In brief: Low blood pressure

Trendelenburg position helps increase blood flow back towards the heart.
In situations where you have low blood pressure from lets say, loss of blood, the position increases flow back towards the core of our body so that whatever blood you have left can be distributed to more critical organs (brain ).
