Adaptability of the heart

The adaptability of the heart (heart rate variability) describes the ability of the organism to change the frequency of the heartbeat and adapt it to any situation.


The heart is one of the most important organs in the human body. However, it does not beat exactly regularly like a clock, but slightly irregularly because the heart is constantly exposed to external and internal stimuli to which it has to constantly adapt.


The higher the HRV, the better the body can adjust to a wide variety of external and internal stimuli in a short time. On the other hand, a low HRV can indicate a health and age-related restriction.


The HRV is influenced, among other things, by age, psyche, as well as by heart rate, breathing and the level of training. But even within a day, the HRV can change due to a wide variety of environmental factors, such as noise and the internal physiological and biochemical processes in the body.
