The Heart and Circulatory Physiology published a study which discovered that this method really works.
Take a look at how you can perform it:
First of all, you need to sit on the floor and extend your feet forward with your toes pointing up. After that, try to reach out and touch the tip of your toes with your hands. Your heart is healthy and in a great condition if you are flexible enough to touch your toes. You don’t have a heart problem.
This study which involved about 526 participants between 20 and 83 years old, was conducted in the USA (North Texas). While the participants were performing this method, their blood pressure was measured and the arteries and the heart were closely observed.
At the end of the study, the researchers discovered a connection between the artery elasticity and the body, especially in participants aged over 40. Moreover, they also confirmed that people who have heart disease are not able to touch their toes.
If you want to know whether you have a heart problem, you should definitely try this amazing method. If you can touch your toes while you are sitting straight, your heart is healthy and flexible, too. On the other hand, if you are not able to touch them, we suggest you consult your doctor immediately.
