Exercise Protects You From Ageing & Memory-Loss
A newfound UC San Francisco study published in January 2022 has found an important link between exercise and cognition in the elderly. The link between the two have previously been noted in mice but never in humans. This is a breakthrough that the health industry has been waiting for!
While regular exercise comes with an array of health benefits (healthy bones, weight-loss, strong immune system, enhanced mood, etc.), this study focused specifically on how elderly people can benefit from staying active, thereby preventing decline in cognition and age-related memory-loss. It seems like exercise has been the memory potion we have been looking for!
The study noted that elderly people who exercise have more of a class of proteins in the brain that enhances the connections between neurons to maintain healthy cognition. These proteins may be vital to fending off dementia and age-related memory-loss.
This is a brilliant discovery because exercise can easily be incorporated into everyone's day-to-day life. The level of intensity is up to each individual, but keep in mind that even going for a walk or a swim counts!
