Abstract
Two probiotic products containing either live Lactobacillus plantarum strain DSM 15313 or bilberries fermented by the same bacterial strain were tested for their antihypertensive potentials and their impact on the oral and the faecal microbiota in hypertensive adults. The results showed that consumption of the tested products for three months did not reduce the blood pressure in adults with hypertension. Neither the diversity nor the composition of the oral and faecal microbiota was significantly affected by the tested probiotic products. Moreover, the oral and the faecal microbiota remained generally stable over the intervention period of 3 months. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
