The Gut Impact on Heart Health

Growing evidence is revealing a link between gut health and cardiovascular wellbeing. A recent 2023 review explored how the trillions of microbes residing in the gut impact heart health. It found that gut bacteria play a crucial role in regulating cholesterol levels, inflammation, and blood pressure – all key risk factors for heart disease.

Getting To The Heart of It

Regulating Cholesterol Levels- Gut bacteria have the potential to influence cholesterol production and absorption. They can potentially help to decrease LDL cholesterol levels (an indicator of high cholesterol) and raise HDL cholesterol levels (an indicator of healthy cholesterol).

Managing Inflamation-  The gut microbiome plays a key role in systemic inflammation, a significant factor in the progression of heart disease. Numerous gut bacteria strains, such as Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus casei, and Bifidobacterium longum, have shown promising potential in reducing inflammation within the body.

Blood Pressure Regulation- Numerous gut bacteria strains have been
found to help influence nitric oxide production, a vasodilator that relaxes blood vessels. Studies suggest that strains like Lactobacillus reuteri and Bifidobacterium animalis lactis may be helpful, potentially increasing nitric oxide production and influencing other pathways involved in blood vessel health.
