Roselle, also known as Jamaica, is a hibiscus flower. It is used as a drink, but also as a medicine to reduce fever during colds and to provide nourishment during illness. It also lowers cholesterol and blood glucose, reduces risk of heart disease, has hypotensive (lowers blood pressure) and antibacterial activity, and is protective of kidneys and the liver. In addition, Jamaica has high levels of anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants that scavenge inflammatory cells in the body.
