Some herbalists believe that it may offer support to those who are looking to lower their blood pressure, but you should never attempt to use it for this purpose without speaking to your doctor and getting permission. If you are on blood pressure medications, you should avoid hibiscus as it may have an unsafe interaction. Never attempt to use any herbal remedy as a substitute for proper medical care.
