Reuters reports:

Practicing a particular type of meditation twice a day can significantly reduce blood pressure, according to an analysis of existing research on the technique.

The blood pressure reductions associated with regular practice of transcendental meditation, or TM, would translate to a 12-15 percent reduced risk of dying from cardiovascular causes and a 15-20 percent lower risk of stroke, Dr. James W. Anderson, the study’s lead author, told Reuters Health.
