    The Study Related To Frequent Napping Reveals Worrying Truth

    Napping leads to severe problems

    According to the new study published in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension, frequent napping will likely lead to hypertension and stroke. In the study data of 358,451 individuals between the age of 40 and 69 living in the UK were analyzed.

    The collection of information happened in UK Biobank which included participants from 2006 to 2010. Urine, blood, saliva samples, and self-reported lifestyle information collection happened to conduct during the study. Napping frequency-related questions were also a part of the study.

    They discovered that 12% of people who were frequently napping will develop hypertension. And about 24% of the people who already have hypertension will likely have a stroke much earlier. People under 60 who are taking frequent naps increased their probability of developing hypertension by 20%. Risk factors include smoking and daily alcohol consumption. Not only just snoring and insomnia but everything which disrupts sleep are risk factors.

    A Sleep Expert Explained The Findings

    The findings explained

    Michael A. Grandner, Ph.D., MTR, is a sleep expert and also co-author of the American Heart Association’s new Life’s Essential 8 cardiovascular health score in a release for the study. He explained the findings of the study.

    He said, “The findings may be because, although taking a nap itself is not harmful, many people who take naps may do so because of poor sleep at night. Poor sleep at night is associated with poorer health, and naps are not enough to make up for that. This study echoes other findings that generally show that taking more naps seems to reflect increased risk for problems with heart health and other issues.”
