it can be an alternative option for patients who are financially burdened since these herbal plants can be found within reach aside from the lowering effect in the lipid levels thereby decreasing the risk for developing atherosclerosis. There were 53 participants who were divided into 2 groups namely the sour teat group (ST group) and black tea group (BT group). which was boiled for 20-30 minutes. Results showed no significant change in lipid levels in the BT group but in the ST group. twice a day in the morning and night. LDL. With these results it revealed a decrease in atherosclerosis development. Iran. Patients were instructed to drink one glass of decoction. . Its therapeutic effect was due to the presence of hibiscus acid and hydroxycitric acid which have strong inhibition effects on pancreatic amylase where there would now be inhibition in the breakdown of starch or glycogen to glucose thereby decreasing the excess circulating glucose in the body. SUMMARY Sour tea also called Roselle here in our country is an herbal plant which mainly has therapeutic effect on our Diabetic clients. Blood tests were done at the beginning of the study to measure their lipid levels and then compare it with the blood tests after the study. a significant decrease in total cholesterol.Effects of Sour Tea (Hibiscus Sabdariffa) on Lipid profile And Lipoprotein in Patients with Type II Diabetes I. With these known results. We all know that Diabetes is a disease where there a deficiency in insulin secretion or decreased sensitivity of organs to the produced insulin. Contributory factors to this disease include atherosclerosis or the deposition of plaques which would be the main focus of the therapeutic effects of sour tea. triglycerides and increase in HDL levels. This study was conducted in Yazd Diabetes Research Center.

Other preparation for sour tea can also be explored aside from decoctions. III.C. community folks can be taught on how to utilize their effects on their advantage especially if they are from far flung areas where they don¶t have the time or capacity to come in an urban area to seek consult to a physician. With the presence of readily available herbal plants. OBJECTIVE: Oxidative stress is a serious complication in diabetic patients. NURSING RESEARCH It would be better if side effects of sour tea were also included so other researchers can explore more on these and use this study as a springboard. D. Comparison of Sour and Black Tea Consumption on the Serum Lipid Oxidizability in Diabetic Patients. LOCAL SETTING (Philippine Setting) Here in our tropical country especially here in the cordillera. Awareness is very important to empower and enhance our fellow community on health consciousness and resourcefulness and remove their intuition of µmedical treatment¶ as very hard to achieve. CLIENT For our family client. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of sour tea and black tea on invitro copper induced serum lipids oxidizability in diabetic . there are thousand family species of plants which some have therapeutic effect and some have none. REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE A. I can share to them the contents of this research by having health teaching on how to make decoction if they have sour tea around their backyard especially if someone in the family has high lipid levels. E. If other herbal plants are also found in their backyard I can teach them on how to utilize them on their advantage making them more resourceful.

To compare the antihypertensive effectiveness of sour tea (ST. it increased from 41. Lipid oxidation was followed by the formation of conjugated dienes.4±11. The intervention had no statistically significant effect on the mean of diastolic BP (DBP) in either the ST or BT group. Their blood pressure (BP) was measured on days 0. 15 and 30 of the study. after added Cu2+. Fasting blood samples were taken at the beginning and end of the study for evaluation of serum lipid oxidizability.8 mm Hg at the beginning of the study to 112.01). whereas in the BT group. The mean of systolic BP (SBP) in the ST group decreased from 134.001).9 to 127.9±11. The effects of sour tea (Hibiscus sabdariffa) on hypertension in patients with type II diabetes. The patients were randomly allocated to the ST and BT groups and instructed to drink ST and BT infusions two times a day for 1 month. whereas this measure changed from 118.3±8.5±9.7 mm Hg (P-value=0. were recruited in the study. In . in diluted serum. CONCLUSION: Our finding revealed that sour tea or black tea consumption does not affect the quantitative parameters of serum lipid oxidation.7 mm Hg after 1 month (P-value <0.7 to 47.2 to 34.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this sequential double-blind randomized controlled clinical trial. this doubleblind randomized controlled trial was carried out. The mean pulse pressure (PP) of the patients in the ST group decreased from 52.2±12.3 mm Hg (P-value <0. without taking antihypertensive or antihyperlipidaemic medicines.
