Yoga can lower blood pressure

(May 15, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Pennsylvania - According to research presented at the annual scientific meeting of the American Society of Hypertension, yoga may lower blood pressure. Researchers randomized a group of healthy adults, randomizing participants to either practice yoga 2-3 times a week for 24 weeks or to eat a controlled diet, with no yoga, over the same time period. Results showed that those practicing yoga lost an average of three points on both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, while those on the diet only lost an average of one point.
