The truth is that there have been very few proper scientific investigations to provide ample evidence for such claims.

However, many testimonials both mental and physical do show that there are some benefits from wearing the rudraksha. If the people of South Asia with an ancient civilization have worn and used rudrakshas for centuries, there has to be some truth behind such claims.
