AHA (American Heart Association) experts reviewed dozens of studies analyzing eight different types of meditation and their effects on various heart disease risk factors and outcomes, from stress to a heart attack. The data isn’t conclusive enough to justify a recommendation for or against meditation. But it can be considered in addition to existing standard treatment for heart problems, like losing weight.

People can include meditation in their heart-healthy strategy, as long as they know that the data is not yet conclusive. While more studies are needed, experts agree that the new findings are extremely encouraging.
