Laugh Louder: How Laughter Benefits Your Heart Health?

They say laughter is the best medicine, but no one tells you exactly what it does to you. This adage, on the other hand, is one of the few that has practical application, particularly for heart health. In this article we will go deeper into the relevance of LOL and investigate the heart health benefits of laughter.

Stress, despair, and loneliness are all negative emotions that have a poor impact on heart health. Laughter, on the other hand, generates joyful hormones called endorphins, which block negative emotions and the cardio-vascular impact of the chemicals they emit.

6 ways laughter can improve your heart health You can reap the heart-healthy benefits of a good laugh for up to 24 hours after your chuckles and chortles. Here are a few of the advantages you'll enjoy with every laugh:

Reduce Your Stress Hormones Stress can tighten your blood vessels and reduce circulation Chronic stress can put you at risk for significant health problems like heart disease, blood clots, and heart attack. Laughter increases circulation and relaxes muscles. It helps to alleviate some of the physical symptoms of stress as well as few hazards to your heart's health. It's a terrific technique to alleviate anger, which is a typical stressor. (Remember Dr. Asthana from Munnabhai MBBS)

Lower Arterial Inflammation A good hearty laugh produces nitric oxide, a chemical that helps reduce inflammation and prevent plaque formation in your arteries. It could help the inner lining of your blood vessels to widen. In fact, laughing may be just as efficient at reducing inflammation as aerobic exercise, use of statins and other cholesterol-lowering drugs.

Boost Blood Flow When you laugh, your arteries dilate, allowing more blood to move around the body. Improved flow means that oxygen-rich blood is flowing freely through your heart, muscles, arms, and legs, thus lowering your risk of heart attack and other cardiovascular disorders.

Boost “Good” Cholesterol Levels If untreated, high LDL cholesterol (the bad kind) can lead to heart disease. Laughing has been shown to increase HDL cholesterol (the good stuff) in your body. The good cholesterol in your blood helps clean up the bad cholesterol out of your arteriesLaughter is great for all cardiovascular disease patients including diabetics, who could have lower HDL cholesterol levels.

Enhance Blood Vessel Function Laughter may cause endothelium, the inner lining of your blood vessels, to expand and increase blood flow. A healthy endothelium can help prevent atherosclerosis (blood vessel hardening) and cardiovascular disease.

Reduce your chances of developing heart disease Laughter has a long-lasting beneficial effect on your blood pressure and relaxes your body. Seeking out positive or humorous experiences can alter your physiology and assist you in staying healthier
