The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) plays a vital role in stress management, recovery, and overall health.
And Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is the best non-invasive method for assessing its overall functioning – not surprising, since the heart is largely regulated by the ANS.
HRV measures the difference in duration between each heartbeat (or length as seen on an EKG readout).
You might think a perfectly regular heartbeat would be the sure sign of ideal health. But in fact, the opposite is true: the greater the variation, the healthier you are, and the lower your risk factor for many chronic conditions: cardiovascular disease; anxiety, depression, and other psychological disorders; and inflammation that can lead to premature aging.
A high HRV score is an indication of a balanced ANS – and an index of the heart’s ability to readily adapt to changing stress.
NuCalm® can improve your HRV score, hence your general health.
Research shows that as the relaxing effect of NuCalm® slows the heart rate, it effectively raises its variability by placing the ANS into a state of parasympathetic dominance (the mind and body’s “rest-and-repair” mode) within minutes of application.
Used consistently, NuCalm® can help establish and maintain ANS balance over the long term, gradually elevating your HRV score even more. A NuCalm® routine is a key component of good stress management, efficient recovery, and optimal overall health.
