Hawthorn research has focused on congestive heart failure, and sour tea research has focused on hypertension and dyslipidemia, with several clinical trials emerging in the last 3–4 years.

Hawthorne and Hibiscus, have a long ethnobotanical use as cardiac tonics.

For the ever-growing number of patients who refuse statins, hawthorne and hibiscus can be important tools—especially in the context of comprehensive lifestyle changes and other nutraceutical/botanical interventions to reduce life-threatening or debilitating cardiovascular disease.


Scientific interest in Hibiscus has grown in the last several years with a small burst of published research studies, especially in the area of dyslipidemia and hypertension. More than 20 years ago, water extracts of hibiscus flowers were reported to have a relaxation effect on the uterus and to lower the blood pressure.26 Studies in both animal27,28,29,30 and human models have demonstrated that extracts and infusions affect atherosclerosis mechanisms, blood sugar, lipids, and blood pressure.
