The Vagus Nerve: An Unexpected Key to Better Performance
Vaginas are not just used for reproduction, but they have many other functions besides it. They play a vital role in our health. A healthy vagus nerve helps us to feel good physically and mentally. It is the most powerful of all nerves because it controls every bodily function from breathing to digestion to heart rate. The vagus nerve is responsible for sending messages between your brain and body.
In fact, it is the only one of the nerves that is directly connected with your central nervous system (CNS). It connects to all parts of your body including organs like kidneys, lungs, liver and skin.
It’s main job is to control blood pressure and heartbeat. If you don’t have a functioning vagus nerve then you might experience problems such as high blood pressure or irregular heartbeat. You could even die due to these issues if they aren’t treated properly.
If you want to improve your physical condition, you need to work on improving your vagus nerve. Here are some tips on how to do so:
1) Take a look at the video below which shows how the vagus nerve works.
