New research shows that long term practitioners of The Transcendental Meditation Program have significantly lower free radical levels.
Online PR News – 26-September-2009 – – The chart below shows free radicals measured in three different groups; practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation Program, practitioners of other meditation programs, and people not practicing meditation at all.
Practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation Program showed a significant decrease in free radicals at each area measured. Practitioners of other meditation techniques also showed consistently decreased free radicals, although not to the same degree.
The Transcendental Meditation Program has also been proven to increase lifespan. During a 17 year longitudinal study practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation technique survived longer when compared with a control group.
As well as keeping people alive longer, the Transcendental Meditation Program also helps to improve many aspects of the physiology that normally degrade with age. Research has shown that practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation Technique are particularly less susceptible to stress related conditions like high blood pressure, weight gain, and memory loss.
