Anger can harm your blood vessel function, study shows

·1 min

Feelings of anger have been found to have a negative impact on blood vessel health, according to a recent study. The research involved 280 participants who were given a task to recall feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety, or neutrality for eight minutes. The study found that while sadness and anxiety didn’t show significant changes in vascular health markers, anger did. The research revealed that anger can make it harder for blood vessels to dilate and affect their ability to repair themselves. The study suggests that chronic anger could lead to long-term adverse effects on blood vessels. The researchers recommend finding ways to process anger and seek behavioral therapies to mitigate its impact.
