It’s hot here in Spain now as Summer finally decided to turn up. With temperatures in the high 30s (ºC) and high humidity levels we were looking at ways to keep cool. One of our favourite recovery drinks, Calm&Relax, is packed full of antioxidants and useful for mopping up free radicles. A closer inspection of the ingredient listing also showed that Hibiscus petals maybe helping us to “cool down” after a ride.
The Ayurvedic masters also recognised this effect and demonstrated why hibiscus tea tastes so good during the summer months. In traditional Ayurvedic medicine Hibiscus has cooling properties and is known as a refrigerant. So, as well as helping with a variety of health conditions Hibiscus can also help us to cool down!
