High Salt Consumption May Destroy Certain Gut Bacteria
High salt consumption may destroy a certain type of gut bacteria and this could be a reason for a high blood pressure, according to a new study, led by the scientists from the Experimental and Clinical Research Center and Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin, Germany.
In the course of the research, a team of researchers discovered that a version of Lactobacillus, a type of gut bacteria found in fermented food, is destroyed when they are fed a high-salt food. This food also was a reason for the high blood pressure in mice.
Lead researcher of the study Prof. Dominik N. Müller says: “We should start to see our gut microbiome as a viable target for treating conditions that we know are aggravated by salt, such as high blood pressure and inflammation.”
