Study Shows That Stopping Exercise Routine Decreases Brain Blood Flow

An exercise routine increases blood flow to the brain but this benefit wears off in time. PsyPost reports that "if you do stop exercising for 10 days, just as you will quickly lose your cardiovascular fitness, you will also experience a decrease in blood brain flow." The full implications of this discovery are being examined but it is clear that exercise is vital for your physical and mental well-being.

The body of evidence linking exercise to cognitive benefits continues to expand. Among seniors, engaging in medium-to-high intensity exercise can slow brain aging by as much as 10 years. This most recent study hints at the possibility that the advantages of exercise can be quickly undone through inactivity alone. If you want to protect your cognitive health as you age, or even improve your memory and brain function, exercise should be at the top of your to-do list. Compelling evidence shows exercise improves memory and cognition, and helps stave off dementia.
