Promotes Cellular Health

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Man-Meditating-at-SunsetResearchers at the University of California at Davis and the University of California at San Francisco have established a link between increased cellular health and meditation. Theirs is the first study to suggest such a link, indicating that the positive well-being derived from regular meditation causes an increase in the enzyme that contributes to cellular health. By learning how to better cope with stress and maintain a sense of well-being, meditators seem to trigger the growth of the telomerase enzyme, which is associated with the prolonged health of cells. Researchers were able to trace this increased enzyme growth to meditation’s effects on individuals’ levels of neuroticism and perceived self-control through enhanced mindfulness.
