WHAT CAUSES HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE?
“Emerging evidence suggesting that disruption of the gut microbiota, known as gut dysbiosis, can have adverse effects on blood pressure.”
“Previous studies from our lab have shown that the composition of the gut microbiota in animal models of hypertension, such as the SHRSP (spontaneously hypertensive stroke-prone rat) model, is different from that in animals with normal blood pressure,” said Durgan, assistant professor of anesthesiology at Baylor.
Fecal transplant of a person with high blood pressure into a person with low blood pressure gives that person high blood pressure
CAN YOU MANIPULATE THE MICROBIOME TO BRING BLOOD PRESSURE DOWN?
Two groups: no food restrictions
Every other day fast

2. What’s more important? How long do you fast or what do you break your fast with?
3. Intermittent fasting and belly fat- NEW STUDIES
“Now, a randomized controlled trial published in JAMA claims that IF has no significant weight loss benefit and a substantial negative effect on muscle mass.”
141 patients (sex? age?)
16 hr fast
Two groups: 16 hr fast/ 3 meals a day (no snacks
Challenges with the study:
-NO recommendations about diet or physical activity
-Both groups lost weight/ IF group lost more weight
