Living a long and healthy life can be a reality when consuming the right kinds of foods and products. Hibiscus is still relatively unknown but with its endless health benefits it should be a staple for those wanting to boost their longevity. From reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, improving cardiovascular health, and aiding in weight loss, hibiscus could be the miracle cure.
In a study published in the National Library of Medicine, hibiscus use and how it prolongs a person’s lifespan was analysed.
The study noted: “Hibiscus sabdariffa L. is commonly used as an ingredient for herbal teas and food supplements.
“Several studies demonstrated the beneficial effects of Hibiscus sabdariffa L. extracts (HSE).
“HSE treatment resulted in a prominent extension of lifespan (up to 24 percent) and a reduction of the age-dependent decline in locomotion.
“Our results demonstrate that HSE increases lifespan.”
