomed hibiscus flower you know they open up into a large beautiful flower. By harvesting in the later stage of growth the flowers are easier to pick and, by not worrying about keeping the flowers whole, big commercial growers can mechanize and automate much of the process. Unfortunately, this results in a less potent tea, shorter shelf life and a harsh flavor profile. I knew this would never do for Immortalitea.
It took me over 6 months but I finally found the perfect hibiscus tea. A community farm on the slopes of Mt. Emei in Sichuan province grows it. Every year members of the community gather to hand pick the unopened hibiscus flowers. They are then sorted and dried with care to preserve the entire flower bud intact.
This is a labor-intensive and time-consuming. It means our hibiscus tea is bit more expensive but once you experience these whole flower hibiscus buds opening in your cup, see the intense color and taste the fresh flavor, I think you will agree it’s worth the effort.
Our hibiscus fields on the slopes of Mt. Emei
A one-pound bag of our whole flower hibiscus tea will brew approximately 200 cups of flavorful tea. At this special introductory price, you’re paying less than 8¢ per cup to make a huge difference in your health.
Also, because this is the first time we’re working with this cooperative, I was only able to purchase 200 lbs. of this hibiscus tea. So, if we run out during this introductory offer, that’s it until late this summer.
