Study Reveals Gene Expression Changes with Meditation

Study Reveals Gene Expression Changes with Meditation | Mental health | Scoop.it
With evidence growing that meditation can have beneficial health effects, scientists have sought to understand how these practices physically affect the body.

 

A new study by researchers in Wisconsin, Spain, and France reports the first evidence of specific molecular changes in the body following a period of meditation.

 

After eight hours of practice, meditators showed a range of genetic and molecular differences, including altered levels of gene-regulating machinery and reduced levels of pro-inflammatory genes, which in turn correlated with faster physical recovery from a stressful situation.
