Most often people relate chanting with religion and spirituality. Yes, it is an inseparable part of religion but there is more to it than that. Chanting is a combination of breath, sound and rhythm that helps in channelizing your energy. The mantras you chant have a psychological as well as a physiological effect on the body. No wonder why the elders make sure that we learn to chant mantras from a very early age! Everything that has been passed on to us from one generation to another has a meaning. Here are some ways by which chanting can improve your physical as well as mental health.
Health benefits of chanting
1) Improves immunity
Chanting some mantras tends to put pressure in the tongue, lips, vocal chords, palate and other connecting points. The vibration from the mantra is known to stimulate the hypothalamus which is a gland. It regulates several body functions including immunity and secretion of hormones that keep you happy. The happier you are the stronger is your immunity.
2) Keeps your mind calm down
Certain vibrating sounds of mantras help in stimulating the hormones that calm down the mind and relax the body. Chanting is said to help you concentrate and works as a tranquilizer for the mind.

According to studies and experts, those who chanted mantras had better concentration and an improved learning power. This is because when you chant, the resulting vibration helps in activating the chakras present on your face and head that are responsible for memory and concentration.
