Bananas and Raisins: Home Remedies Help Lower Heart Rate

(NaturalNews) The heart rate, also known as pulse rate, is the number of times the heart beats every minute. The normal heart rate for an adult is between 60 and 100 beats a minute, according to the University of Virginia Health System, although athletes can have a rate as low as 40 beats per minute. The heart rate is important because it measures the rhythm of the heart as well as the strength of the blood flow. A high heart rate otherwise known as tachycardia (or more than 100 beats per minute consistently in an adult) can lead to heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease as well as to produce symptoms such as sweating, nausea or vomiting. Common foods, such as raisins and bananas, can lower heart rate, as well as yoga and exercise.
