The gut microbiota regulates blood pressure

Beyond gut feelings: how the gut microbiota regulates blood pressure


Hypertension is the leading risk factor for heart disease and stroke. The cause of a heart attack is complicated, but eating habits in life are important reasons.

Obviously, the intake of fruits and vegetables are good for health. The inner link is that it is good for the gut microbiota to regulate blood pressure.

In this Review, we describe the mechanisms by which the gut microbiota and its metabolites, including short-chain fatty acids, trimethylamine N-oxide, and lipopolysaccharides, act on downstream cellular targets to prevent or contribute to the pathogenesis of hypertension.

In a word, there gut microbiota have great potential!
