An Evidence-Based Solution

Over the past decade, the scientific literature has seen a phenomenal increase in the number and quality of research studies demonstrating the positive impacts of meditation. The success of meditation is directly correlated to a number of biometric ‘indicators’ - of which Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is considered to be one of the strongest.

Unyte was formerly Wild Divine, a true pioneer in mind-body technology, which sold tens of thousands of biofeedback devices in 60 countries over 15 years, and whose products were referenced in over 100 scientific journal articles. 

The Benefits of HRV Biofeedback

HRV is a measure of the variation in time between heartbeats and is considered to be a strong indicator of your meditative state. It has been shown through decades of research that a higher HRV correlates with an optimal, relaxed nervous system state, positive emotions, and improved health.

According to the research, HRV biofeedback may, as part of a healthy lifestyle, help in the following ways:

  • Improve ability to handle adversity or stressful situations
  • Decrease anxiety
  • Stress management
  • Reduce depression
  • Improve responses to anger-inducing stimuli
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Reduce pain
  • Improve gastrointestinal disorder symptoms
  • Improve mood and psychological well-being
  • Help fine-tune skills for optimal sports performance
