How fast does your body send information?

The nervous system has to send information incredibly fast to coordinate all the systems in the body. If your brain sent a message to move your big toe how fast would that message travel in miles per hour?

The human nervous system communicates at approximately 270 mph. This is what allows your body to coordinate all of your organs at the same time.  Even with all that speed it seems like a daunting task to coordinate every organ and tissue at the same time.  Well the good thing is that you don’t have to think about it.  The Autonomic Nervous System does all this for you.  This system runs everything from digestion to body temperature.

This is why it’s important to have a nervous system that is free of interference. Nerve interference can slow down or interrupt the nerve impulses that keep your body running smoothly.
