Do you remember the last time you were physically active on purpose?? IE: went to the gym, jogged or even just simply went for a walk? Did you know that new research shows that exercise helps protect older adults' brains from memory loss and mental decline. In fact the UofM found, in their research that physical fitness reverses brain shrinkage. which is tied to Alzheimer's disease. 34 inactive participants ranging in age 61-68 engaged in a 12-week exercise regimen and the findings were impressive to say the least. They were shown to have improvements with their heart and lung function, and also the brain increased in thickness in the region that typically shrinks from Alzheimer's. You can find the study published in the Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society.

 

I Hope you found this helpful and will consider the benefits of being more active and decide to get moving and save your brain.
