Regular Exercise May Slow Down Alzheimer’s Disease

A new study, published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s disease, suggests that regular exercise, 4–5 times per week, may slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease in people with buildups of beta-amyloid protein in the brain.Regular Exercise May Slow Down Alzheimer’s Disease

The study included 70 participants aged 55 and over who were diagnosed with amnestic mild cognitive impairment. The researchers monitored the effect of a progressive, moderate to the high-intensity program of aerobic exercise on cognitive and executive function, as well as brain volume and cortical levels of beta-amyloid.

Lead author of the study prof. Rong Zhang says: “If these findings can be replicated in a larger trial, then maybe one day doctors will be telling high-risk patients to start an exercise plan. In fact, there's no harm in doing so now.”
