Lower Blood Pressure in 5 MINUTES?
If you want to tackle your heart disease risk, you have to stay on top of your blood pressure.
High blood pressure is a silent killer that starves your heart of the blood and nutrients it needs. The resulting damage is what ultimately can lead to a heart attack.
But if you’ve tried — and failed — to get your blood pressure under control, then you’ll definitely want to keep reading.
A new study revealed a simple, 5-minute exercise that can lower your blood pressure — and ultimately lower your heart attack risk.
Exercise is a great way to get your blood pressure under control.
The problem is that more than half of all people with high blood pressure just don’t do it.
The good news?
You don’t have to.
For a study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, researchers evaluated the impact of high-resistance IMST — inspiratory muscle strength training.
It’s like strength training… for your breathing muscles.
This study included adults from 50-79 years old with elevated blood pressure.
Half did high-resistance IMST exercises for 5 minutes per day, 6 days per week. The other half did a low-resistance placebo exercise.
After six weeks, systolic blood pressure dropped by an average of 9 points.
How significant is this 9-point reduction?
To put it in perspective, this means that these breathing exercises are as effective as common blood pressure drugs — and they’re even MORE effective than walking 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week!
These 5-minute breathing exercises also led to a 45 percent improvement in endothelial function, and reduced inflammation and oxidative stress.
All of these are risk factors for heart attacks.
Imagine that — a simple way to reduce your blood pressure and heart risk without taking a single drug.
To perform high-resistance IMST, you inhale through a handheld device that provides resistance to your breathing.
You can purchase one for less than $50 and can do it not only in the comfort of your home, but in the comfort or your favorite chair.
Give it a try and see what 5 minutes per day can do for your heart — and your health.
