Yoga Research related to heart exercise

It has been revealed from various research studies that chronic stress is the main factor of heart and other systemic disorders. Sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve controls helps in evaluating the heart rate variability (HRV) due to stress and anxiety.

A research was conducted to observe the effect of regular yogic practices and self-discipline in reducing body fat and elevated lipids in CAD patients. In this study one hundred seventy (170) subjects, of both sexes having coronary artery disease were randomly divided in to two groups in yoga group and in non-yoga group, Body fat testing and estimation of lipid profile were done of the both groups at zero time and after six months of yogic intervention in yoga group and without yogic intervention in non yoga group. Duration of the program for study was 35-40min/day. It was concluded from this study that there was significant reduction in the total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, DBP, SBP, and heart rate after a regular practice of Yoga for 6-month period. Therefore yogic practice is beneficial for cardiac patients and it reduces the risk of coronary artery disease.
