Love to take short naps during the day?, Good news, you have a healthy heart

Love to take short naps during the day? Well, there is some good news for you if you do, because a new study has found out that a daytime nap can lower the risk of heart attacks or strokes.

The new research discovered that a daytime nap taken once or twice a week can lower the risk of fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular disease complications.

Researchers from University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland recently conducted a study on this. They looked at the relation between napping frequency, the duration and risk of cardiovascular disease complications.

The university took data from around 3,462 people between the ages of 35 and 75 for over five years for the study. The report found out that the people who occasionally took a nap; once or twice a week for five minutes to an hour, had 48 per cent less chances of having a heart attack, stroke or heart failure.

However, the study did not find any association between more frequent napping or duration and cardiovascular diseases. The study was published in Heart, the journal of the British Cardiovascular Society.

The conclusion of the study said, “Subjects who nap once or twice per week have a lower risk of incident CVD events, while no association was found for more frequent napping or napping duration.”

It added, “Nap frequency may help explain the discrepant findings regarding the association between napping and CVD events.”
