Heart failure isn’t just common. It’s SHOCKINGLY common.
Some 6.2 million Americans are struggling with it right now. If those folks formed their own state, it would rank 18th in population – just behind Indiana and just ahead of Missouri.
And since heart failure plays a role in 380,000 U.S. deaths every year – equal to the population of Cleveland – trust me when I tell you that’s NOT a state you want to live in. So today, I’ve got your ticket to a new location.
The latest research reveals a hidden factor when it comes to heart failure risk. And surprisingly, it’s not in the heart itself. It’s in your bedroom.
Scientists have identified FIVE FACTORS for good sleep. Miss out on them, and your heart risk jump.
But if you hit all five of those targets, something incredible happens – something no drug in the world can promise. Your risk of heart failure could plummet by a remarkable 42 percent.
The nighttime keys to heart protection
You likely already know you need seven to eight hours of sleep every night. Sure, you may not be getting it, but you know that’s the old rule of thumb.
However, that’s not the whole picture. How WELL you sleep is as critical as how LONG you sleep. And that’s what this new study nails down, at least as far as your heart’s concerned.
The folks with the lowest risk of heart failure have the following five factors in common. They…
- get 7-8 hours shuteye a night
- don’t snore
- wake up early
- don’t get tired during the day
- don’t have frequent insomnia
Eliminating each one of those factors can significantly cut your risk of heart failure. Just waking up early instead of sleeping in is linked to an eight percent lower risk, for example. While not suffering from daytime drowsiness is associated with a third of the risk.
But conquering all five together is even better than any single factor alone, cutting the risk of heart failure by up to 42 percent.
Solve this sleep issue to slash heart failure risk
So the key is clearly getting MORE and BETTER sleep.
You can start with insomnia busters such as melatonin and ashwagandha. But in this case, the true solution might be found in dodging one single common condition. Because folks with sleep apnea often have at least three and sometimes all five of those factors going wrong at once.
That’s the disorder where you repeatedly stop breathing for short periods while you sleep. Apnea is often marked by poor sleep, loud snoring, and daytime drowsiness, among other warning signs.
Most cases are caused by weight gain. And the good news is dropping a few pounds will often help ease sleep apnea or even cure it completely. And that could help send your risk for heart failure plummeting as well.
But there’s another trick you can try in the meantime, too. And I’ve got to warn you, it’s going to sound a little silly. But you’re just going to have to trust me on this one. Tongue exercises could make a world of difference.
I warned you it would seem strange. But think of it this way. A tongue workout is an exercise resolution that’s actually EASY to keep. And yes, there IS research to back it up.
A study found these simple mouth moves can help you breathe easier, stop snoring, and improve sleep apnea. And in the long run, that could translate into a lower heart failure risk.
