How to live longer: Meditation linked to lower cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar

In a randomised controlled trial, 60 older adults with subjective cognitive decline were asked to meditate for 12 minutes each day for 12 weeks.

The study, published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s disease, showed that meditation had a significant improvement in subjective memory function.

Participants in the study showed improvements in sleep, mood, stress, well-being and quality of life.

The substantial gains observed in memory and cognition were then maintained for a further three months post trial.
