100,000 times a day is the amount your heart beats and scientists have discovered that every single beat of your heart manipulates your brain but, a healthy heart provides more than pulse which supplies blood to every part of your body.
New research has shown that the heart manipulates the brain via neurotransmitters and nerve pathways. The heart was considered by scientists as a simple blood pump but findings are showing that the heart can influence your needs, senses and deepest emotions concerning other people.
When you experience stress, you are afraid or fall in love, your pulse rate increases. You may feel the pulse of blood in your ears or the beating against the inside of your chest. Your heart let's you sense your emotions and that is why perhaps, people all over the world are of the opinion that emotions are based in the heart.
Science over the years has taught us that the heart is just a mechanical pump that exists to supply oxygen and nourishment to the body. Science told us that our heart was blindly obeying orders from the brain if our pulse rate increases when we fall in love but this view is gradually reversed.
The contractions of the heart according to new research is doing far more than just passing oxygen and nutrition through the body. The heart controls its own rhythm and the nerve that links to the brain means that the brain monitors heartbeats and influences them if necessary.
Our heartbeats sends rhythmic signals to the hearts muscles and are carefully coordinated by the body's own pacemaker which cooperates to ensure that our bodies are supplied with oxygen rich blood.
