Red wine and blood pressure medication

According to recent studies, eating more foods strong in flavonoids, such as berries, apples, tea, and red wine, can lower blood pressure.

According to a study, drinking three glasses of red wine each week can help decrease blood pressure.

In a study conducted by Queen's University in Belfast and Kiel University in Germany, a higher intake of foods high in flavonoids, such as berries, apples, tea, and red wine, has been related to reduced blood pressure.

Moderation is crucial. According to studies, three glasses of red wine per week was the ideal amount, while 80g of berries per day was advised.

The study concentrated on the process by which the flavonoids in those foods and beverages are broken down by gut microorganisms, leading to a reduction in blood pressure.

Lead researcher Professor Aedin Cassidy stated that this study "provides evidence to suggest that these blood pressure-lowering effects are achievable with simple changes to the daily diet." "Our gut microbiome plays a key role in metabolizing flavonoids to enhance their cardioprotective effects," he added.

More than 900 people in Germany took part in the analysis.

Although previous studies have demonstrated that flavonoids can enhance heart health, researchers said that this is the first time their relationship with decreased blood pressure has been clarified.

The findings of the study were released in the American Heart Association magazine Hypertension.
