Meditation shown to lower blood pressure

A new study published in the American Journal of Hypertension has shown that meditative practice can have a measurably positive influence on lowering high blood pressure and improving overall cardiovascular health. The study involved nearly 300 individuals, about half of whom meditated regularly. Preliminary results suggest that the meditators’ group was able to substantially lower blood pressure and evidence other positive effects in comparison to the control group.
