Do you ever walked into a room and forget why you went in, or run into someone and forget their name? While exercise has long been appreciated as a way to strengthen muscles, trim fat and boost heart health, research continues to show just how much it impact it can have on brain health as we age.
A study, published in the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology, found that older adults who reported either light exercise, such as walking and yoga or no exercise at all experienced a cognitive decline equal to 10 more years of aging when compared to people who were moderate to intense exercisers.
Other research has shown that adults who ran on a treadmill for 45 minutes three times a week performed better on a memory task four months later than those who simply walked. More research has demonstrated that exercise can spur the growth of new brain cells, boost their ability to communicate to one another and even influence their shape and size.
The number of people over the age of 65 in the United States is on the rise. Neuroscientists are now convinced that the brain is capable of superior performance even into the 10thdecade and beyond. If the brain remains healthy and free from disease, it can continue to function normally for as long as we live. Sustained brain health is vital to aging and improved quality of life.
