(NaturalNews) Study after study has confirmed the benefits of regular meditation for mood, stress levels and overall health -- but did you know that it can boost your brain power as well?

Indeed, numerous studies have shown that just a few minutes of meditation daily can produce significant cognitive benefits. One such study, published in the Journal of Consciousness and Cognition in April 2010, found that meditating for 20 minutes per day caused study participants to do significantly better on cognitive tests than the control group after just four days.

The meditation group (which practiced a simple concentration meditation composed of simply focusing on the breath) performed better on all timed tests, in some cases as much as 10 times better than the control group. They showed improvements in concentration, memory and visual attention.

Other studies have found similar results, while studies conducted on seniors have shown that a regular meditation practice reduces age-related cognitive decline and memory loss, and can even increase the volume of gray matter in the brain.
