In this video, we’re going to talk about how your pulse rate may indicate how long you’ll live.

There are other better indicators of your mortality risk, such as the CAC test, but you can test your resting pulse rate quickly and easily at home to help check in with your body. Why not give it a try?

Based on a meta-analysis, the risk of mortality from all causes is increased by 9% for every 10 beats per minute of resting heart rate.

For example, if your resting heart rate is 45 beats per minute, this would indicate a low risk of mortality, while 90 beats per minute would indicate a significantly higher risk of mortality.

Athletes tend to have very low resting heart rates because of their physical fitness. Those with coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, and high blood pressure tend to have much higher resting heart rates.

Keep in mind that if you’re on a medication that brings down your heart rate, the indication of mortality may be inaccurate.

One study showed that women with a resting heart rate greater than 76 bpm have a 26% increased risk of heart attack compared to those with a lower pulse rate.

Measuring your resting heart rate is easy. Simply use your fingers to feel your pulse and count each beat for one minute.

What controls your resting heart rate? This has to do with vagal tone—the activity of your vagus nerve and your parasympathetic nervous system.

Your parasympathetic nervous system is the part of your nervous system that is responsible for the “rest and digest” state. It helps your body recover after exercise.

The faster your pulse rate comes down to normal after exercise, the faster your recovery, which indicates better vagal tone.

You can strengthen your vagal tone with…
• Exercise (consistent and regular)
• Exercise recovery (give your body plenty of time to repair!)
• Sleep
• Fasting
• Low-carb diet (Healthy keto)
• Potassium
• Vitamin B1
• Vitamin D
• Lower your stress
