Staying Fit Helps Prevent Dementia

Staying Fit Helps Prevent Dementia

by Isabelle Workman

Studies in the US have found that getting adequate amounts of exercise can help improve brain health and prevent conditions like dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The study found that nerve fibers in the brains of adults who are less physically active deteriorate more quickly than the nerve fibers for people who are physically fit. Over time, researchers say that degradation can lead to negative health outcomes like cognitive decline and memory loss – both of which are characteristics of dementia.

Research shows that improving your fitness, improves your brain health and slows down the aging process. Evidence suggests that what is bad for your heart, is bad for your brain.

So get moving and exercise – it will improve your heart health and your brain health!
