More and more research unfolds showing the benefits of meditation. But did you know studies have found mind-body intervention (MBI) exercises like yoga, Tai Chi and meditation can actually
change your gene expression?
There are some great researchers bridging the gap between psychology, neuroscience and molecular biology. These great people keep proving why we should all be taking time to stop to do these exercises for better health and quality of life.
In a recent article from journal Frontiers in Immunology, there is considerable evidence for the effectiveness of mind–body interventions (MBI) in improving mental and physical health. There is a molecular signature for those how incorporate these mindful practices into daily life.
846 participants from 18 individual studies performed by university experts expose outlines of molecular changes that happened to the body when participant performed regular MBI exercises.
Using bioinformatics analysis in MBI research, the finds show a direct association with gene expression and effects on the immune systems, brain and bio make-up of the body.
One of the most exciting finds is the using MBIs reverses the pro-inflammatory gene by decreasing the production of NK-kB (nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells) which is a complex protein involved in stress, cytokines and free radical stimuli.
Incorrect regulation of NF-κB has been linked to cancer, autoimmune diseases, viral infections and improper immune function.
Most people think that exercises such as meditation solely correlate to mental wellness but everyone can also benefit from a molecular level to improve all aspects of body health.
Meditation is free, can be done in ten minutes per day and has amazing health benefits. So why doesn’t everyone do it?
You should give it a go now. Check out some of these free guided meditations and get all the benefits from excellent health, life performance and change your genetic code for the better.
