  • It lowers blood pressure, so you might not need medication if you are hypertensive.

  • It gives you more energy, so you can enjoy more activities.

  • It raises HDL cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of arteriosclerosis.

  • It lowers incidence of heart disease, by reducing stress.

  • It increases your metabolism, which helps decrease body fat.
