  One Major Effect of Gut Health on Blood Pressure A study has found that a gut with balanced microbiota is linked to lower blood pressure. Here are the foods that help you benefit from both.In a study published last month in the journal Hypertension, a group of biology, epidemiology, and public health researchers from Germany and Northern Ireland say they were the first to assess an interesting connection.

A tendency to continue since 42% of respondents plan to consume more in the coming years. Conversely, the share of the population consuming at least from time to time labeled "bio" marks the step, after having increased regularly for more than 20 years. Nearly 61% of the French bought "organic" products in 1998, 80% in 2011 and 87% in 2020, compared to 84% in 2021.
