5 Minute Breathing Workout Lowers Blood Pressure as much as Exercise and Drugs


The prospect of cardiovascular disease is daunting. It’s the leading cause for death and it affects about 65% off all American adults today who have high blood pressure but don’t even do enough physical activity to help combat this risk factor! However, just five minutes daily can make a difference-a breathing exercise called “strength training” your diaphragm which has been found in recent research studies as being linked with lower rates on chronic diseases like diabetes or heart problems when done correctly every single day.

The study, published June 29 in the Journal of the American Heart Association, provides the strongest evidence yet that the ultra-time-efficient manoeuvre known as High-Resistance Inspiratory Muscle Strength Training (IMST) could play a key role in helping aging adults fend off cardiovascular disease – the nation’s leading killer.

Additionally, in a recent study, subjects who took part in the treatment group saw an improvement of 45% when it came to their vascular endothelial function or how well they could expand themselves after being stimulated. They also had significant increases with levels nitric oxide which is key for dilating arteries and preventing plaque buildup.
