How Exercise Helps You Age Better

For seniors, the benefits of physical activity extend beyond just helping to avoid injury and disability, Time.com reports.

This reaffirms what I’ve been saying for many years, as I offer help for stopping aging in its tracks, with ways to turn your golden years into super years. I’ve had fun spotlighting “super star” seniors who, through proper diet and exercise, are proving that you can be fit and spry no matter what your age.

One amazing thing I’ve learned is that it’s never too late to get back on track for strengthening strategies, and even intensive exercise such as high intensity interval training (HIIT). In the long run, the benefits are many, both physically and mentally, as studies have shown that even a small amount of exercise may protect the elderly from long-term memory loss and even help reverse some of the effects of aging.

With millions of Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, now is the best time of all to begin your exercise program for brain health in your elder years. Doing so can also help protect your brain from stress hormones, which can age you fast, even if you’re not aware of it.

Adding a nutritious diet rich in folate and omega-3 fats, and eliminating or at least reducing fructose (sugar) is always a good thing, as well as making sure that you consume foods rich in vitamin B12, and those that have high anthocyanin and antioxidant content, such as blueberries.
