A recent study reveals that regular moderate exercise practice in adulthood and old age benefits delaying brain cells aging up to 10 years.
This reminds me that wisdom already confirmed from past: the enormous benefits to the body and the health of regular and sustained exercise practice, especially needed as age progresses. Indispensable in old age.
To be healthy, move, move, move ..
If because of age you cannot run, jog, if you cannot jog, walk, if you cannot walk, use the stick, but never, never stop"
What is not used is lost
Unfortunately, most only we practice sports in youth and abandon it as we move into adulthood and old age. I was impressed to see reach the goal, albeit in last place, an old man of 100 years which tired but happy completed the 40 kilometers marathon.
Exercise at any age
Countless studies show that exercise plays a vital role in overall health, reduce illness, stress and slows aging. Researchers reviewed more than 40 studies and found that exercise reduces the risk of various diseases such as stroke, diabetes, coronary disease, cancer, depression, etc.
Even exercises in small amounts can be protected from memory loss to the elderly, even help reverse some features of the aging process.
People who have practiced exercises ten years in a row and began starting at age 50, significantly decreased the rate of premature death
On the other hand scientists of the National Cancer Research Center of Spain, University of Valencia, they discovered that consumption of vitamin B3 may slow aging
The study and brain rejuvenation
Dr. Clinton B Wright of the University of Miami led a group of researchers who discovered that moderate to intense exercise at the age of old age, could reduce the rate of brain aging up to 10 years.
They analyzed 876 people before starting the study and frequencies and time they spent practicing exercises were noted.
Seven years later were subjected to tests of magnetic resonance, memory and skills of knowledge to the study group and took five years after new test.
90% of the group not practiced or performed light exercises such as yoga and walking.
10% revealed moderate or high practice exercises such as aerobics and running. And they were classified as high-intensity group.
The researchers also evaluated collateral behaviors such as alcohol consumption, body mass, smoking, hypertension, etc.
The results revealed that the group practice of high-intensity exercise had a more efficient response in various tests of memory and mental ability, equivalent to ten years younger.
Dr. Clinton B Wright concluded that the practice of regular and sustained exercise in the years of old age has a protective effect and helps maintain longer the capabilities of the brain. The study was published in the online journal of Neurology.
