Hi, my name's Dr Warrick Bishop. I'm a cardiologist and welcome to my Healthy Heart Minute.
Who would've thought that a herbal tea could have given rise to problems with the heart or the cardiovascular system, in particular, elevated blood pressure. Well, believe it or not, it can, and it's worth knowing about licorice and licorice tea, which carries high amounts of licorice, can interact with the hormones within our own body that control blood pressure.
So, I've got a story about too much licorice tea giving rise to significant elevations of blood pressure in a woman who was unsuspecting. It took a little bit of detective work to figure out exactly what was behind this lady's raised blood pressure. Turned out to be her herbal tea.
If you'd like to know a little bit more about that interesting story and interesting relationship, check out the podcast attached to this video. Just click on the link and have a listen.
I'm gonna wish you the very best. Live as well as possible, for as long as possible. Take care and bye for now!
