Health Benefits of Sorrel
Sorrel tea has been shown to lower blood pressure. The benefits of this are many, including better heart and blood vessel health. This can significantly reduce the risk for heart problems. And there’s nothing wrong with having a healthier heart.
The antioxidant content of sorrel tea has been shown to lower cholesterol, specifically the “bad” LDL cholesterol. Excess LDL cholesterol can damage the heart and blood vessels. Drinking sorrel tea can help protect against this damage and keeps the circulatory system healthy by reducing this cholesterol.
Free radicals play a major role in the formation of cancerous cells. Antioxidants found in sorrel tea “scavenge” on these free radicals, changing their structure and helping eliminate their toxic effects on the body. One antioxidant in particular, protocatechuic acid, was even found to have anti-tumor properties.
Our refreshing tea is naturally packed with an abundance of antioxidants and flavonoids. Once these powerful molecules get into your system they get to work eliminating toxic free radicals that can cause all types of diseases. As well, these antioxidants and flavonoids reduce inflammation throughout the body. Combine free radical fighting with reduced inflammation and lower blood pressure and your immune system can work more efficiently to keep you feeling your best.

These power-packed polyphenols stimulate digestion and can even prevent bloating, upset stomach, and heartburn, problems typically associated with poor digestion.
