Roselle Juice / Healthy drink


As we are moving back to India , i am a bit tied up with last moment packing and winding up..it was a Saturday morning and i rushed to the wet market to get some fruits..where i happened to see a fruit vendor selling these beautiful flowers ..he said that they are the edible calyx of the Hibiscus flower and are called Roselle. Though was running short of time could not resist myself to get some.

In my short 15 months stay , i owe many things to Penang..i began my journey as a blogger here 8 months back..made some good friends and taking back wonderful memories to cherish . One more thing we will miss about Penang are the variety of fruits we find here . May it be sweet and juicy Rambutan or the gorgeous Dragon fruit , the juicy purple Mangosteen or the Durian , we have relished all this tropical delights. To add to the list is this healthy and beautiful Roselle.

Roselle drink is very healthy , can be had as a Hibiscus tea when taken hot and is a perfect thirst quencher drink when taken chilled. The health benefits of hibiscus drink include relief from high blood pressure and high cholesterol, as well as digestive, immune system, and inflammatory problems. It helps to cure liver disease and reduces the risk of cancer. It can also speed up the metabolism and help in healthy, gradual weight loss. It is rich in vitamin C , minerals and various antioxidants , while also helping in the treatment of hypertension and anxiety.
