Microbial Diversity and Abundance of Parabacteroides Mediate the Associations Between Higher Intake of #Flavonoid-Rich Foods and Lower Blood #Pressure

We assessed, for the first time, to what extent the composition of the gut microbiome might explain the cross-sectional association of habitual flavonoid and flavonoid-rich food intake with systolic and diastolic blood pressure (BP) in a community-based sample (N=904) from Northern Germany. Gut microbiome composition was sequenced from 16S ribosomal RNA genes. Higher total flavonoid …
