Meditation improves health
Scientists have revealed that positive psychological changes that occur during meditation training are associated with greater activity of telomerase, an enzyme important for the long-term health of cells in the body.
The study by researchers at the University of California, Davis, and the University of California, San Francisco is the first to link positive well-being to higher telomerase.
The effect appears to be attributable to psychological changes that increase a person’s ability to cope with stress and maintain feelings of well-being.
