Hibiscus & Monk Fruit: A Smooth, Sugar-Free Combination
Traditionally, hibiscus has been used to support normal blood pressure, cardiovascular health, and digestion. Due to its high vitamin C and anti-oxidant content, hibiscus helps boost the immune system and aids recovery from colds and flu viruses. Our very own HEYRU Hibiscus Flowers are ethically-sourced and cultivated in Nigeria. Dried hibiscus flowers steeped in cold or hot water makes a highly nutritious, caffeine-free beverage. The taste is earthy, tart, and clean without a lot of natural sweetness.
To add a bit of sweetness to your hibiscus beverage, you might want to consider trying out our HEYRU Monk Fruit Sweetener. Monk fruit extract is typically up to 250 times sweeter than regular sugar, but has zero calories and therefore does not affect blood sugar levels. This makes it an excellent sweetener alternative if you are watching your calories, have diabetes or stick to a keto diet. In addition to these benefits, monk fruit is rich in anti-oxidants, helps alleviate allergy symptoms and reduce inflammation, improves heart health, is cholesterol-free and leaves no aftertaste.
