Study: Drinking Kefir Could Lower High Blood Pressure
Drinking kefir, fermented milk drink, has been proved to have many health benefits. In a new study, the scientists from Auburn University in Alabama, USA, and the University of Vila Velha in Espirito Santo, Brazil, explained how it can protect cardiovascular health.
For the study, they worked with a rat model trying to see if kefir’s probiotic properties could influence gut health and help to lower blood pressure.
After analysis of the received data, the scientists concluded that the rats who regularly consumed kefir for 9 weeks, showed lower levels of endotoxins, harmful substances that contribute to inflammation. These rats also demonstrated lower blood pressure and improved intestinal structure.
