The gut microbiome plays a Key role in metabolizing flavonoids to enhance their cardioprotective effects“–Paul Ebeling

According to research, flavonoid-rich foods such as pears, apples, berries, and wine affect blood pressure levels positively, a connection that is to some extent due to gut microbiome factors.

The gut microbiome plays an important part in the metabolization of flavonoids for enhancing their cardioprotective effects, and this research offers evidence to suggest these blood pressure-reducing effects are possible with making simple modifications to the daily eating plan.

Flavonoids are compounds naturally found in vegetables, fruits, and plant-based foods which include chocolate, tea, and wine, and have been found in earlier studies to provide various health benefits. The bacteria of the digestive tract, or the gut microbiome, plays an important part in breaking down the flavonoids.

The study was comprised of 904 individuals 25 to 82 anni, and 57% of them were male. The individual’s food consumption, and also gut microbiome and blood pressure levels were evaluated with regular clinical and molecular phenotyping follow-up assessments.

The analysis found:

  • Individuals with the highest flavonoid-rich food intake, which included pears, apples, berries, and red wine, had lower levels of systolic blood pressure, and also greater gut microbiome diversity in comparison to the individuals with the lowest flavonoid-rich food intake.
  • About 15.2% of the flavonoid-rich food and systolic blood pressure association could be due to the gut microbiome diversity.
  • Consuming 1.6 1-cup portions of berries daily was related to an average decrease in systolic blood pressure of 4.1 mm Hg, and around 12% of the association was due to gut microbiome factors.
  • Drinking 2.8 x 125 ml glasses of red wine wkly was related to a 3.7 mm Hg reduction in systolic blood pressure on average, of which 15% could be due to the gut microbiome.
