For thousands of years, chrysanthemum has been used in TCM(Traditional Chinese Medicine) as an important herbal ingredient to lower blood pressure. To maximize the therapeutic effect of this flower, the Chinese includes it into their diet by making a tea out of it as a long-term preventative measure for different cardiovascular issues, such as heart attacks and strokes, as well as atherosclerosis.

With a high level of beta-carotene and subsequently vitamin A, chrysanthemum tea is a natural supplement to protect against blurry vision, retinal neuropathy, cataracts and macular degeneration.
