Cortisol Reduced Through Meditation

One thing you want to do is watch your cortisol levels and prevent them from getting too high. You can do this with various supplements. But probably one of the best ways to reduce cortisol, which is triggered by stress and is part of the response to stress, is to relax. Meditation is a form of relaxation that has been shown to reduce cortisol. An interesting article, Effect of Buddhist meditation on serum cortisol and total protein levels, blood pressure, pulse rate, lung volume and reaction time (Physiol Behav. 1991 Sep;50(3):543-8), concludes that "meditation produces biochemical and physiological changes" and significantly reduces serum (blood) cortisol.
