Meditation Reduces High Blood Pressure

19 Mar 2009

Iíve found more evidence as to why meditation helps so many people with high blood pressure.

The role of a chemical called lactate in our bodies

As we go about our day our bodies produce a substance called lactate. When levels of lactate increase in the body due to stress, a person can experience symptoms that are associated with tension and high blood pressure. Apart from a physiological reaction there is also underlying anxiety as well.

How meditation reduces lactate levels

Research shows that lactate concentrate is reduced in people who meditate four times as much as people who are just resting.
