Have you ever wondered if your heart is healthy? It’s very important to know that, because you can thus prevent a heart attack.
People who are flexible and can supple enough to reach their toes have a healthy heart, according to a recent research.
It’s a very simple method. Just sit on the floor, stretch your legs and your toes pointing up. From this position try to reach your toes with your hands. If you are flexible enough to touch them, that means that your heart is flexible and healthy.
In the study were involved 526 participants aged 20 to 83, from USA. While they were performing this method, it was measured their blood pressure and closely observed their arteries and heart activity.
At the end, the study found that participants with heart disease couldn’t touch their toes. It was confirmed that there is a link between the body and the artery elasticity, especially in participants over 40.
You can also perform this method at home and check if your heart is still in a good condition. If you are not able to touch your toes, we suggest you to visit your cardiologist.
