What’s This Research About?

Despite all the reported benefits of practicing meditation, the molecular mechanisms underlying mind-body practices remain poorly understood.

Prior studies have shown how lifestyle factors (like exercising) can alter gene activity in real-time. In this study, the authors reviewed previously published papers about the molecular mechanisms involved in meditation practices that influence well-being. Specifically, they wanted to know if mindful practices affect epigenetics to alter gene expression.
