20 Minute Exercise Daily Increases Brain Health

Boost Your Brain Health

The importance of daily exercise cannot be over-emphasised as the article explains:

  • Just 20 minutes of daily exercise leads to dramatic increases in brain
  • Endurance runners who skipped exercise for 10 days had reductions in blood flow to their brain’s hippocampus, which is a region associated with memories and emotions
  • After about two weeks of not exercising, your endurance may suffer because of decreases in your VO2 max (also known as maximal oxygen intake)
  • Exercise benefits to blood pressure and glucose levels are also among the first to go if you skip too many workouts
