The most common physiological effects of meditation are reduced blood pressure, lower pulse rate, decreased metabolic rate and changes in the concentration of serum levels of various substances.

Meditation is a good medicine to reduce your tension and keep mind fresh. It may also help to stop stress and anxiety relief. Diabetic patient meditate regularly can reduce blood sugar level and also reduce the blood pressure.

I'm particularly interested in the point about meditation reducing blood pressure, as I have issues with that.

I'd also add that from what I remember of an article I read years ago, it sounds like meditation has similar health benefits that have been noted when musicians are playing music. That may be of interest to people following the thread about meditating with music.

That's right. Meditation also quiets the central nervous system and slows the breathing to less than half its normal rate. As all the body processes relax, the meditator experiences a state of profound rest (even deeper than sleep), and much energy is conserved and accumulated for later use. That's why not like ordinary rest which often diminished our alertness, meditation improves our reaction time and motor skills.
