Exercise every day to keep Alzheimer’s away

A recent study says that regular exercise and workouts can prevent the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. This helps prevent the decline of vital nerve fibers that will keep the brain healthy. That means, the less you exercise, the higher the chances of getting Alzheimer’s at an early age.

The findings are based on a study of older patients who had early memory loss and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).

Study published in the journal of Alzheimer’s disease

The study focused on a tissue called the ‘white matter’ which is a type of brain tissue made up of billions of nerve fibers used by the cells that communicate across the brain.

Patients with Alzheimer’s were subjected to various types of tests before coming to the conclusion that fitness is important for preventing Alzheimer’s. They were given memory and other cognitive tests to measure their brain function.

This led to the conclusion that physical health is very important for the brain as well.
