Moderate Physical Activity Associated with the Healthier Brain
A new study from the University of Wisconsin-Medison finds that moderate physical activity may lead to healthier brain functions in people at higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
In the course of the study, the scientists discovered that those participants who spent more than an hour per day taking part in moderate physical exercise demonstrated higher and healthier levels of glucose metabolism, the process giving brain cells the right amount of fuel, compared to those participants who did not exercise.
Ryan Dougherty, one of the researchers, says: “This study has implications for guiding exercise 'prescriptions' that could help protect the brain from Alzheimer's disease. While many people become discouraged about Alzheimer's disease because they feel there's little they can do to protect against it, these results suggest that engaging in moderate physical activity may slow down the progression of the disease.”
