How it supports your body
Hibiscus has been widely consumed in teas and drinks for hundreds of years. As a rich source of antioxidants and polyphenols, hibiscus has many health benefits from supporting immunity, to helping with blood pressure. Traditionally, hibiscus has also been used to support kidney health and to reduce the accumulation of kidney stones.
Not only does hibiscus helps boost your immunity, but by acting as a gentle diuretic, it helps flush your bladder. Combined with our cranberry phytosome, it provides the ultimate combination to promote urinary tract health and flush out any unwanted bacteria that might be trying to hang around.
