Meditation is known to reduce stress and the calming effect of a meditative practice often leads to other, more substantial health benefits, including improved cardiovascular health. Meditation produces a deep state of relaxation and tranquility which, in clinical settings, has reduced levels of the stress-related hormone cortisol in the bloodstream. The meditative state slows the heart rate and regulates breathing, promoting deep relaxation. Many patients using meditation for heart health have shown reductions in stress levels, which often translates into lower blood pressure and decreased incidence of both heart attack and stroke.
