Resting Heart Rate: How to Keep Your Heart in Low Gear
Wearable smart technology devices are very trendy at the moment.

But, while these devices are being used to track sleep hours and steps, their most important function is being overlooked: your resting heart rate.

The American Journal of Cardiology showed that when resting heart rate is above 84, it proved to be a significant independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

They found that every 10 to 22 additional beats per minute in resting heart rate raised the likelihood of death by 16 percent.

How can you ensure that you maintain a low resting heart?

Jim LaValle, RPH, MS, shares the importance of resting heart rate and the ways to accurately monitor your resting heart rate.
