Don’t Let Aging Destroy Your Memory

April 16, 2014 by  

This article originally appeared on Easy Health Options®.

Reducing your risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia is up to you. Research in Finland shows that something you can do twice a week helps protects your brain cells.

All you have to do, according to this study, is go for a long, vigorous walk twice a week to help your brain avoid deteriorating significantly as you age.

The researchers found that increased physical activity is particularly important if you are overweight. Having extra pounds increases your risk of dementia. But you don’t have to be a passive victim. Get moving!

The study also shows that you can start becoming more active at any age. Even if you are already a senior citizen, by exercising more you can still reduce the chance of your memory breaking down.
