6 Months of Aerobic Exercise May Reverse the Mild Cognitive Impairment
A new study, published in the journal Neurology, suggests that a six-month regimen of aerobic exercise may reverse the mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in senior adults.
To study the effect of exercising, a team of researchers included 160 people with the average age 65 years who lead a sedentary way of life at the beginning of the study and had the risk of cardiovascular disease and symptoms of MCI.
The participants were divided into four groups: one group did aerobic exercises, the second adhered to the DASH diet without exercising, the third group did exercises and ate according to the DASH diets, the fourth group only received health-related educational phone calls.
Lead researcher James A. Blumenthal, Ph.D. of Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC, says: “The results are encouraging in that in just 6 months, by adding regular exercise to their lives, people who have cognitive impairments without dementia may improve their ability to plan and complete certain cognitive tasks.”
