Research confirms that Jamaican Sorrel is high in Vitamins and Minerals with powerful antioxidant properties. It helps lower elevated blood pressure, bad cholesterol and detoxify the entire body. Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity (ORAC) is a measure of total hydrophilic capacity. In fact, eating high ORAC foods such as Jamaican Sorrel can significantly raise the antioxidant power of human blood. It has a ORAC rating which is higher than vegetable juice, tomato juice and orange juice; and compares favorably to Cranberry Juice and Pomegranate Juice, which is well known for its antioxidant properties.
The antioxidant properties in sorrel helps provide our bodies with protection against free radicals, molecules which cause heart disease, stroke, hypertension, Alzheimer’s, premature aging and cancer. Sorrel also helps flush the prostate and maintains the proper functioning of the liver, kidney and bladder.
The medical value of sorrel (officially called the Rosella plant, or Hibiscus Sabdariffa) has been noted in studies from various countries (Brazil, China, Cuba, India, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, Nigeria, India, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States). Medical studies illustrate Sorrel’s ability to improve quality of life by helping to maintain the health and wellness of the entire body.Medical Disclaimer – All material provided within this website is for informational and educational purposes only, and in no way is any of the content on this website to be construed as medical advice or instruction.
