Exercise Slows Brain Aging

Exercise Slows Brain Aging

 Interesting facts about exercise and brain aging:

 
  • Exercise improves memory and cognition, and helps stave off dementia. Strength training — and working your leg muscles in particular — has been shown to have a particularly strong impact on brain function and memory
  • Among seniors, engaging in medium-to-high intensity exercise can slow brain aging by as much as 10 years
  • Exercise also helps dispel depression — in many cases more effectively than antidepressants — and purges your body of stress chemicals associated with stress-related depression
