New Research Hints at a Link Between Psychedelics and Improved Heart Health

Psychedelics improve mental health, but can that translate into better physical health too?

A recent study found that people who have tried psychedelics at least once in their life had a 23% lower chance of heart disease and a 12% lower chance of diabetes in the past year.

Other research indicates that psychedelic use is tied to healthier lifestyle choices such as increased exercise, reduced smoking and alcohol consumption, and eating a balanced diet, so this may explain the findings.

The researchers also theorize that psychedelics could stimulate brain receptors that are linked to both mental and cardiometabolic health.
