Abstract:Cortisol is an important biomarker of stress. Cortisol circardian rhythms in individuals indicate health and stress reactivity. Mediation is increasingly being used for stress reduction. This project compares resting cortisol levels through the day in long term meditators versus non-meditators. Saliva samples from subjects were used to determine cortisol values.
