Moderate exercise against Alzheimer's

We knew that exercise was not only good for overall health, but also for the brain. However, it was unclear exactly why.

This time, it is believed that because of the fact that exercise increases blood flow to the brain, which would "cleanse " the body of substances that can cause Alzheimer's disease.

The Telelgraph reports that researchers at the Institute for Exercise and Envrionmental Medicine of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas focused on the issue and found that exercise actually helps to prevent degenerative brain disease.

"First, the blood carries oxygen, glucose and other nutrients essential for good brain health. Second, the blood brain washing of metabolic wastes such as beta-amyloid protein released into the blood vessels involved in the development of Alzheimer's disease, researchers said.

Women aged 60 and over who walked three to four times a week for 30 to 50 minutes each time, participated in this research. Even with this moderate exercise, the results were good.
