 Goodness of Aerobic Exercise

Recent research has pointed out the extended benefits of aerobic exercise. It not only improves strength, it boosts metabolism. Now, researchers have found that it can have positive effects on aging and brain health.

A recent study has revealed that exercise is the only way older adults can improve their memory and overall cognitive health as they age.


People who were physically active were found to experience increased blood flow in the brain and their memory also improved. This could be due to increased blood flow in certain regions of the brain concerned with memory.

"Science has shown that aging decreases mental efficiency and memory decline is the number one cognitive complaint of older adults. This research shows the tremendous benefit of aerobic exercise on a person's memory and demonstrates that aerobic exercise can reduce both the biological and cognitive consequences of aging. To think we can alter and improve the basic structure of the mature brain through aerobic exercise and complex thinking should inspire us to challenge our thinking and get moving at any age," researchers said.
