Dr. Samadi: Valentine's Romance Boosts Heart Health

Don't scoff at the romantic sentiments behind St. Valentine's Day — because they're good for your health, according to Dr. David Samadi, chairman of urology and chief of robotic surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital.

Samadi told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV that falling in love and being in a long-term relationship can be better for your heart.

"With marriage comes a lot of stability, meaning that you don't have the anxiety of being out there in all these clubs and nightlife, staying out all night, drinking alcohol, smoking, dealing with marijuana," Samadi said.

"Being married is a wonderful thing if you're with the right person and also it brings a lot of stability. The anxiety is less, you get to sleep more, you have a better sex life supposedly, and on and on.

'[Those] are factors that will help with your healthy life. So [a] good marriage means [a] good heart and healthy life."

Samadi also says that moderate exercise is often better than strenuous exercise.

"The problem with strenuous exercise is that you put tremendous amount of pressure on your joints and your bones," he said.

"Moderate exercise is tolerable; you can do it three times a week. You really don't want to pound those knees and shoulders and joints and end up causing more problems in the future."
