Hibiscus tea brings numerous health benefits, in addition to being great for those who want to lose weight. But despite being so healthy, the natural drink can also carry some risks.

Research conducted by Guru Jambheshwar University of Science and Technology, India revealed that hibiscus tea can alter the fertility of female audiences.

“This study shows that continuous consumption of hibiscus tea interferes with circulating levels of the hormone estrogen, which inhibits women’s ovulation and causes transient infertility. The excessive consumption of tea can cause your fertility and your hormones to be harmed”, warned gynecologist Tricia Barreto .

The professional also commented that women who suffer from Premenstrual Tension and other conditions of the endocrine system should also avoid ingesting hibiscus tea, which can worsen cases thanks to interference in the ovulation process.
