In a new study it is found that midday nap is good to keep blood pressure levels lower and also keep an individual away from prescribed anti-hyperintensive medicines.


Details of the study were presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress.

A total of 200 men and 186 women were studied. The average age of all the participants was 61.4 years and they were suffering from arterial hypertension.

Researchers found those who had taken a nap during the noon had five percent lower average 24-hour ambulatory systolic BP than those who didn’t sleep in midday.

Even though the percentage decrease was low in the study, but in systolic blood pressure it makes a good difference and help in reducing the risk of cardiovascular events by up to 10 percent.

The researchers also found those who slept longer midday were more beneficial.

Apart from all these, it was confirmed from the study those who took nap during noon had to take less medicines.
