Love makes the heart grow stronger: Women with a steady heart rate have a greater chance of being in a relationship, researchers say

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scientists discovered that women with so-called low heart rate variability were nearly twice as likely to be in a relationship at the end of their six-month study as those with a high rate.

Women with a steady heart rate have a greater chance of being in a relationship, according to research.

One theory is that large variations in heart rate may be linked to the nervous system involved with emotions.

The researchers, from Lakehead University in Canada, told Biological Psychology magazine: ‘Perhaps it is our heart and not our head that determines which of us will find love after all.’

Other research has shown that being generous to others can also help fight heart disease.

This is because altruistic acts decrease stress, which can contribute to the condition.

Volunteering can also help reduce blood pressure, having a positive affect on general wellbeing.
